If there's one that I love almost as much as I love lipstick, then it's a good nail polish.  Does it matter if we own three shades that are questionably very similar to each other?  No.  No it does not.  I've made it pretty clear on here before that my favourite brand for nail polishes is Barry M, so it's no surprise that two of them have made it on to this post today.  Nothing looks better then having a nice tan (real or fake) complimented with a bright colour on your nails, so I've picked a few that go very nicely indeed.  

So to start with Barry M I've chosen the shade Coconut, which is a lovely creamy white shade that is just made for wearing with beautiful bronzed skin!  It is the best off-white shade I've tried too - no tipex fingers to be seen around here.  
Another Barry M offering is from the Matte range, in the shade Copacabana.  This is a gorgeous orange red colour, and the matte finish works really well.  
Then there is this vibrant pink shade, Fiesta, by Essie which I have to say has been on my nails the most so far this summer.  I love it so much, and particularly love wearing it on my toes.  This shade of pink goes really well with my fake tan and the super shiny finish makes it really worth spending a little on Essie.  
My budget pick is the Seventeen Nail Colour in Tropical Island, which has a very appropriate name and is a lovely bright orange colour.  The colour is bright and it lasts 3 to 4 days without any chipping, which is pretty good going for a budget polish.  

I definitely could have picked a lot more colours out for this post, but I chose the main four that I always pick up when I'm at my most bronzed!  Let me know which colours you love to use to show off your tan! xx
