For the past three summers I have been pregnant, trying to get pregnant and then pregnant again so I have pretty much avoided buying fashion as there was no point with my ever changing body. This summer, that is all about to change and the timing is perfect. The colours of the season are right up my alley - all fluoros and brights. When I saw the Bio Sculpture Beach Holiday Nail Collection Pack I knew the colours were going to fit right in with my new wardrobe.
Their are four colours in the Holiday Collection - 132 Coral Cove, 133 Isla del Sol, 134 Aquacade and 135 Appletini and, during the Christmas period all four colours can be bought together in a nail polish gift pack for $29.95 or individually for $17.95. Alternatively, the colours are also available in the Bio Sculpture Gels for in salon application.
I did used to think that wearing different coloured nail polish on each finger was a tad 'Year 8 try hard' but these colours look spectacular together! In fact, I got two compliments on my nails whilst I was at the shops today.
132 Coral Cove

Coral Cove is a great bright pink - it is more of a pink with the slightest coral hue rather than a true coral. This was opaque and streak free after two coats.
133 Isla del Sol

Isla del Sol is a very, very bright yellow (but not fluoro). I am not sure whether I could pull off a full manicure of this colour; however, it does look amazing side by side the other colours. It would also be ideal for use in nail art, if that is your thing. I'm not really steady handed enough to do nail art so I have included some examples from the Bio Sculpture Blog at then end of this post that you can use for inspiration. It took 4 coats to get this colour to be opaque and streak free.
Aquacade screams summer. It is such a gorgeous tropical turquoise. I think that it is a very wearable blue, both on its own or mixed with the other colours. This was opaque and streak free in two coats.
As the name suggests this is a real apple green. Green is actually my favourite colour though I don't tend to wear a lot of green nail polish. I can see this green changing that! It took 3 coats for it to be streak free and opaque.
As I mentioned above, I a not really skilled enough to do my own nail art so here are some examples of manicures that you can get by a nail artist at a Bio Sculpture Salon.

The two paler colours - Isla del sol and Appletini - took more than 2 coats for me but that is probably because I wanted them completely opaque. Other than hat I agree with everything they say.

Do these colours float your boat? Are they exactly the type of colours you want to be wearing this summer?
