One of our favourite beauty trends for summer 2018 is blue makeup, which we're translating into blue nail polishes. With a countless array of vibrant and bright hues to offset your favourite vacation destination; we can't wait to try these out.

5 of the best blue nail polishes for summer

The natural one

Nailberry is a great brand if you suffer from nail sensitivity, are pregnant or just want to clean up your nailcare routine thanks to its natural formulation. Free from the common nasties like DBP, toluene, formaldehyde, alcohol, parabens, and gluten, the  L'Oxygéné Nail Lacquer has an oxygenated formula which allows the nails to breathe even when wearing the polish.

The royal one

If, like us, you're all over the royal family hype this summer, you will adore Deborah Lippmann's Gel Lab Pro Colour in Stupid Boy. With a deep hue that gets you in the mood to sing "Rule Britannia", it's a great polish to wear if you're hosting many a garden party. It gives a gel-like finish without the use of UV lamps, and is free from the common chemical nasties present in some nail varnishes.

The festival one

If you're heading to a festival this summer, take the Ciaté London Mini Gelology™ Paint Pot in Palm Springs with you. It's a smaller size so easy to pack and travel with, and sets like a gel without the use of a UV lamp. With adhesive polymers and a mirror-like finish, it will last through every concert, pool party and late night festival celebration.

The one for the inner mermaid

If you're heading away to the beach this summer and know you'll spend all of your time in the pool, you will love the Shake that Tail Nail Varnish. Irridescent in colour, the polish goes from pink to blue and gold for a high-shimmer effect that looks beautiful in the sunshine. Pop it on both your nails and toes for an ultra-metallic finish.

The "if you're heading to the Côte d'Azur" one

In the same hue as the lookfantastic teal, Butter London's Trend Nail Lacquer in Poole is the perfect choice if you're heading to the Italian or French Riviera this summer. With a bright shade that's reminiscent of St. Tropez's vibrant verandas, we're predicting this to be a summer sell-out. It has a mirror-like gloss finish with a chip-resistant formula, so you can be sure it'll last throughout your holiday.
