I'm so happy summer is here so I can legitimately use my Models Own Polish for Tans collection, it's just so pretty! Today I've used the coral from the original release, Beach Bag. It's actually brighter than it looks in the photos, definitely a neon pastel - if that makes sense? I teamed it with Models Own Coconut* which sets it off perfectly.
I love wide striped manis for a couple of reasons, firstly thicker stripes are easier to paint neatly. They also remind me of the seaside - stripes rock, deck chairs, beach huts etc! The background to these photos is also fairly beachy, which adds to the overall feel too. This pattern always feels summery to me, but especially so with a cream and coral colour scheme. I've done it before in bright pink and another time in mint green, both with a cream base. The cream base makes the bold design slightly more subtle and wearable, two bright colours combined might be a bit much!!
