Summer. There’s no better time to rock your favourite bold colours - from blue eyeliner, to pink dresses, to yellow shoes, right down to orange pedicures.
Even monochrome lovers have to admit that a bold mani-pedi combo looks fun and fresh in summer, and takes you from beach party to barbecue with ease. And, now, you can wear your favourite polish shades for longer – without setting foot in a salon – thanks to Rimmel London Super Gel Nail Polish, £5.99, and its hard-wearing formula.
With the glossy look and plump feel of an in-salon gel manicure, Super Gel makes it easy to DIY that pro finish – and you don’t even need a UV lamp. Simply apply a coat or two of your favourite colour, then apply the Super Gel Top Coat, £5.99, to lock it down, and enjoy your flawless mani for up to 14 days.
There are 20 shades to choose from – each one as excellent as the last – but to get you started, we’ve rounded up three summer bright looks that are so on trend this season…
I See Red
If the catwalks have taught us anything, it’s that red is back with a vengeance this summer. Wear it on your nails for a timeless, glamorous burst of brightness and match it to your lipstick for an effortless, pulled-together look.

Come summer drizzle or shine, an ocean-inspired blue manicure always wins. Wear the colour of the season in a shimmering blue-grey to keep it subtle, or go for an impactful turquoise that contrasts gorgeously against a white dress.Rimmel London’s 60 Second Nail Polishes in Loafer For You, Port-a-Loo Blue, and Danny Boy, £5.99
Not sure which colour you want to wear? This summer, there’s no need to choose. Grab five of your favourite polishes and paint up each nail in a different shade.
