Summer is the season of festivals, alfresco dining and beach trips. It is also sandal season. It’s time to take those socks off and let your toes breathe in a new pair of sandals. The best accessory to any pair of sandals is a pretty nail polish. Dark, moody colours work in the winter, but in the summer we want nail varnish colours that are bold and festive. These look-at-me polishes are perfect for summer.
