Tennis Ball Neon For Wimbledon!

 With June, comes Summer (yea right!) and the grass court season of tennis. First up there's Queen's Club, held for 2 weeks and then the big one, Wimbledon! It is highly coveted by all the big names, from Federer, Djokovic, Nadal and of course, everyone's favourite British Scott, Murray!

When you think of Wimbledon, you automatically think of strawberries and cream, Pimms and tennis balls. So it is with this in mind that I bring you an aptly themed polish from Orly, called 'Tennis Ball Neon' from their Colour Blast Collection. It is the perfect colour to wear whilst supporting your favourites at the tournament.

 Whilst applying this it went on fairly streaky and needed at least 3 coats to make it look anywhere near decent. And it didn't last that well on me and started to chip in about 3 days!  With better care and a good topcoat I can see it having better longevity. But the application out me off as I like a polish to go on with no streaks and I don't have enough patience to wait between three coats...! MEH! This one's an #OUT from me!

With June comes strawberry season and what better way to enjoy them than simply served fresh like this, alongside a Pimms or could even add a strawberry or two into your glass.....who said getting your five a day had to be boring!? Along side the original Pimms I have a new flavour, Elderflower and Blackberry. I did have a Strawberry one, but umm, yeah, I drank it after mowing the lawns on Monday!! haha! But whichever flavour you choose, you are guaranteed to be enjoying a British favourite and thinking of wild berry picking, or popping off to pick your own strawberries, which is also very popular at this time of year!

I absolutely love the colour of this nail polish, it is so different from my usual colours and perfect for the grass court season of Tennis and also, when it eventually arrives, Summer! In America, it is known as 'Road Trippin' and I can understand why! Memories of driving down country lanes, roof down with the wind in my hair spring to mind and with this on your nails, your Summer outfit is complete!
In Boots it retails at £9.50.

Love, Sarah
