Sometimes, it’s a bit of a relief when capsule collections are small – Intensae Summer 2014 Nail Shades are three! There is an absolute abundance of new nail shades at the moment so it’s difficult for smaller brands to be heard through the lacquer noise. I like Intensae as a brand – they’re not shouty and always come up with some edgy colours that are wearable, and crucually, durable.

The three new colours (from bottom to top), Ophelie, Mars and Emmeline totally have the summer spirit – you could buy all three and that’s a sophisticated summer nail wardrobe sorted. Personally, Mars, a bright coral shade, is my favourite and although I love a nude nail, Ophelie is a little too on the elastoplast spectrum for me but would suit dark skin tones beautifully as an elegant nude. They’re a little on the pricy side, too, at £14.95 (HERE) but they’re 5-free and the quality is all there.
