Polishes for Spring
So when the sun came out I got carried away bearing my legs and painting on more spring appropriate polishes but then the weather changed and its cold and miserable again. However that doesn't change me sticking my ground with my nail colour choices, I love light pastel hues in the spring and summer months. I also secretly love how easy they are to remove and much as I might like those rich berry shades they leave my nails so stained and who wants yellow nails? Some here are some old classics and a couple of new additions to my ever growing collection.
Lets start with the new faces among my many bottles and they are the latest releases from L'Oreal, I picked them up when the 3 for 2 offer was still on in Boots. As soon as I saw Alix from I Covet Thee hold these up in a video I knew they were destined to come and join me and I picked up the shades Nouvelle Vague and Pistachio Drage. A milky lilac and pastel mint green, such lovely shades and the formula and brush are ideal as is the bottle size as it means you make the most out of it. In the same colour family is an old classic which is Essie 'Fiji' which is the most perfect milkshake pink shade I think I own, I always reach for this when the sun comes out as it is so light it makes your fingers and toes look a tad more sun kissed.
Of course I will reaching for the orange based reds too but something a little different is the Barry M Gelly Polish in 'Pomegranate'. A mix of berry and pink it is suitable for both A/W and S/S, although I do find the Barry M brushes a little bit fiddly to work with if I take my time it is fine. Rimmel 'Rose Libertine' has to be one the most perfect shades for nail polish, I'm a big fan of a dusky pink and this just ticks all the boxes. In fact I am on my second bottle of this and that is when I know I really like a polish when I buy it again. Finally is a shade from American Apparel and this isn't a place I really look into for my beauty purchases but whenever I am in store I gaze at the pretty colour ranges they have. The formula is great but aslas it does have the same fiddly brush as Barry M but I can forgive it for the fact it is opaque in one swipe.
What are you spring polish picks?
