THE SPRING NAIL EDIT


Happy Friday! Now here in the UK I can't exactly say that it looks like Spring just yet (although my hayfever begs to differ); but today I thought I'd pretend, seeing as technically it's only two days until the start of Spring (where is the year going?) I'm going to be showing to my top 5 nail polishes that remind me of the warmer happier weather, flowers, and general Spring vibe.




Barry M generally kills it with the nail polishes. The price and quality of them is amazing and I don't know anyone who doesn't like these polishes who've tried them. The colours that give me a Spring vibe are the Gelly Hi-Shine polishes in Papaya (the bright orange), Prickly Pear (the pastel-ly purple), Sugar Apple (the turquoise) and Dragon (the perfect pink). The formula of these fit their names perfectly - they look and feel like you've got gel nails (and they save you a LOT of money in that respect). Also, and this particularly applies to me, they don't chip very easily when you've got two coats of polish! The other polish I've gone for is the Essie shade Urban Jungle. It's a gorgeous nude with a taupe undertone and if you've got to tone down the nail colour slightly for work or school/college then this is the shade for you; it's pretty and pale but in a summery kind of way.

So there you go, my top 5. Have you got any go-to nail polishes for the Spring?

  2. I usually wear pink nails (I am now haha) but I would like to try more purple/mauve for spring. Prickly Pear looks very nice, please show us a picture with your nails painted in this lovely colour!
