We all love painting our nails right?
Well i know i do anyway, so i get pretty exited when spring comes around and i start to get out all my pretty pastel polishes.
Most of these are drugstore so really inexpensive and here they are ...
|L-R // Essie - To Buy Or Not To Buy // Rimmel - Sweet As Sugar // Nails Inc - Elizabeth Street // Collection - Fruit Loop // OPI - Alpine Snow // Barry M - Strawberry I/C.|
Essie To Buy Or Not To Buy - A pretty, grey toned Lilac with a very slight blue shimmer, super pretty goes on smoothly, opaque in two coats with a good dry time. Plus the blue shimmer gives a nice twist to an otherwise average lilac.
Rimmel Sweet As Sugar - I only brought this a few weeks back and can't stop wearing it. A gorgeous baby/icy blue that looks great on its own or paired with silver glitter. Because its such a light shade it does take a few coats to build up too the color in the bottle but goes on streak free and stays put for ages even without a top coat.
Nails Inc Elizabeth Street - Perfect for a french manicure paired with alpine snow. Or to wear on its own for a simple but more polished look. Apply's well, takes a few coats to get opaque coverage but i personally think it looks better when sheer.
Collection Fruit Loop - This one is a little deceiving as in the bottle it looks a pastel peach shade, but once applied seems to look a lot brighter on the nails. If you want a true pastel peach i wouldn't recommend applying more than one coat. But whether its a more toned down peach or slightly brighter i still think it looks really nice.
OPI Alpine Snow - Great for the tips of a french manicure as its a true white shade that lasts for ages and is opaque in just one/two coats. Although glitter/crackle topcoats look nice on top of this.
Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream - From the Ice Cream collection, a very basic yet pretty pastel pink that suits everybody and i think is a must for spring. Opaque in just two coats, lasts for ages and is really easy to get hold of.Plus Barry M do a whole range of pastels so defiantly worth checking out!
