Spring Nail Polish Picks

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!

  17. What a great selection. I recently bought my first pastel coloured nail polish (Sally Hansen) and it got me started in the blogging world. It really is great to get in the summery mood.

    Thanks for the reviews, might have to try one of these next!
