Hello my lovelies,
I love spring and all the colours associated with spring. Pastel colours for me are absolutely beautiful and always make me happy. Pastel nails look incredible and are certainly something I wear an awful lot this time of year. Unfortunately, I am awful at painting my nails, I have zero patience and I always seem to scuff my nails somehow when they are drying. I am sure I am not the only one that has the same problems?
Nonetheless, painted nails look better and through all the stress it causes me I do think they are well worth doing. I suppose I could pay for someone to do my nails each week but really who has the time or money for this – not me! I must say spring nail polish is my favourite and I thought I would share with you my top 3..
Maybelline – Colour Show 60 Seconds Nail Polish, 301 Love this Sweater see here
Anything that claims to be quick drying I am a sucker for. I do not have the time to sit and wait for hours for nail polish to dry and 9/10 I would have scuffed at least one nail. I do find that this nail polish is quick drying, and I think that is one of the main reasons it is in my top 3. The formulation is quite impressive, I do worry with lighter shades that you will have to apply layer after layer for the desired effect but actually 2 coats and you are good to go.
I really love this colour, I haven’t really seen anything like it. It’s a pretty dusty pink shade which everyone has been loving recently. Although I don’t wear pink items of clothing I can pull it off on my nails just about! This is the perfect shade for being on trend but not going OTT. Who doesn’t need a nude nail polish in their life!?
Rimmel, by Rita Ora – Nail Polish in 860 Bestival Blue see here
Personally for me, Rimmel do the best formulation of nail polishes. I know they are not well known for them but seriously trust me on this one. The formulation is amazing 2 coats and you are good to go and the drying time is next to nothing. They are super long lasting, I go around a week before reapplying or changing the colour. Most other nail polishes I have seem to chip like no tomorrow.
The colour though, wow. I think this is my favourite. Powder blue, yes please! It’s absolutely beautiful and I love the way it compliments my skin tone and if I am honest I think this is the sort of colour that would compliment any skin tone. If you ever see me this spring I think this is what I will be wearing most of the time. I blooming love it!
Kiko – Nail Lacquer 389, Mint Milk see here
So KIKO is a brand that I think is truly underrated. They do amazing products at low prices – a whole store of makeup is my sort of heaven. I love going in there because they so frequently bring out new lines and colours, if you have never been into store before I would highly recommend.
In this range they do every colour you could imagine, which is why I think I have so many of them. I don’t know how they get to some of these colours but it is amazing to have a browse through and see what takes your fancy. This sort of colour is really one of my favourites I love this colour, especially in spring. I normally apply around 3 coats of this onto my nails just for the level of colour I want but obviously this is personal preference. The only downside to these polishes is that they chip quite easily. I find it so annoying because it is such a beautiful colour but I find myself nearly every day topping this up. I suppose you can’t have everything!
Let me know what your favourite nail polishes for spring are, I love to find new gems!
