We switch a lot of things up as the seasons change, clothing and skincare are job one for me but I never really think about makeup let alone nails. This year I thought I would share my top picks for spring as it seems a popular ‘thing to do’ within the beauty community.
First up in wouldn’t be Spring without Greens right? My favourites from my collection have to be ‘Did it on em’ from OPI and Khaki from W7. The Khaki has to be one of my all time favourite budget polishes.. it looks demure and classic but.. it’s green! It’s a great one for Autumn too. Did it on em is very bright and it’s not going to be for everyone, from the new Nicki Minaj collection it’s a recent addition for me which is in part why it was selected. I want to get some wear out of it as the warmer weather approaches.
Next are the blue tones. These two Models Own polishes are in my top 10 for sure.. Beth’s Blue is possibly the most flattering shade of cornflower blue I’ve ever seen. It’s honestly mesmerising to me when I’m wearing it. Utopia, which ok is closer to a grey or a purple, is what I consider to be a more wearable alternative to nude or white nails. It’s still a big trend but not everyone can pull it off, Utopia is more delicate and timeless. Lastly I have chosen Fly, another from the Nicki Minaj for OPI collection. This is very different, a bold teal blue which I can only imagine will look amazing against tanned skin in summer but spring is when you start to think about injecting the colour back in and although blue isn’t for everyone it’s quickly become one of my favourites. I will warn you though.. it’s also one of the worst I’ve ever used for staining my nails!
On to my third and final category.. pinks! I couldn’t not mention Casting Call by Sally Hansen. Unfortunately I believe that at least in the UK this has been discontinued but my main reason for loving this is the formula and one would hope that the quality is consistent throughout the ‘complete salon manicure’ range. It’s a gorgeous every day colour but I wont dwell because as I said.. it’s no longer available. One of my favourites has always been Models Own Pink Punch. It’s the brightest polish I own, practically fluorescent and I always think a super bright polish is the ultimate accessory to an all black outfit and I wear a lot of black!
At this time of year you’re looking to inject colour in to your wardrobe but I’m a neutrals kinda girl and I find nail polish the easiest way to do it!
