Spring Polish Picks




As spring is now upon us for todays post I thought I would share with you all my go-to polish shades for this season. I like to change my nail colour palette as the weather changes so here's a breakdown of my top 5 favourite colours for Spring. 



White// 

Butter London- Cotton Buds 


A white polish is great for enhancing your tan and the Butter London shade in Cotton Buds is a long wearing nail lacquer that I find to be a staple for this season. It applies easily and I find 2/3 coats gives me great Opacity. As this is a nail lacquer it dries quickly which is important for me as there's nothing worse than having to sit around doing nothing while you wait for your nails to dry. 

Pink//

Ciate Candy Floss


I think a pink polish is a must have for spring and this particular shade by Ciate is one of my favourites. I received this in their annual christmas calendar last year and whenever I want a pastel pink on my nails this is my go-to. These polishes are highly pigmented and I find two coats to look opaque and they dry quickly which I appreciate. I find the brush on these minis the perfect size for painting the nail without getting in a mess. I would recommend ciate nail paints and especially their advent calendars as they are good value for money. 



Orange//
Illamasqua Whack


An orange polish is one I like to pull out when Spring arrives and this Illamasqua shade is a beautiful colour with a glossy creme finish. It applies simply and I would describe the colour as a bright tangerine with a touch of red that catches the eye. Illamasqua have one of my favourite formulas for nail polishes purely for the fact that they are so hard-wearing on the nails and this shade is completely opaque with two smooth coats. 


Lilac//

Essie Lilacism



Lilacism is a beautiful pale lavender with a creme finish and the formula is very smooth and easy to apply. You do need to apply three thin coats to get the desired creamy pastel effect however It's worth it because the finish is beautiful. The staying power is fantastic on all Essie Polishes and If you're looking for a Lilac polish I would definitely suggest this one. 


Mint Green//

Essie Mint Candy Apple



Essie's Mint Candy Apple is a beautiful pastel mint green shade with an excellent formula. It is opaque in two coats and I do not find it to be streaky. This colour is a cult favourite and with good reason as is is a very flattering colour that stands out. As previously mentioned Essie polishes apply with ease and last well too.
