spring favourites: nails

Hello everyone!

Hope you're all well! today i thought i'd do something a bit new to me. I was going to do a march favourites, but i don't have many products that i had just been loving in march, i have been enjoying most of them for quite a while now. So instead i thought i'd do a series of posts of my favourite products for spring, starting with todays post: nails!

L-R: barry m gelly hi shine nail paint in prickly pear | models own nail polish in buff pink | 17 lasting fix nail polish in sherbet lemon | rimmel lasting finish nail polish in sweet as sugar | claires nail polish |

As you can see, all of these polishes are pastel colours, i love pastels for spring and then often opt for brights when the weather gets a bit warmer! I know bourjois have just brought out an amazing line of pastel nail polishes that i just need to get my hands on it!

I love the barry m gelly hi shine nail paint in prickly pear because it is such a gorgeous lilac colour and looks really nice on the nails. I would say this one is the easiest to apply out of all of the ones i have chosen because it's quite thick and opaque and doesn't go streaky, i have a more detailed review/notd here! Models Own's buff pink is a gorgeous milky pink and looks gorgeous on the nails! it isn't too bright and is almost like a pinky-nude shade! Last summer, i was looking for a yellow nail polish that wasn't too garish and bright, but i couldn't find one, so when i saw 17's lasting fix nail polish in sherbet lemon immediately! Although it goes on quite sheer and can go streaky but is opaque after around 2-3 coats. I also have a blog post here on my next favourite nail polish for spring, rimmel's lasting finish nail polish in sweet as sugar, a gorgeous pale blue which i'm currently sporting on my nails now! It applies really smoothly and lasts well without chipping for a good few days! The final spring nail polish favourite is this lovely pail green from claires. I bought this a few years ago so i'm not sure if it's still available but i think there are a few similar to this in boots/superdrug. It's a really nice colour and applies pretty opaque!

barry m gelly hi shine nail paint prickly pear - boots 3.99
models own nail polish pink buff - boots 5
17 lasting fix nail polish sherbet lemon - boots 2.99
rimmel lasting finish nail polsih sweet as sugar - boots 2.99
claire's nail polish - not online sorry!

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed this post!
