SPRING PASTELS.


Now Spring vibes are all around us, I can't help but mix up my skincare routine and have any excuse to go shopping! Before I hit the shops I decided to try and use what I already have before I go and buy a thousand of the same colour polish or another toner that I really don't need. When I had a little Spring clean, I was surprised how many beautiful nail polishes I already had in my rather over sized collection. I could have filled this post with so many amazing shades but I decided to pick a few pairings of colours that are from the same palette but could look gorgeous on your toes and fingers or on their own. 

First up is my favourite palette for Spring and Summer, Mint. With out a doubt if I ever pick up nail polish on my travels it will be a cool mint. My eye is just drawn to them and I love the way it looks on my nails and with my clothes. To favourites of mine is Rimmel London Salon Pro Polish in Peppermint, which is a richer dark pastel mint and a newbie of mine from Models Own Scented Polish range in Apple Pie, a good enough to eat cool pastel. Both of these polishes apply evenly and need two coats. The Models Own Polish does take a while to become opaque and takes longer to dry than most but the colour is worth the wait.


The next pair is my two favourite purple shades. Nails Inc Polish in Devonshire Row c/o is a bright pop of warm pinky lilac that applies like a dream and leaves the most incredible shine without any top coat. This colour looks fab on toes in the Summer. Rococo Polish in Lady Lavender c/o is the perfect pastel lilac. I have it on my nails as I type actually and it is so pretty. Very lady like for a sunny Spring day.




My final paring are simple nude tones. A new favourite of mine from Barry M Matte Nail Paint collection is this shade in Vanilla. It creates a chic nail with a matte finish. The colour has a slightly warm lilac hue that looks stunning against my skin tone. With a very similar tone as this polish, Models Own Nail Polish in Utopia gives a similar affect but with a shine. I have to say I am having a love affair with this polish. It is juts dreamy and the perfect pastel. I wrote about it fully HERE.

What are your favourite shades for Spring? Your favourite minty pastel?
