NailSwatchTitle

 

Around this time last year I released a blog post on my top 5 nail polishes for summer, which I’m pretty sure has been my most popular post to date. I must say I was being a little premature last time around considering summer doesn’t actually begin until the end of June… So this year I decided to actually get my seasons straight and give you guys some spring polishes first (I mean I know I’m a little late sorry about that). So here you have it ladies, some of my fav springy nail polishes.

NailSwatch1

This is either the ugliest or the cutest colour ever. It’s true to the name “American Denim”, a true blue jeans blue. Also this guy is on sale at American Apparel for 50% so I mean you need it right (I can’t find it online but my store has like a bajillion so you can probs track on down in store still)?

NailSwatch5

It wouldn’t be a spring nail post without a little lavender am I right ladies? This one is pale without making my super pale sense look even more washed out and I love the Formula X formula (actually cringed while writing that I’m sorry you had to read it). Side note: Sephora describes this colour as “lavender mist” and I don’t even know what that means but it’s pretty so whateva.

I don’t even need to talk about this one. It’s salmon and adorable and Essie’s formula is on point and isn’t streaky and this colour gets me a million compliments every time I wear it to work. Van D’Go is flawless, okay bye.

This guy has all the swatches because I wanted to try and show how one layer compared to two (tops is one, bottom is two). I think it’s super cute by itself but it looks great on top of another colour as well, Van D’Go here. This may not be everyone’s cup of tea but sometime I just want to feel like a pretty princess and this does it for me. Sorry… Can’t find this one online either but it was also 50% off in store if you can track it down!

NailSwatch5.1First things first, sorry this is the messiest swatch ever but my nails were struggling. This one is probably my most worn polish from the past few months. I think white nail polish look so chic and effortless and as you can see I love American Apparel’s formula (fun fact they’re made in the same place as OPI but are $3 less expensive). I’ve heard raves about Blanc from Essie but I’m gonna stick to this bad boy for the time being.

So there you have it folks, just a little handful of both my old and some new favourites. My favourite two are T-Shirt and Van D’Go but clearly I like the rest of them enough to put them in a post so they’re all pretty fab. So if you don’t have any of these go get yourself some (or at least try to find some similar colours)!
