My nails are ready for spring, and to be totally honest so am I. I cannot wait to ditch the thick coat for light layering. Despite favouring blacks, greys and neutral in general for my clothes, in spring I like to give my looks accents of colours through my nail polish.
Essie Bikini so Teeny is a shade I coveted since it became a cult a couple of years ago, it was close to impossible to find. I finally grabbed mine in CVS when in New York last summer and couldn’t be any happier. It is a cornflower blue with very small silver glitters running through it which give dimension to the color when applied but do not show in any obvious way. If I fancy something darker than Nails Inc Baker Street is one of my go to.
Probably the favourite red in my collection, if not my favourite shade of ALL my collection, is Soigné Persimmon. Whenever I don’t know which colour to choose, this orangey-red is always a safe bet. Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine in Pomegranate it’s a darker yet bright red that still makes a statement, the perfect transition shade.
WHITE + PINKS
These are the pastel-shades of the pack. Part of the Macaron Collection, Soigné Lavande is a fresh lilac colour perfect for when I feel for a more neutral shade. Essie Blanc and Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine in Rose Hip are sure to give a pop of colour. Blanc is exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a true white that despite what you might think really makes quite a statement as a bright red or blue could. When I don’t want to go for a true white but still want a white-ish shade – contradictory I know but I’m sure we’ve all been there, then Rose Hip is the safest bet cause it gives the same effect that a true white would but with a bit of pink undertone giving an extra kick.
