Top 5 | Spring Polishes

[Clockwise from top centre: Bikini So Teeny, Lacey Lilac, Suzi Shops & Island Hops, Is Mai Tai Crooked?, Mellow Yellow]

As the second installment in my Top 5 series, I wanted to share my favourite spring nail polishes. Missed my first post in the series? You can read it HERE.

I love soft, pastel nails in the spring time. Though above the yellow and orange polishes look a bit deeper in tone, it must have been my lighting - apologies - in real life they are both muted pastel colours like the others. At work I am not allowed to have nail polish on so I haven't swatched all of these on my nails for you, again sorry, but I will link to other posts where you can see some of these shades on my nails. You can also follow me on Instagram, where I post pictures of my nails when I have multiple days off in a row and can paint my nails.

Essie in Bikini So Teeny - This cornflower blue shade with a hint of shimmer is a seasonal favourite of mine. I don't really get on with Essie polishes, but I put up with the chipping for the gorgeous shade range they have. I've done a full post on it HERE so you can see it swatched on my nails.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow - The pale yellow shade really sets off a tan in the summer, but I love it in the spring as well. The colour reminds me of the beautiful daffodils blooming in the gardens around the city.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Lacey Lilac - The Xtreme Wear polishes are one of my favourite formulas at the drugstore, and these are often on sale for dirt cheap! This light lilac shade is one I've had for years, and wear it all the time. I've done a full post on it HERE so you can see it swatched on my nails.

OPI in Is Mai Tai Crooked? - I was sent a few OPI nail polishes a little while ago from their Hawaii collection, and these two were included. This orange shade is pastel, yet somehow neon at the same time, so strange! Orange is one of my favourite colours and I love wearing it on my nails.

OPI in Suzi Shops & Island Hops - A classic light pink shade. It's a touch pinker than the famous 'Mod About You' shade, but I think I like this one more for that reason. Style Watch magazine has said that this shade is the colour of the season, and I've been seeing it everywhere - in fashion, makeup, so why not wear it on your nails as well?!

What is your favourite spring polish? What beauty item would you like to see next?

PS: This is my 100th post!! =D Super pleased with that. Though not an accomplishment for many, for me, as I started this as an outlet to share my love for all things beauty with cyber space. And now there are so many people who actually read my blog, and I've stuck with it for over a year now. I'm so thankful for all of you that continue to read my beauty rambles!
