Nail Colors for Spring!!!

Hi guys!! I hope you're all having a lovely day. :) Here in San Diego we've definitely been experiencing some of that May gray (a few days early though!!). In light of that, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite spring nail polishes to brighten things up a bit.

Painting my nails is definitely one of my favorite things to do when I've got a quiet minute to myself. I love to turn on a  few youtube videos and light a candle, and the whole process is just super calming and relaxing. I'm by no means an expert, but I guess I just feel a bit like when my nails look put together, my life is a bit more put together!

In the spring, I tend to go for more light pastels and nude tones. Another really popular trend is very bright, fun colors, but I tend to save those more for summer, when the sun is out :) Here are five nail polishes I've been loving lately!


1) L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in the shade 330 Smell the Roses ($4.79)- This is a matte dusty rose kind of shade that I think would be really flattering on a lot of skin tones. I find that it lasts pretty well and doesn't chip. I have it on my nails currently, it's been about 4 days and I'm just starting to see a bit of wear, which isn't bad considering I'm the worst at taking care of my manicures. Like honestly, I'm the kind of person to paint my nails and then eat a bag of chips. It's awful.

2) Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in the shade 60 African Tea Rose ($3.77)- Many of you said on my Ipsy haul that you really liked the shade of the Julie G nail polish I received (post here!) and I've got to say, that shade and this shade are EXACT dupes of each other. They're both really gorgeous hot barbie pink shades, but I do tend to prefer the Revlon once because the formula is a bit thicker, and on top of that, it leaves your fingernails smelling like roses!


3) Probelle Nail Lacquer in the shade Into the Blue ($6)- The thing that I love most about this polish is that it's so unique. I don't think I've ever seen a sky blue shade like this in stores before. If you have, be sure to let me know in the comments! It has a really lovely, creamy texture and goes on like a dream. I also received this product in an Ipsy bag, back in January!


4) Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in the shade 409 Good to Grape ($6.49)- This polish is probably the oldest one in this favorites collection, and it's one that I always go back to this time of year. Purple is my favorite color, and often times purple shades are too dark to wear this time of year. Alternatively, they end up being too pale, and you really lose that cool tone. I really love this polish because it's just a perfect, true, pastel purple.

5) Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in the shade 310 Almost Almond ($6.49)- Another Sally Hansen polish! I really love her Complete Salon Manicure line, the brushes are just so perfectly shaped.You can cover almost your entire nail with one swipe. This shade is a slightly shimmery nude tone, where you can barely tell you have nail polish on. I like to do 3 coats so that it's completely opaque. It's just a little something different this time of year, but it still looks very classy on the nails! 


This post ended up being much chattier than I anticipated! I hope you've all enjoyed it though. Be sure to let me know in the comments what some of your favorite nail colors are :)
