I love painted nails - it's rare to find my nails naked anymore. Not only do I enjoy the process of painting them (some times not) but I love the wide variety of color you can use to fancy em up. Spring always leaves me leaning toward lighter colors - mainly of the pastel kind. Last year, I practically went through the entire bottle of China Glaze's Refreshmint - a lovely shade of mint green that I'm still pretty into. So I thought today I'd share with you some colors my hands are trying to grab onto for spring...
I've really been wanting to try out butter nail polish, mainly for the non-toxic aspect but also for their understanding of what a girl like me wants out of her polish. Healthy nails, trendy colors and a fun description that makes me love my favourite Brit that much more. This color in particular has a nice pastel feel, perfect for spring.
RGB is another one of those nail polish brands I've yet to try, but want to try for the same reasons as Butter. It's free of harmful chemicals and it comes in a variety of awesome shades. The coral shade above is a beautiful hue of orange-red that would look amazing on the hands of everyone.
I had a manicure last year and chose a grape color very similar to this. It was really fun to wear and it constantly made me crave candy (mainly Sprees and Skittles). Plus, it's fun to tell people the name of your polish is "funky dunkey". You can say things like, "what the Funky Dunkey?!" and "who the Funky Dunkey is that?!"
Zoya - Christina
I've also never worn Zoya, but again, it's non-toxic. This shade is one of those kinds of shades that is really perfect all year round. It could be the best winter white, or a really soft spring shade. It's shimmery with a touch of silver and gray. Hooray!
Rescue Beauty Lounge - Starfish-Patrick
Did I choose this one simply because I love Patrick? Maybe. But I also chose this unfortunately sold-out shade because it is the perfect blend of peach-meets-coral and my fingers long to be covered in it.
I saved the best for last. This Essie polish (available in May) has stolen my heart...for now. It's the perfect follow up to last years mint craze and I want to wear it NOW!
What do you think, friends? What shades do you like to sport come springtime?
