Spring Nails

Sunday, February 15, 2015

What's that I hear you say? The sun has been starting to make more appearances and the temperature has been staying in the plus figures? Why, yes it has! This, coupled with the fact that the nights are starting to draw out, can only mean one thing...

Spring is on the way. Finally!

This also means that it's acceptable for the lighter, pastel-coloured nail varnishes to come out and when I popped in to town recently, the beauty counters were full to the brim with them! 

Barry M was the first brand I hit, after seeing their new Speedy Quick Dry range doing the rounds of bloggersphere. There are nine new shades in total, however, I only purchased four - aren't I good! I picked up 'Lap of Honour' (a soft lilac), 'Full Throttle' (a pastel orange), 'Road Rage' (a mint green) and 'In A Heart Beat' (a pastel coral/pink). Quick note: aren't those just the coolest names, love it! I've heard some great things about this new set and I'm so happy to see they now have flat brushes. It's certainly safe to say my hopes are pretty high at this point!

I then decided to make a stop at the Essie counter to see if I could finally get my hands on 'Mint Candy Apple' and I am pleased to report, it was in stock and went straight in to my basket. I then spotted a gorgeous pink, named 'Bump Up The Pumps', that also had to be mine. The final Essie polish that is new to my collection wasn't actually bought in store but online instead, after the Winter 2014 mini-collection was half price on Amazon. The deep pink, 'Double Breasted Jacket' seemed to be the perfect transition colour between spring and summer, hence the inclusion here. I confess that I do not own too many Essie polishes but the couple I do have, I adore and I'm sure these will not disappoint either!

You'll be seeing more detailed reviews going up every Sunday over the next couple of months as part of my 'Nails of the Week'; I can't wait to try them all out. 

The only question left is that it's nail change day today, but which to go for first?! Decisions, decisions. 

What are your top picks for nails this spring? Let me know in the comments below!
