Spring has sprung – and I can’t be more excited! Spring means a green and flowering gardens, pedicures, colourful sandals and pastel colours!
Today I’ll be showing you my top 5 nail polishes for Spring. Spring, to me, means sorbet-coloured shades. Whereas, Summer = bright and colourful – thus, I’ll be doing a ‘Top 5 Summer Nail Polishes’ blog post as soon as Summer is in full swing.
So let’s jump right in:
Essie – Mint Candy Apple
I love this shade for Spring, it’s the perfect mix of both pastel blue and pastel mint green. Two coats are all you need for full opacity and the longevity of this little polish is great.
Suntra Colour – 204
I received this nail polish in a Rubybox / Glambox / Glossybox last year and I must say, I have been pleasantly surprised. The colour is the perfect milky purple, leaning more towards a warm-toned purple which is perfect for my skintone. This polish also wears quite well and doesn’t chip as quick as the MAC polishes (or some of the Essence polishes).
Tip Top Nail Chic – Melting Marshmallow
The perfect easter-egg-pink, this polish applies like a dream (no streaks) and I can get away with 2 coats.
Essie – Van D’Go
I am all about peaches and corals this season so this shade is right up my alley. This is a beautiful creamy peach shade and I usually alternate between this one and Essie’s Haute As Hello Go for Spring. Easy to apply (not streaky at all) and lasts for days.
China Glaze – Lemon Fizz
Doesn’t the name of this polish just sound like Spring? It’s a gorgeous milky yellow shade, not too bright, and wears like a dream. I am really impressed with China Glaze polishes, the longevity of them is really amazing.
The swatches are in order as pictured above.
Good news – all of these polishes are available in South Africa. Yes, even the China Glaze one! Candice-Lee from In My Bag informed me via Instagram that China Glaze polishes are now available in SA at the Maskscara showroom in Parklands (Cape Town) and Gina (GBooth on Instagram) mentioned Miss Salon London in Morningside Shopping Centre also stock China Glaze polishes (and will order any shade they don’t have in stock, for you). With regards to the Suntra polish, I’ve had a look online and although I can’t see the polishes sold online, there is a Suntra website (same branding) and you might be able to purchase the polishes through them.
