Spring Inspired Nail Polish


I’ve never done a post like this before but I always see other people’s and they look like such fun so I decided to try it. I might have a small obsession with nail polish… unless it’s normal to have about 60 bottles?! I decided to have a look through and find some nail polish perfect for Spring. I know that some of you are going into Autumn (lucky) but here in the Southern Hemisphere we are heading into warmer weather.

I have a huge selection of pinks and purples so that’s what I chose to focus on. I have 3 different brands with a colour from each. Pinks and purples just seem so happy and they remind me of flowers – that’s what Spring is all about after all, isn’t it?



I started off with Essence. I love their nail polishes and they have so many different ranges. The ones I have chosen are from the gel range. The purple one is number 21 – A Whisper of Spring (how appropriate ;)) and the pink one is 05 – Sweet As Candy. You can have a look at all of the different colours in this range over here. I normally use two coats of this as I feel it is a bit too light otherwise.



I went into Foschini and they were having a beauty sale so I had a quick look and found quite a few colours that I needed! The two that I have chosen from the Colours Limited range are Vibrant (the purple one) and Vivid (the pink one). These are quite inexpensive as well. I usually only use one coat but you can use another if you feel you need it.

Umm, but isn’t this supposed to be a post about nail polish? Indeed. I am a huge fan and so I bought every member’s nail polish. The ones I have chosen are Popstar Purple (Louis’ one) and Fuschia Frenzy (Harry’s one.) These have really great coverage and one coat is more than enough to leave your nails looking beautiful!

Have you tried any of these before? What brand of nail polish is your favourite? Let me know in the comments.
