top 5 spring nail polishes


Seeing as it's freezing cold outside and everybody's wishing for double-digit degrees, I felt the need to show my top 5 nail polishes for Spring. I adore Spring for a number of reasons..

1. It's perfectly acceptable to wear clothes and nail polishes of pastel colours
2. My birthday is in Spring
3. Summer is soon after!

Why I love them 
(in no particular order)

1. Rimmel London - Golden Totem 
I got this nail polish in last June at Graduate Fashion Week in Earls Court - a £3 goody bag got me a copy of Company Magazine, lip balm, flavoured water, facial mask/cream and this baby. Golden Totem is a beautiful colour, a metallic bronze that elongates my fingers and nails. The bottle states it can last up to 10 days, and although I've never tried to last that long the nail polish doesn't chip or show signs of wear easily. It suits most outfits and just looks really pretty - highly reccomended by me! Saying this, I'm not sure if this was limited edition or something, because I've never seen it in Boots/Superdrug :(
actually I lie - I googled it and found it here for £2.99

2. LA Colours - Pink Pearl
This was one of the first LA colours nail polishes I have ever purchased - and  now I have around 7 of them. Although the bottle itself shows wear, the performance of the polish is amazing! The colour is very sheer though, and unfortunately you need a good 4 coats and a top coat for it to look its best but in my opinion it's worth it - it doesn't take long for each coat to dry so ultimately it doesn't take that long to apply. It comes out a gorgeous pearly pinky colour, really reminiscent of Spring. Cost me a bargainous 99p at Beauty Base in Westfields.

3. LA Colours - Energy Source
A more recent LA Colours purchase, Energy Source can appear to be a bit iffy for some - 'a white nailpolish...really?' some may think, but this polish is really good! It doesn't look like tacky tip-ex has been forced onto your nails, it looks quite pretty and smooth. It gives the illusion of slightly more tanned fingers (ahaha) which may be appealing to some? (myself included). The main thing I adore about this nail polish is that it suits literally everything and is light and floaty for Spring.

4. Barry M - Berry Ice Cream
I had been searching for a lilac nail polish for so long, and thankfully my best friend bought me this for Christmas. It's a really beautiful colour, very spring-esque and pretty and I always get compliments on it when I wear it. The application is similar to all of the Barry M nail paint range, quite thick and only 2 coats are needed. Berry Ice Cream costs a mere £3 and can be purchased at Boots/Superdrug (and online stores such as their website and ASOS).

5.Models Own - Jade Stone
I've written about Jade Stone before, and it has a well-deserved place for my spring favourites. The colour is beautiful, application is creamy and easy with the well-designed brush. Always feel cute and Springy (haha) when I wear it and it is the perfect way to jazz up a plain outfit.
