Spring/Summer Nail Polish Picks

Sunday, March 30, 2014

I've mentioned before that I'm not able to wear nail polish whilst the school year is on as a Massage Therapy student - BUT I only have three more weeks of school then I'm on summer break for four months and my nails will be painted a new shade weekly! 4/5 shades are by Essie and the 5th shade is by L'Oreal - and I strongly recommend these nail polish formulas!

I've picked my 5 favourite spring/summer shades and I can't wait until I'm able to use them. I love wearing a pale pink on my tips during the spring and summer because it makes you look so tan! This shade is Fiji by Essie. To the left of Fiji is a stunning orange-coral shade which is named Tart Deco. It's such a stunning pop of orange to wear on your nails and really brightens up my mood! 

Next is one of my most worn nail polishes which is Turquoise & Caicos, I'm almost at that dreaded point where the brush can't reach the middle of the bottle! I find I can't always suit the popular Mint Candy Apple shade so this is my turquoise shade of choice. It's darker the MCA and is just so stunning. *Heart Eyed Emoji*  It looks lovely on your hands and toes and really just screams spring/summer to me!

The last Essie polish is a shade I always have on my toes, this is the shade Watermelon. It is such a stunning mixture of a hot pink and a creamy red. I realized that in the photo it isn't the easiest to see the true colour but I really recommend this polish for year round! Whenever I'm able to paint my nails I go straight for this beautiful pop of colour. I also wore this on Valentine's Day and my boyfriend commented that it's such a "pretty perfect pink". (cute)

Lastly, the one and only L'Oreal Colour Riche shade here is in the shade Tangerine Crush. The formula of these polishes are absolutely amazing! They're so pigmented and have such a lovely shiney gel like finish. I love shades that make me look tanner then I really am (confessions of a true pale girl...) and this shade really does do that. In fact...that majority of these shades make you look tan!

What polishes are you reaching for this Spring and Summer?
