Spring Polishes - Essie and Barry MSpring Polishes - Essie and Barry MSpring Polishes - Essie and Barry MSpring Polishes - Essie and Barry M

Hello Beauties! It’s the run up to Spring, the weather is cold but the flowers are starting to spring up, the sun is shining and the sky is a beautiful pastel blue.  This wonderful weather is the inspiration for today’s blog post and features some gorgeous polishes that are perfect for the Spring.

Barry M Lychee // Link

Lychee is part the of gelly range which I love because it is long lasting and leaves a beautiful shine on my nails. This is also a very neutral shade so it goes with a whole host of outfits for both the day and evening.  Personally, I find this to be the perfect nude shade as it isn’t too dark or light.

Essie Not Just a Pretty Face // Link

Out of the selection of polishes featured in the most this is definitely my most worn as it is a pretty pink pastel shade that goes with a lot of outfits.  I love that it gives your nails a subtle hint of colour without being too in your face.

Essie Go Ginza // Link

This was a shade from the Spring collection last year and it is a very pretty lilac shade which has pink undertones.  This polish looks lovely on its own or when teamed with a pretty accent nail and it is a colour I’m going to try and wear more this year.

Essie Bikini So Teeny // Link

I’ve never been a big fan of blue nail polishes but Bikini So Teeny is a really pretty blue that I added to my collection last year and love it.

Essie Maximillian Strasse Her // Link

This is an unusual shade but it makes a refreshing change from your typical pastel colours in Spring.  This is a pretty duck egg blue colour with a slight green/grey tone which looks very pretty on it’s own or when teamed with a silver glitter accent nail. I wore this combination to a wedding yesterday and lots of people commented on my nails. Maximillian Strasse Her was part of the Spring Collection last year.
