Top 3 Nail Polishes for Spring

Sinful Colours Easy Going, Essie Go Ginza, Barry M Sugar Apple

I'm not one to only wear darker shades in the autumn/winter and lighter shades in the spring/summer, but I've been gravitating towards pastel shades recently, and they just so happen to be season appropriate. The shades above are the most pastel ones I own. The shades I considered pastel before these are no where near as light!

Sinful Colours Easy Going - £1.99 - review here
Easy Going is an off white pink, which looks clean and delicate on. It's beautiful on its own, but is also the perfect base for nail art. It takes three coats to become opaque, which isn't great, but I can deal with it.

Essie Go Ginza - £7.99 - review here
I used to stay far away from all purple shades, but in the last couple of years, I've come to love lilac and berry shades of polish. This is the lightest lilac I own, and I love it. Again, it's very clean. It takes two coats to become opaque, which is great for such a pastel shade.

Barry M Gelly Sugar Apple - £3.99 - review here
Sugar Apple is one of my most recent additions. Like I said in my review, it's a pastel, yet vibrant, aqua that can appear mint green in certain lights. It's thinner and streakier than the other Gelly polishes in the range, so takes 2-3 coats to become opaque. I was expecting better, to be honest, but love the colour so much that I'm willing to overlook this! 

What are your top nail polishes for spring?


  1. I love those colors-it would almost be cool to do a nail design with all three! I have an Essie that's really similar to that one, they make really good pastel shades!

  2. I absolutely love pastel shades in the spring especially mints and pale blues. That Essie one is absolutely gorgeous and as soon as I need a new lilac shade I'll be checking it out. xxx

  3. These are all very pretty shades. I'm more of a bright shades sort of person for spring/summer but I am starting to warm to pastels more now x

  7. You picked some great polishes, all perfect for spring! I love all three. I have such a huge collection of nail polish (kind of my guilty-shopping-pleasure) and I'm surprised I don't own any of these in your post! I especially would love to purchase that Barry M one. It's gorgeous!

    Much Love,
