Cover your nails with Spring polishes ...

Spring always means we get to bring out pretty pastels and pinky/coral nail colours, 2014 you have not failed us.  

Here's my take on which polishes will dazzle your nails and get everyone talking this Spring.

Now for a list of the polishes below, we'll start from the pinky and work up to the mumma thumb...

Butter London, Fiver (£14):  I actually got this polish last year and mentioned it in a review here.  However, my love for it has been completely reborn this Spring.  It is a beautiful pastel mint green which guaranteed will get everyone talking.   It does need two coats to get a non-streaky opaque effect, but the staying power is fantastic. Butter Londn polishes used to be  difficult to hunt down in the UK, however they are now being spotted more and more, thank goodness.  The cost is quite pricey, but that is because Butter London pride themselves of producing nail polishes free from toxins and harmful ingredients.

Essie, Cute As A Button (£9.95):  A stunning Spring/Summer coral which looks super with a bit of colour on your skin, whether natural or slightly product enhanced ...!  Extremely bold, with a creamy texture, it glides on to your nails with the help of one of the best brushes around.  Quick drying with an subtle natural shine, oh I just want to eat it!

Ciaté, Loop the Loop (£9.00):  A stunning pastel yellow, which makes you want to do a sun dance!  Again, as with Butter London's Fiver, it does need two coats as the first can be rather streaky.  The best way to apply is to be gentle with the brush on your nails and do the minimal amount of strokes you can to cover the nail.  Make sure you wait for the first layer to completely dry before applying the second, you'll drag the first coat otherwise and then get angry at yourself...  Beautiful shade and as you may know already, Ciaté are one of my favourite nail polish brands out there.

Ciaté, Pepperminty (£9.00): Quite simply as the name says a pepperminty green colour, darker than Fiver, as the pigmentation holds more blues and greens.  Probably my favourite shade out of all of these polishes, even the brushes are cleverly crafted, not to allow too much product to collect too much, allowing an even distribution.  This small bottle I got in one of the Christmas advent calendars from Ciaté and when I've used this up, the full size bottle shall be purchased fo shizzle.

 Essie, Play Date (£9.95): A stunning lilac shade which in my opinion trumps a lot of other plum toned polishes on the market.  Even if you had your eyes shut, with thanks to the magical brush again, the application would be perfect!  The pigmentation is prominent but not enough to make it look garish or overpowering.   

So there we have it cheekies, my take on some brilliant Spring shades which leave us itching for Summer!
