Essie // Spring Favourites

You guys know I’m a massive fan of Essie nail polishes. They’re my go to brand and I’m always trying out new shades from the range.

I feel nail colour, like outfits, definitely moves with the season. In Autumn it’s all about the deep purples and dark reds, Winter is grey, silver and navy with a splash of red sparkle for Christmas, Summer is the bright pinks and neon oranges, and Spring? Well, Spring is obviously pastels. Duuuur.

But wait. I like a nude nail just as much as the next girl, but I feel always sticking to pastels at this time of year can be a bit yawn. This year I’ve seen a lot more movement to brighter colours this season and this is the perfect opportunity to experiment with a bolder nail colour that kind of misses out on a obvious ‘this is the time to wear it’ period throughout the year.


I’ve chosen 4 gorgeous shades which have got Spring written allllllll over them and I know I’ll be reaching for over the next few months.

They are a gorgeous lime Green called More the Merrier, a bold Blue/Lilac called Boxer Shorts, a soft Grey called Cocktail Bling and finally a beautiful ballet Pink called Fiji.


Why not make a statement this Spring and introduce more colour into your wardrobe?

Nail colour can be a great way to experiment with colour, without having to invest in floral trousers like the rest of the internet.


What are your go to colours during Spring?
