Over the past year or two I’ve developed a rather large nail polish collection, and you will be hard pressed to find me with unpainted nails.
Smith & Cult- porn-a-thon: This brand is a recent discovery but it is truly amazing! Great consistency, color pay off, and color selection! Porn-a-thon is a perfect peach. Not too orange but not too light either. I love the bottle design (and their over the top names), my only complaint is the brush being a little short.
OPI- A Great Opera-tunity: I got this in the OPI Venice mini set last year, but you can still get full sizes. This color is the best of peach and pink. Perfect color for fingers and toes (and makes you look extra tan!)
Orly- Cotton Candy: Another perfect blend of peachy-pink but this one is brighter.
Wet and Wild- Pardon my Peach: Another recent discovery is Wet ’n Wild’s new 1 step gel polishes. They are surprisingly great quality for less than $3! This is a true peach color that is just bright enough but not neon-ish.
OPI- Barefoot in Barcelona: I love this color on my toes year round! This color is a more nude version of those peachy pinks. It has more of a brown undertone, but still perfect for Spring!
Sinful Colors (Kylie collection)- Koral Riff: This is probably the least expensive nail polish you can find. Normally they’re $1.99 but of course the Kylie collection is $2.99. Still, the quality is there and the colors are awesome. This shade is true coral. It has the slightest blue shift but you really have to look to see it.
Orly- Cake Pop: Very very light, cool-toned pink/lavender shade. I only like this one for my fingers since it almost looks white. But a very classy pastel shade for spring.
Ulta- Lilac-ing you: Ulta brand has hidden gems and their nail polish is one of them! Color is self explanatory; pale lavender/lilac shade.
Essie- Cocktail Bling: I got this in a set this past Christmas, but full size is still available. For those of you who aren’t fans of pink or peach, this is a pale, grey-toned blue. Good for year round wear, but also fits in the spring pastel category.
Whim- Lemon Drop: When else would you were a yellow polish but in Spring! This yellow is just the right shade, and I think many different people can wear this. It’s a pale yellow and isn’t bright.
OPI- Small + Cute = <3 Hello Kitty collection: I recently discovered the Hello Kitty polishes and purchased a few. I am in love with this shade! It’s a true light pink that is slightly bright. I got so many compliments when I wore this shade!
