My Nail Picks for Spring

I’m a self-declared nail polish addict: I literally repaint my nails at least twice a week because, honestly, I want to spread the love to every color that I have! Granted, this almost means I smudge my nails on the regs. Which is of course another excuse to repaint. So, without any more rambling, here are my top five picks for spring nail colors!

1. China Glaze Something Sweet


(Picture from All Lacquered Up) – Baby pinks like this color are always a good call in my opinion! I love this shade so much, it’s just very light and fresh looking and reminds me of bubblegum! I also really like glossy colors like this, and the payoff is great.

2. essie’s tart deco


This color came out a few years ago in a spring collection, and after hearing Tiffany D speak so highly of it, I was on the lookout for it! I found it at a Walgreen’s last summer and have loved it ever since, and it’s such a great spring color! It’s bright and creamy, and reminds me of flowers popping up. This color only takes two thin-ish coats to get an amazing color payoff and is one that I turn to all the time! (Photo from Temptalia)

3. OPI’s Malaga Wine


This is a different color than what you’d expect to see in the early spring, since it’s admittedly a pretty wintery color. But what makes me love this as a spring shade is the fact that it looks great no matter how pale or tan I am, and every shade in between. It’s also ideal for people who don’t feel comfortable putting crazy colors on their nails – it’s the perfect, classic deep red! (Photo from Google)

4. Revlon Sheer Nude Nail Enamel


I really love nude and beige nails, and this is actually one of the better ones I’ve found! It won’t be entirely opaque until you put on a few coats, but I love the sheer, barely there look of this shade. Nude polishes give a very pulled-together look that’s never overdone, and it goes with everything! (Image from Google)

5. essie’s Navigate Her


I had to. Mint is absolutely a color of the season, and a great spin off of that color is this grassy, pale green color! It’s not quite as pale as mint is, but it looks amazing and I’ve been lusting after it since I saw the debut of the collection! (As usual, it went on sale after Lent had started!) Navigate Her is a gorgeous color and I hope to get my hands on it soon! Plus, essie always puts adorable names on the colors in her collections! (Image from Google)

I hope y’all liked this post! Nail polish is seriously one of my biggest weaknesses! They’re so much fun and a great way to work with the colors of the season!

All my love,



  1. I love the 'something sweet'!! It reminds me of OPI's Sweetheart... and I don't blame you, I'm kind of a 'polish whore' myself ;)

    1. Baby pinks are so great! Hah I've only changed my polish twice this week and it feels like a really big step for me!
