We've had approximately 5 hours of glorious sunshine and I am convinced that we're in the midst of spring but after a lot more rain than sun I'm starting to think that I've been a bit too enthusiastic. I might not be able to ditch the tights just yet but I can bring a bit of Spring into my life with sorbet nails. So I've had a good rummage through my stash and have found five pastels that will be getting a lot of air time!
Nails Inc Notting Hill Carnival
Notting Hill Carnival is a really nice soft yellow which is eye catching and bright enough without being a scary eye searingly neon shade. I always find yellows are hard to apply and you need quite a few coats to get it opaque but if you get it right it looks amazing. I can see this shade adding a bit of colour to a monochrome outfit or I always love how yellow looks against grey.
Models Own Cornflower Gleam
This is a shade from the HyperGel collection so it has a high shine finish which personally I really like. Everytime I've worn this shade someone has commented on it and it is a unique lavendery blue hybrid which looks really pretty on.
Essie A Crewed Interest
I am so in love with this shade! A Crewed Interest is definitely one of my most reached for nail varnishes, it's the most beautiful nudey peach and goes with anything. It's also a really nice base for glitter topcoats and if you need to look grown up and sophisticated for any reason this is the colour you need in your life!
Nails Inc Royal Botanical Gardens
You can't let spring pass you by without getting your mint green nails on! This shade is fresh, bright and perfect for those days when the sunshine comes out, even if you've still got your jeans on this really brightens things up.
Ciate Sugar Plum
I don't think I could have thought up a more fitting name for this shade! If you're not looking to make a massive impact with your nails and just want a pretty shade then Sugar Plum is your nail varnish, it's a gorgeous pale lilac that will look even better when I've got some colour to my pasty hands!
