Last week Montreal got a really great glimpse into what spring has to offer. The warmer weather melted most of the snow and suddenly, layers were coming off, boots we replaced with spring shoes and the sunglasses were out! Then a storm came and dropped 20 cm of snow on the city. So now we are back to winter. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t caught spring fever! Now I’m all about bright colours. Case in point, my new polishes!
I’m so ready to ditch the dark reds and deep plums for these bright hues! I am loving all the pastel shades I’m seeing on the runways and in the glossy pages of magazines, so needless to say I was quite influenced.
First up, OPI in Petal Faster Suzi from the 2012 Holland Collection! I’m not usually a fan of bright pink polishes, but after Googling it to find swatches, I just couldn’t resist. It’s a beautiful lavender pink shade with tiny silver and pink flecks.
Second, Essie’s A Crewed Interest from the Navigate Her Collection. I didn’t have anything like this in my collection. A beautiful creamy peachy nude shade. It’s light enough to be super versatile, yet different enough to be eye catching. This has quickly found it’s place as my favourite polish.
Last but not least, Essie’s Peach Daiquiri. This is not a new shade, in fact it’s part of Essies’s permanent collection. I’ve had my eye on it for so long, but didn’t see the point in purchasing it in the dead of winter. I have a few shades of coral in my collection, however this shade has ore fushia in it. So bright, so summer!
What are your favourite spring polishes?
