Highstreet_Spring_Nail_Polishes_2014 

Finally, finally I have sat down to talk pastel nails! Spring is definitely here with the mix of sunny and rainy days we seem to be having and pastel polishes are adorning my nails the majority of the time. 
  
As I love accessible products and my budget nail polishes I thought I would make this little spring nail polishes edit strictly high street only. You can of course get all these nail polishes online as well.  

Here are 10 of my very favourite nail polishes that I feel are perfect for spring!

Nudes & Pinks 

From nail swatches top left; clockwise - 
Sinful Colors in Easy Going (£1.99 - Boots here), Rimmel Space Dust in Aurora (£3.99 - ASOS here or Boots), Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Lychee (£3.99 - ASOS here or Boots), Revlon in Popular (try eBay), Models Own Fruit Pastel in Strawberry Tart (£5.00 - MO site here or Boots).

I personally love neutral nails whether it's a glossy nude or a pale pink. My go-to nude come spring (well any time for that matter) is Barry M Lychee - a perfect creamy nude with a high gloss finish that will suit any skin tone. Though for sunnier days you can't go wrong with Sinful Colors Easy Going - the most perfect easy to apply light pink-y toned nude that is surprisingly very opaque. For more glitzy nails, or the most perfect accent nail for nude/pink nails, there is Rimmel Aurora... just wow! The nail swatch doesn't show it off to it's full potential so make sure to have a read of my full post here if you like the look of it - trust me it's an amazing nail polish. 

Onto more pink-y/lilac shades now with a milky lilac glitter from Revlon called Popular... which I sadly realised when I came to writing this post is now discontinued and therefore hard to get hold of. However never fear I do have a just-as-pretty alternative for you with Revlon Girly (£6.49 - Superdrug here) which may actually be prettier! Last but not least a true pastel pink and a scented one at that with Models Own Strawberry Tart - just the most perfect cream baby pink shade ever.

Blues, Greens... and a Yellow
 
From nail swatches top left; clockwise - 
W7 in Sheer Blue (£3.35 - Amazon here), Essie in Bikini So Teeny (£7.99 - Superdrug here), NYC Expert Last in Mint Macaroon (£2.49 - Superdrug here), Revlon Colorstay in Buttercup (£7.99 - Superdrug here), Models Own Speckled Egg in Magpie (£5.00 - MO site here or Boots).

For warmer more summer feeling days in spring I love nothing more than a bright pastel on my nails. A beautiful soft pastel blue can be found with W7 Sheer Blue, this is just about opaque on the nails but looks so light... hard to explain but I don't have a pastel shade similar to it. However my most worn blue has to be Essie Bikini So Teeny - a perfect shade for pale or tanned skin and can be worn right in to summer. 

For a more chic and muted pastel I like to go for NYC Mint Macaroon, actually NYC have quite a few muted pastels in the Expert Last range that are worth checking out. But for when the sun is really shining Revlon Buttercup is straight on my nails - sunshine in a bottle with this sherbet lemon pastel that actually makes me happy when looking at my nails. Last but not least Models Own Magpie, one of my favourite shades at the moment that is sure to get quite a few compliments and rightly so as it's such a unique nail polish.
 
 Hope you have enjoyed my Spring nail polish picks! 

Fee xo.
