Spring Nail Polish Picks - Pastels, Brights and Glitter!

Spring nails

I would love to say that Spring is here and last week I was actually thinking that as I sat in my garden without a jumper on. But this week we are somehow back to snow... it is all very odd! So sadly we can't be saying it is spring just yet. Maybe next week though! 

But in preparation for warmer weather that will hopefully last, I pulled out all my nail polishes and selected all my favourites that would be perfect for spring/summer. I know that some people love their pastel shades and some love wearing bright shades come sunny weather so I have selected a mix and oh, my favourite glitter nail polishes for spring as glitter is sun light is just lovely!

 Tips for finding cheap summer nail polishes...

Like that urge to go out and buy a new summer wardrobe I also get that feeling with nail polish. I may not have touched some shades for over a year and so it is always nice to pick up a few new fun shades. So here is how I do that without spending too much. 
I am a huge lover of mini nail polish sets from higher priced brands like OPI, Essie and China Glaze. I have never tried Essie before but the mini sets have really caught my eye with each set costing around £10-£14 for 4x5ml mini nail polishes. The two sets perfect for summer are - Essie Mini Brights Collection £10 Asos - here and Essie Mini Summer 2011 Collection £11.85 Look Fantastic - here. Both sets are full of super bright shades that will last you the summer and longer! 

Or if you prefer OPI then the OPI Nice Stems Mini Set can be found on Amazon here for only £9.50 which is a great set to go for it you like your pink shades! 

Also something else I like to do is save up a few No7 £5 vouchers when they are around (I'm sure they will make an appearance in May) and then use them against the No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colours here which normally cost £7 meaning with the vouchers they would only be £2! The nail polishes are really great quality and they have a good mix of pastel and bright shades - I'm thinking I will need to get Poolside Blue as soon as the vouchers come back! 

I hope this was helpful!
