Spring is finally coming around, which means it's time to bust out some spring appropriate nail polishes and spruce up those digits. Me and nail polish have never been the best of friends. I've always been too lazy to bother painting twice weekly, but it's been a beauty resolution of mine to slap on the lacquer more often. You may have seen my boots haul a couple weeks back featuring some pastel hues, so here in one handy post is my edit of the best spring themed lacquers.

THE ONE THATS ALMOST WHITE BUT NOT QUITE // The L'oreal color riche nail polish in lemon meringue is the perfect alternative to a harsh white polish. It still has that milkiness to it, but the pastel lemon tinge makes it much more wearable and complimenting. The colour applies opaque in two coats which is impressive for such a light shade, and the wear time is pretty good too! Definitely a new favourite.

THE MINT // Essie mint candy apple is a much loved polish in the blogging world, but only became mine a couple of weeks ago. Its a lovely pastel minty blue shade which is perfect for the spring. Its bright but still goes with anything i decide to wear. As with all essie polishes in the diffusion line, it has a fabulous wide brush.

THE LILAC ALTERNATIVE // Although lilacs are pretty, they just aren't for me. I don't think they really suit my skin tone. Essie Splash of grenadine is a vibrant purple pink shade which is completely different to any other colour i've seen, and it really stands out on the nails. It dries quite glossy which is lovely too. A must have for spring in my eyes.

THE BRIGHT ONE // Essie peach daiquiri is really not a peach at all, but a vibrant coral pink. It's not quite neon but it does really stand out on the nails. I'm not a huge fan of pinks but the coral tone makes it much more to my tastes. It's one i'll be whacking out when its sunny again.

THE ONES THAT ARE A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT // Everyone tends to stick to the typical pastels when it comes to spring, but for me i like to branch out a bit more. Still keeping with a pastel theme, but straying from the typical pink, purple etc. Topshop venus fly trap is a favourite of mine, as its a gorgeous pastel true green colour, no yellow or blue tones in sight. It's unique but surprisingly easy to wear, not clashing with any clothes i decide to wear. I wasn't too impressed with the formula of previous topshop polishes i've tried, but this one is spot on. The other colour i've been loving and is currently adorning my tips as i type is Essie tart deco. This is peachy colour in the bottle, but comes out a lot more coral and less milky on me, which i actually quite like. It's bright but still has that white undertone which makes it have a similar look to a pastel. Coral is really my favourite colour so of course i love this!

If you have any spring nail polish favourites, let me know as i'm definitely getting in to the lacquer.
