The Chronicles of a Nail Girl: Spring has Sprung!

As we all know (well, I hope we all know!), I'm a bit of a sucker when it comes to nail polish. I'll hold my hand up now and say I haven't got a crazy amount compared to some I've seen, but then I feel like I have above the 'average' amount. I don't know what it is, but I'm instantly attracted to nail polish and the bright colours. Some colours I swoon over and feel like I could eat them they are that pretty (you know how you get that sometimes with a certain scent, well I'm the same, but with colours as well.. weirdo I hear you say. Yep, ok. I'm a weirdo).

I've wanted to do this for so long now, but just never got round to it, but this afternoon, I spent an hour 'categorising' my polishes into colours and photographing them. This actually helped me realise which colours I definitely don't need any more of (I'm looking at you, baby pinks!), and also colours that I was lacking and could do with more of (Oh yes, always room for more).

I'm going to divide this 'nail chapter' over 11 posts, each featuring a different colour category, cos that er, kinda made sense.

Today I am going to showcare my favourite Spring polishes. I have been in the garden today for the first time this year, doing boring housey garden stuff, and because the sun has been shining brightly all day, I thought now is a perfect time.

Apologies for the lighting. Even thought it was a bright day, some of these still don't look their true colours.
As you will notice, I've got quite a few different shades of pinks going on there. Lets face it, what is spring/summer without pink?! Its one of those colours that seems to go with almost every outfit, so I like how wearable it is. As you can see, I'm also a sucker for BarryM. Cheap yet cheerful, and honestly pretty good quality.
From L-R
Barry M - Pink Flamingo (I remember when this was all the craze a couple of years ago, it was forever sold out in the shops!).
Barry M Pure Turquoise & Strawberry Icecream.
Barry M Gelly Hi Shines in Greenberry, Blueberry, Dragonfruit? (I only have 'dragon' at the bottom of the bottle and I was informed it was wrong!), and Prickly Pear.
Leighton Denny 'Babydoll', No 7 'Tangy' - This is the only orange I own, and I've only ever worn it on my nails once, it tends to go on my toenails instead, however I am adament I'm going to wear this more this year!
OPI 'If you moust, you moust'.
I love the Gelly paints, I do have another colour that didn't make it in this collection, simply because I felt like it was quite an autumnal colour. See if you can spy it in the next few posts!

  1. I'd like to believe that all girls are suckers for nail polishes. The spring polishes you listed are very pretty. Loving the fresh colors. I don't see mint in the mix though. I think mint looks great for spring.
