Spring Time Manicure


One thing I love about the Spring season is when nail polish companies start coming out with fun new pastel polishes. I love a great bright varnish, but there's something about those pastels that is so perfect for when the weather starts heating up & the sun comes out to play. OPI recently came out with their Ballet collection which is a compilation of (mostly) pale pinks and purples to capture the essence of a ballerina. Likewise, the Nicki Minaj collection and Holland collection have both been very popular and full of punchy hues that will add a nice splash of colour to your wardrobe without having to pay the big bucks for a new outfit.

What to look for:
Mint green/softer olive tones, pale pink,
periwinkle blue (China Glaze has a gorgeous periwinkle colour),
light purple, pinkish nudes, and soft rose tones.

I have always been a fan of having a statement finger with polish, too. This is especially fun when it is done with glitter, a matte top coat or something extra sparkly - like a metallic. Not only do you get your dose of spring time pastels, but you kill two birds with one stone with a shot of bling!

Now, I leave you with some wise words from my poodle friend. Lunch, or OPI collection?
