Pastel Polishes | SPRING

Spring is here guys! Spring is here!
It's finally arrived, and (apart from my seasonal allergies) I'm lovin' it!

I also am quite fond of a good pastel here and there,
so I thought, why not do a PASTEL POLISHES post for Spring!


Now, I'm most definitely not the first to write about pastel polishes, let's be honest ;)
and I probably won't be the last, but everyone's polish collections are completely different from one another,
so I thought why not share a bit of mine too! :)

The COLOURS
Clockwise from the top:
1. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear | Mint Sorbet • 2. Revlon | Blue Lagoon • 3. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear | Lacey Lilac • 4. Sally Hansen Smooth & Perfect | Sorbet • 5. OPI | Chic From Ears To Tail • 6. Essie | Bikini So Teeny


The SUPERLATIVES

Most Shimmer:
Revlon | Blue Lagoon

Most Opaque after One Coat:
Tie between both Sally Hansens Xtreme Wears | Mint Sorbet & Lacey Lilac

Subtlest Colour:
Sally Hansen Smooth & Perfect | Sorbet

Best Gloss without Top Coat:
OPI | Chic From Ears To Tail

Most Chip Resistant without Top Coat:
Essie | Bikini So Teeny

Most Expensive:
Essie | Bikini So Teeny

Least Expensive:
Tie between both Sally Hansens Xtreme Wears | Mint Sorbet & Lacey Lilac


I just  nail polish guys.
If anyone were to ask me if I collected anything,
I would say nail polish.
No doubt.

(My second ever post on this here blog was a nail polish review actually hah!
IN FACT, I posted it a year TO THE DAY - How crazy is that?...!)

I hope The SUPERLATIVES section helped, and that you found a new polish or two :)
What's your favourite PASTEL POLISH?
Thanks for reading!

  9. I absolutely adore the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Lacey Lilac, and it being the least expensive makes it even more appealing, haha! The Essie in Bikini So Teeny is also a must, pastel blue is always so cute! I am yet to try Essie, but I've heard such good things about it is it worth the extra spend?

    Love this post, I am always worried about buying nail polishes I always find I get disappointed with the wear of it!

    1. Oh I thought the same thing about Essie - they're quite a bit more than the SH ones, but the formula and quality really is SO good! Definitely go for it if ya can!! :) It took me awhile to cave and get my first Essie one too haha but now I have one, I'd get another one for sure! The Xtreme Wear ones are also really good, I'd be willing to pay a couple more dollars for them too, they're priced that well!
      Thanks for stoppin' by Rennie! :)

    1. Thanks girl! I like a nice blue polish too haha I seem to have a lot of blues, pinks, and purples - so many polishes out there hah!

  13. The Sally Hansen Xtreme wear formulas are AMAZING and so cheap!! I'm actually so impressed with them since they're practically opaque in one coat and dry so fast LIKE THIS IS MADNESS. That Sorbet colour...UGH SO PRETTY.

    I don't have a favourite pastel polish, but I generally tend to whip out my pale milky pinks such as Essie's Ballet Slippers and Fiji for spring!
