Top 5 Spring Nail Polishes


I absolutely love writing these posts because I get to have a good route through my polish stash, but at the same time I find it so difficult picking just five of them! This time round was even more difficult because it's Spring, and Spring means pastels, and I love pastels!

I've picked my Top 5 Spring nail polish shades and I think it's a pretty good bunch if I do say so myself; there's something for everyone. 

L-R: HJ Manicure 'Thunder Storm', Barry M 'Kiss Me Quick', OPI 'That's Hula-rious!',
Nella Milano 'Peach Schnapps', Barry M 'Elderberry'

Barry M - Elderberry
Dusty grey-blue shades are very popular right now. I wore this last week and got quite a few compliments on it. Plus, what's not to like about Barry M's Gellys?! You can see my original post on Elderberry here.

Nella Milano - Peach Schnapps
This is the neutral office-friendly shade of the collection, a beautiful peachy colour that I slowly fell in love with. You can read more about it here.

OPI - That's Hula-rious!
I blogged about this polish a few days ago (see the post here). I'm loving greens at the moment, it's quite a daring shade, but be brave and go for it - it's so refreshing!

Barry M - Kiss Me Quick
A very pretty shade from Barry M's Speedy Nail Paint collection. I wanted to include the whole collection in this post, they're all perfect for Spring and Summer! You can see my swatches here

HJ Manicure - Thunder Storm
This cool lilac shade is another office-appropriate polish and again is a popular shade right now. I love HJ Manicure formulas too. You can see the original blog post here.

Pastel Nail Art
What I love about pastel shades is how great they look with some simple white nail art. I like to pair pastels with white spots or white stripes, it's so easy to do and the look is so pretty. If you're interested in seeing some examples then you can see some of my designs here, here, here, and here (yes, I do love stripy nails!).

So, what do you think of my Top 5 Spring Nail Polishes? I'd love to know which is your favourite and also if you have any polishes that you love to wear in Spring - leave me a comment :)


  1. In the spring/summer I'm much more of a bright shade fan than a pastel fan. I love how pastels look in the bottles but am never quite sure once they're on my nails. I do like the look of that new OPI one though, even though it's definitely not the sort of shade I would usually go for x

    1. It's not a shade I'd go for usually either but I'm loving it. It's definitely in the running for my March Nail Polish of the Month :)

  2. You made fantastic choices. Love each of the colors, but my absolute favorite one is That's Hula-rious!

  3. Gorgeous shades - I'm loving pastels at the moment (I swear I resort to pastels every Spring!). Especially love the Barry M Kiss Me Quick. I think I'll be picking that up next time I'm in Superdrug! x

    1. Me too! I want to wear them all year round!

  4. Lovely little edit! My favourite is obviously the OPI because... I have mint problems.
    Although I'm actually trying to hold off on the Spring stuff as long as possible cos I love winter. And this week I'm really into grungey/nudey shades, but seriously I change my mind every week!

    1. Sorry for the super late reply! I was desperate to get the pastels out, I really don't enjoy darker shades. So excited for neons too!

  5. Love these choices! We found it so difficult not to include the entire Barry M Speedy collection in our Spring favourites as well, they're all so gorgeous! Love that OPI green, is it similar to Barry M's Pole Position? Emma & Jo.xx

  6. Wow all colors are my favorite i often like light color nail paints. All these nail polish are latest,,,,every girls want to buy it.
    Looking very lovely nails and so simple....peach and baby pink colors nail polish really awesome and beautiful.
