I am a nail polish junkie and I’m proud of it. I recently downsized my collection and I am very content with the color selection I have. I wanted to share my Top 5 nail polishes for Spring and give a high end and low end option. Be sure to check out my nail polish collection, closet downsize, and vanity posts for my nail polish journey.
1. Ocean Blue
I love a dark blue for spring. It just makes my skin tone pop. I usually go for pink, but I wanted to switch things up. I’ll probably lean more so towards the pink in the summer. As for the three options I chose, it all started with The Sephora By OPI, ‘Slushied’ from the Glee Collection. Two similar colors I have in my collection are: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear, ‘Blue Me Away‘ ($2.99) and Zoya ‘Phoebe'(Matte) from the MOD Collection. ($9).
One of the most infamous signature colors from Essie is ‘Turquoise & Caicos‘. ($8.50). The name gives away the underlying color, turquoise, but ultimately I think it’s categorized more as a teal. Sephora by OPI also has a very similar color called ‘Read My Palm’. Although they are similar as you can see from the picture the Sephora polish is a tad bit darker. This color is hard to come by but there are many other options similar online. This particular color is available in a gel polish.
I love a great yellow polish and I usually have about 3 or 4 in my collection and I wear them throughout football season (Steelers; Black & Yellow), BUT there’s nothing like a nice yellow on the nails for Spring. What I love about these two yellows is that the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in ‘Mellow Yellow‘ ($2.99) gives that hint of yellow that I love. The Zoya color ‘Pippa‘ ($9) gives me more pigmentation, but it’s not dark enough to be a mustard yellow. Love the different tones of both polishes.
If you couldn’t tell my now I am a HUGE fan of the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear line. I own quite a few of purple polishes, but this one is my ultimate favorite. This polish is called, ‘Lacey Lilac‘ ($2.99) and it surely lives up to its name. This color will work great for any and every skin tone. Essie has great lilac options as well with a price tag of $8.50 a bottle: ‘Bond With Whomever’, ‘St. Lucia Lilac’, and ‘Lilacism.’
This is by far my favorite OPI nail polish to date. It was in the Serena Glam Slam Collection and I have been holding on to it and making sure it didn’t dry out since it’s such a beautiful color. I absolutely love it. The only dupe currently available that comes the closest to this color is Zoya’s ‘Faye’ ($9).
