In my recent blog post about how to cheer yourself up on a budget, I mentioned that I like to pamper myself a bit when I’m feeling down, and that one of the ways I like to do that is by painting my nails and toenails.
That got me thinking about how it’s now the right time of year to swap out my nail polishes from winter-y colors to more springlike colors! This is one of my favorite parts of having such distinct seasons here in Edmonton- rotating my clothing, swapping out shoes, and embracing whatever season it is here.
Since I don’t have a ton of money to invest into super chic accessories and clothing, one of the ways I make sure I look polished at work is through always trying to be well groomed. My hair of late has been messing this up for me, as well as my allergies making my eyes too mad for much makeup, but this makes a huge difference when you’re trying to look maybe a bit more “expensive” (read: refined) than you can actually afford to be.
I thought I would compile a shortlist of my five most favored nail polishes for spring. One of these colors is from a new OPI collection, but the rest are all permanent as far as I know.
- OPI Got Myself into a Jam-balaya
- Essie Go Ginza
- Essie Madison Ave-hue
- Morgan Taylor Water Baby
- Essie Eternal Optimist
What are your favorite spring nail polishes?
