Sorry for being such a terrible blogger - this week is my last week of University so things have been a bit hectic! I promise I'll try harder!
Today I'm doing the first of three-part Spring Picks series, showing you my top 5 spring nail polishes. First though, a word of warning: you know why I never do NOTDS? Because I have awful nails! Seriously, they are so weak and fan-shaped. For my mum's wedding I think I'm going to have to get (short, rounded) acrylics, and maybe use falsies from now on. What do you think? Anyone got acrylics experience they can share?
Anyway, here are my picks, please excuse my nails!
|No7 Tangy; Revlon Sweet Tart; Models Own Lilac Dream; Barry M Blue Moon; Barry M Peach Melba|

|Barry M Peach Melba|
1. Barry M Blue Moon (£2.99) is a lovely pale, milky pastel blue. This was one of the easiest to apply of the nail polishes, although it takes three coats to become opaque.
2.Models Own Lilac Dream (£5) is one of my favourite polishes ever! Opaque in one or two coats, creamy, and dries quickly. Plus it's a lovely pastel lilac.
3. Revlon Sweet Tart (£3.45 on eBay) is a bright, fun true pink. I think it's the perfect pop of bright colour that would work well spring-to-summer. Also, Revlon polishes apply amazingly well, and they are so easy to get hold of at discount prices online.
4. No7 Tangy (£7) is a bright, red leaning hot orange. Again this would work as a spring-summer transitional colour, although I think oranges and corals are great for this spring. It dries fast and applies well, although the brush is too large for me - it involved a lot of cleanup!
5. Barry M Peach Melba (£2.99) is a lovely coral peach that I keep trying to work with because it applies on me so badly. It might just be a dud bottle, but mine is thick and gloopy. However, I really love this colour, so I might just add a few drops of thinner to this. And it's cheap so I don't mind!
Have you got any favourite polishes for spring to recommend? What do you think of these?
Keep an eye out for my next two instalments of Spring Picks, and also don't forget that you can now follow me on Facebook - I'm thinking of doing a little giveaway there soon, when I'm done with coursework, so keep checking!
