My Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring (with swatches)

Picture of My Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring

Sun finally decided to show its face and after months and months of gray skies, there is nothing more I'd want than to embrace the brightness of Spring. First step, pick out my nail polishes. I wanted to do a Top 5 nail polishes post but my Spring collection wouldn't stop pouring out and I settled on Top 10.

Click read more to see what nail polishes are my favourite this season along with their swatches.

(L-R): Color Studio Pro Neon Elixir, Color Studio Pro Haute Wheels, Essence Special Effects Topper Circus Confetti, P2 Sand Style Seductive, L.A. Colors Lightning

Clockwise (starting from the index finger): Color Studio Pro Neon Elixir, Color Studio Pro Haute Wheels, Essence Special Effects Topper Circus Confetti, P2 Sand Style Seductive, L.A. Colors Lightning
Color Studio Pro Neon Elixir is in-theface, bright, neon yellow. It’s the most neon-ish yellow I have ever come across. It contrasts against my skin a lot, so I wear it as an accent nail or in some nail art. (full swatches here)

Color Studio Pro Haute Wheels is one of the best orange nail colours. It’s a perfect  bright orange which looks amazing. (full swatches here)

I use the Essence Special Effects Topper Circus Confetti on the tips or apply it over some light but bright nail colour. Here I have a full coat on Color Studio Haute Sea Green. It is a mix of chunky, multi-coloured, hex glitters.

P2 Sand Style Seductive is one of the many textured nail polishes you see coming out every day. And to be honest, I really like the gritty, sand effect. Seductive is a purple-red shade with gold glitters.

L.A. Colors Lightning is a perfect hot candy pink and looks uber, uber gorgeous. It would look so pretty on toe-nails with flip-flops or sandals.

Clockwise (starting from the index finger): NYX Mermaid Green, Astor Lagoon Lace, Astor Yellow Buttecup, LCN I Love Mint, Babor Flamingo
NYX Mermaid Green is a bright teal colour, and a tad less darker than it looks in the swatch. (fullswatches here)

Astor Lagoon Lace is a super pretty leafy-green colour. (full swatches here)

Astor Yellow Buttecup is a pastel yellow which I love wearing in this season. (full swatches here)

Who doesn’t love wearing mints in Spring? LCN I Love Mint is my favourite mint shade. (full swatches here)

Babor Flamingo is my favourite out of all ten which looks lost in the crowd above. I received this in my February Glossybox, and have never seen a colour this unique. It’s such a stunning coral with hints of pink and orange shimmers. It looks SO beautiful! The thumb swatches are not that clear and wearing colours of the same family in both the pictures, I know you guys won't be able to spot the difference. I have to do a full swatches post on this particular shade.

And since we are talking about Spring nail polishes, don't forget to enter my giveaway where I am giving a mini set of OPI Euro Centrale Collection, with four shades that perfectly fit this season.
