Favorite Summer Nail Polishes

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today I’m talking about some of my favorite nail polishes for this upcoming season, summer! I absolutely love painting my nails during the summer since they pop out so well against a tan and can really pull together a look. I also have been painting my nails much more because I’m trying to kick the nasty habit of nail biting, and when my nails are painted I never want to mess up the polish.

I just to have a massive collection of makeup (pretty heavily drugstore brands) and I have massively decluttered the summer before my senior year of college and throughout this past year. Check out which products I’ve kept in my collection and why I’ve minimized my collection below! Continue reading

Spring Nail Polish

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite nail polishes for the springtime and really just some of my go-to shades for when it gets warmer. Check out what my favorite nail polishes are for this time of year below!

My first few springtime shades are all in the pink family, something about springtime just screams pastels and florals and these colors just pop into my mind during this time of year! My first polish is Essie’s Ballet Slippers, I love having a really light pink during the spring because it matches pretty much everything, and this shade is a plus for me because it is like my nails but better. Next up is Essie’s Eternal Optimist, which is a slightly deeper toned pink but still just as pastel in nature. I love it for days that I want something a little bit darker but still in mind with the spring theme. Lastly, I grabbed Essie’s Tart Deco which is a gorgeous pastel orange shade. I love this for the transition time between spring and summer when you want something a tad brighter but still in line with the spring vibe!

In my non-pink shades, my first choice is Essie’s Mojito Madness. I love wearing green nails and this is probably my favorite shade of green. It’s on the pastel side but it still is passable for a more summery look too. Plus who doesn’t want to be dreaming of mojitos in the gorgeous spring weather?! Next up is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow. I just picked up this particular nail polish today but I felt as though I needed a pretty bright yellow for this time of year. I don’t know what else screams spring other than a pastel yellow, and it’s only a plus for me that it’s on the brighter side of pastel. Last up is Essie’s Mint Candy Apple, which we all know that it was all the rage a few years back. I love mint shades in general, but during the spring it just screams to be worn! This gorgeous shade looks great just as a spring tan is beginning to blossom!

That’s some of the shades I love for the springtime, but what are some of your favorite springtime nail polishes? Let me know in the comments below! See you next time in my next post!

Spring Makeup Tutorial

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog, today’s post is going to be my take on a Spring makeup tutorial! When I think spring makeup, I think of fresh skin, more warm and neutral eyes, and a nude lip. I’m never really one for bright lips, but when I do go for them I try to use them more in the summer. For this makeup I really wanted to realize my idea of spring makeup and make it really wearable and fun to do. Check out my spring makeup tutorial below!
