Anyone else ready for spring? The weather has been pretty warm (like 80) most days but a few nice spring days. I feel we will go straight to summer heat and not really get to enjoy the spring weather. What is it like where you are?
I have been bringing out my spring colors when I actually paint my nails…I’m lazy! I hate not having them painted but I have been using a hardening formula. I do paint my own nails more than going to get them done mainly because it is cheaper.
As I’m sure you can tell I love O.P.I and Essie. I do have more Essie than O.P.I but I seem to like the colors more.
Starting with my O.P.I colors I put them next to each other so you could see there is a difference. It is a little hard to tell not just in pictures but in person as well.
This first color is “Alpine Snow” which is a a pale white color. I love it for spring and summer.
The second color is “Be There in a Prosecco” which is a pale nude. I will wear this color year round but find myself reaching for it more in spring.
I love the names that both companies come up with!
Moving on to Essie…
Yes I know there is a white and nude in this set too…but I swear they are different LOL
This is “cocktails & coconuts” it is a pale nude BUT it has some light sparkles in it! SEE it is different! haha This is another go to for spring and will continue into summer.
This is “now and zen” which is a pretty light mauve green color. I love it! I wear this year round too!
This is the other white in “Blanc” and it is more of a real white where the other is buildable. I like the O.P.I for a lighter pale look.
Lastly, of the Essie group is this “bikini so teeny” which is a pretty pale blue. This is my most go to spring color.
I wanted to throw in another color from a brand I don’t really buy often. I love this color but the polish bubbles (tiny bubbles when it is dry so annoying) which makes is peel in a day.
This is a pretty pale pink “Kiss the bride” I think this color looks so pretty with a tan! I just which I could figure out the formula. I know Essie and O.P.I have color options close to this that I will have to check in to. Does anyone else have this problem?
What polish do you love? Do you paint your own or go somewhere?
