5 spring pastel nail polishes

5 spring pastel nail polish review swatch photo
& Other Stories Moire Green: £5

Although spring still hasn't really sprung, Today I'm sharing some of my favourite spring pastel nail polish shades. I wanted to keep them all quite milky and pale rather than the brighter shades of pastel you can get. I'm thinking sheer polishes, soft creams and pop's of subtle colours.

Models Own Utopia is my favourite nail polish of all time. Hands down the nicest nail polish I've ever owned and I do have a fairly large collection of nail polishes. It's the perfect mix between grey and purple. I like to wear this all year round but I couldn't not include this in my spring pastel nail polish nail picks as I simply adore it. & Other Stories Moire Green is a soft pale mint green with a slight green shimmer going through it. I adore the brush is really wide and it glides over the nail with ease and you can cover the whole nail in one swipe. L'Oreal Color Riche in 202 Marie Antoinette is a build-able sheer milky pink that can be pretty and refined after one coat and opaque and pink in two. It applies wonderfully and for the price you cant go wrong. Barry M Blue Moon is a pretty pale blue shade with a slight shimmer going through it. Essie Limo-Scene is the sheerest of the five colours I've picked out here. It's creamy, sheer and a mix between pink and cream. It's very subtle but cant be built up to give a natural polished look to the nail.

  15. I can't wait until we see more sunshine! the weathers been pretty horrible and it has put me off wearing lots of pastel colours. Ive never realised models own had such a lovely colour 'utopia' although I've always had bad experience with models own's formulations :/ BarryM blue moon is gorgeous though~

    Thanks for sharing <3
    Have a lovely day

  25. I love all of these now. They would look really cute as a different colour on each nail. I worry that pastels will look weird against my pale skin though. We shall see. xxo

  30. I love Essie nail polish but I'm very curious about Barry M nail polish aswell. We don't have it over here but I really want to purchase some "gel nail polish" from Barry M on Asos. Do they chip easily? Great post!

  54. In person is Utopia similar to Chinchilly by Essie?

  55. strangely, i only own a few pastel colours even though they're my favourite type of nail polish! thanks for the review because i love all the colours (except maybe the essie one because it is so sheer) and i'm now tempted to start bulding up my pastel nail polish collection. i think they're perfect for the spring to summer transition so i'm really excited to give them a go!
