Hello everyone, and welcome! I was recently going through my nail polish collection and getting rid of the brands that test on animals, and throwing out old items. I discovered that most of my collection was already cruelty free, and very appropriate for Spring. I polled you on Twitter asking if you’d like a Spring polish guide, and there was some interest, so I’m giving that to you today!
I was really frustrated to find that a lot of the shades I own aren’t available anymore, but I hope you find the colors helpful, at least. These are the polishes I will be wearing this Spring!
One of my favorite year-round finishes for polish are the metals, and I always have a good gold polish on hand. They elongate the fingers, and flatter every skin type.
KL Polish: Das Espensive – This color was limited edition, but she has a ton of new spring colors to choose from
Trust Fund Beauty: Champagne Socialite – this shade is available for purchase. You can find my full review here.
Wet n ‘Wild/Fergie – This was another limited edition color, but still a staple
Mauve, Lilac, Lavender
Toned down purples are another favorite of mine. They look flattering on all skin colors and they’re very Spring-appropriate.
Sally Girl – This brand has been discontinued, and will soon be replaced with a new line at Sally Beauty, but I included it anyway since it goes with the color scheme.
Wet n’ Wild: Bite the Bullet – I bought this one before they changed the packaging, but this color can still be found in stores in their square bottles.
Ciate London: Spinning Teacup (PP150) – this shade is so beautiful and long-wearing, and you can feel good about wearing it because this vegan polish has no camphor, toluene, DHP, or formaldhyde resin.
Other than the purples, anything pastel is perfect for Spring!
Julep: Isabella Soho Glam – this is currently out of stock on their site, but I believe it should be back soon.
Milani: Mint Crush – one of my first ever Milani polishes was this shade. I love it!
Kiss: Sakura – this light pink is my all time favorite nail color, but something about wearing it in the Spring to match the blossoms is so sweet.
A Few More
Finally, there are a few more shades I found that I really enjoy for spring.
Sally Girl – again, these polishes have been discontinued, but the berry pink and bold teal are really beautiful colors to show off during springtime.
China Glaze: Platinum Silver (77501) – this is one of the best polish brands, in my opinion, so I was really happy to find that they are cruelty free. You can still purchase this shade anywhere China Glaze is sold.
I hope this list helped you out a little. Check back soon for my summer colors! I love to break out the fluorescent pinks and corals for that time of year – what will you be wearing?! I love to hear from you!
