Favourite Nail Varnishes For Spring

Essie "Chubby Cheeks"
This is the most beautiful orangey colour which leans towards coral in some lights. I love wearing this on my nails and I would say looks equally amazing if you have short nails. This retails at £7.99 which I would personally say is pretty steep but I haven't found a dupe any cheaper (please comment if you know of one).

Barry M "Berry Ice Cream"
Last year I went out on a search for a lilac nail colour that would suffice my need for purple on my nails and I came across this little treasure. At £2.99 I think its a complete bargain and would definitely buy other colours in this range. The formula goes on well and I personally don't find it goes on streaky so that's a win for me.

Barry M "Shocking Pink"
It certainly is that! A bright fuchsia pink always has featured in my spring nail colour and this year will be no exception. As I have previously said I love the Barry M formulas so when I spotted this had to have it.

 Maybelline "Mint For Life"
I had been lusting after Essie 'mint candy apple' for a ridiculous amount of time and was on the verge of shelling out £7.99 when this little beauty caught my eye. A minty bluish, green I couldn't resist and since it was half the price of the Essie one I could see I was on to a winner. It lasts on my nails and it hasn't chipped in my experience.

Essie "472"
When I bought this t then got it home only to see that there wasn't a name on it only a code number and I couldn't remember the name so sad face. Anyways its so amazing I can forgive it not having its name on it. Its that colour which just makes your nails look healthy and fresh 'My nails but better' describes it perfectly. I would really recommend this if you don't like wearing bright or coloured nail varnishes all the time.

So guys that was my favourite nail varnishes to wear in spring please leave comments saying what your favourite ones are, or your favourite brands because I always love trying new things (and buying them).
