Now that Spring is upon us, I decided to dig out my pastel and brights nail collection and try out a new colour. Papaya is a gorgeous light coral shade that reminds me of spring. Coral is a colour I love, but not on me. I think it washes out my skin tone, especially in lipstick and blusher format. I've not fake tanned for a while but with a tan, I think this would look even prettier.

Barry M are definitely my favourite nail polish brand, in particular the Gelly range, they have all the colours I could possibly want for around £2.99-£3.99. Their brushes are a little thinner than I prefer but they're easy to work with on my narrow fingers. The range dries reasonably quickly and are of a good consistency, usually taking around 2-3 coats to get the desired opaque shade in the bottle. It chipped with a top coat on after around 3 days and is always easy to remove.

I'm hoping this colour inspires the sun to return soon too, it teased us for a couple of days and then rain returned. I've been looking at the matte range and want to try some new shades, but I have way too many nail polishes already. They're on ASOS though, plus I have a premier account...

What is your favourite spring shade? Have you tried the Barry M Gelly range?

  1. I’m not into Crest that much, my teeth got too sensitive after
    trying it. Stella white on the other hand is a brand I can recommend for us
    with sensitive teeth, really great! :)

  2. This color of nail polish looks amazing! It's so bright and happy and really looks like Spring...
