6 Pastel Nail Polishes to Take Your Blues Away!

For the last month or so, Iv been under the weather a lot . (Food Poisoning, viral, and throat infection in that order). But nothing cheers you up like some pretty pastels on your nails does it?? Btw- searching for a nice peachy pastel color- like ermm…not orange but a true peach. Something like NYC Peaches n Cream you can see here. Any suggestions?? If i found one like that, I swear I would live in it ! So purrty ! Till then however these 6 are keeping me company

Starting from top left going clockwise, the names which are colored can be clicked to go to individual reviews

1. OPI Sweetheart: This is to date, my favourite OPI . It is a very very pale, milky pink but it is extremely smooth and one of those rare pastel shades that really flatter darker skintones. I actually bought this after watching some Youtube girls recommend it – best buy ! (Do note: you need ATLEAST 3 coats , sometimes 4 to get that color ..the pigmentation is a bit weak on this one)

2.OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender: Lucky lucky me for discovering lucky lucky lavender ! Pretty, cool toned pastel purple and just the kind of purple I was looking for at the time!

3. Maybelline Color Show Blackcurrant Pop: If you want pastel on a budget then some of the Maybelline Colorshow ones are pretty fun! This one called Blackcurrant Pop  is a more bluish purple or lavender as compared to the OPI one but pretty nonetheless.

4.OPI Chapel of love Nail Polish: One of my first OPI’s and a pretty pink coral with gold reflects. While you cant really classify this as pastel, this is definitely one of my fav Spring time Nail Polishes

5.Illamasqua  Nomad Nail Polish: A Jade green, not only is this color so unique, it wears for ages and ages !! Ofcourse its a major dent on the pocket and Illamasqua is not available in India, but the color is a definite keeper

6. Maybelline Colorshow Nail Polish in Blueberry Ice : An icy, pastel blue that is easy on the pocket and on the eyes!

What are you fav spring polishes? And recommend me a peach someone?

Lavander is my favorite and always go for mild one rather than going colorful

oh btw, for peach try colorshow’s coral craze – it’s a bit more orangey than a classic peach but it’s really lovely :) avon has a peach nail polish too but idk if they still have that, they’ve revamped the shades :)

I’ve always wanted to try OPI’s Sweetheart! And the lilac Colorshow one looks beautiful.

Maybelline’s Constant Candy has been my go to pastel lately. It’s really flattering on warmer skin tones.

Try Lakme Color Crush no. 19. It looks very slightly pinkish, but a double coat gives this lovely peach color! Also has a slight hint of shimmer which is hardly visible when applied but gives a nice sheen! :)
