I almost completely forgo nail polish in the winter, or at least I did this most recent winter. I was so busy trying to soothe my dry, sensitive skin that painted nails were not happening. Now that it is warm, I almost always have my nails and toenails painted. I admit I typically only use reds, pinks, and pale pink/nude shades. These are my current favorites.
Treat Collection in Blushing Blooms – I cannot get enough of this polish. It’s what I’m wearing as I type this. Aside from the Treat polishes having fantastic flat, wide brushes, the formula is very good and the color is the most perfect glossy, creamy pink with a coral edge. While it seems to be available on other websites, I don’t see it on the Treat website. However, their Popsicle shade looks very similar.
Zoya in Carmen – This is my favorite red. Red nails, like red lips and black dresses, never go out of style. A solid red nail polish is always good to have on hand. This one is a cream based true medium red with glossy finish.
Treat Collection in Cotton Candy – I was afraid this would scream “pre-teen”, but it is the perfect pretty pink with a sophisticated twist. It has a touch of mauve that keeps the pink from being too bright. It’s seriously the most perfect dusty pink I have seen.
Lauren B Beauty in #IMSOLA – This was in one of my recent Petit Vour boxes and I love the shade. It’s a beautiful raspberry pink with blue undertones. So pretty on the toenails! I’ve yet to put it on my fingers, but I think it would look equally nice.
Zoya in Bela – The prettiest sheer pink. One coat looks like healthy, shiny bare nails, two coats is a very sheer pink, three coats is still sheer but more milky. Just gorgeous for times when you want low-maintenance nails that are still feminine and pretty.
Essie in Sunday Funday – Though Essie isn’t the cleanest brand, I admit I love this shade. While I believe they are 3-free, the downside is, I don’t think they are cruelty-free. This is actually a pretty old polish and I now do my best to buy only 5-free, cruelty-free brands. I would love to have an all-natural replacement for this shade, which is why I’m including it here. It’s a beautiful coral with subtle shimmer – any recommendations for a clean, cruelty-free dupe?
