Beauty Buys: Pastel Nail Polishes

I think I’ll always have a weakness for pretty nail polishes. I mentioned that I did a bit of shopping a couple weekends ago and I picked up three new nail colors. I’m in love with them all!

I went to Topshop specifically to pick up the color on the left (Blue Rinse). I first saw it on Anna’s instagram and it immediately shot to the top of my wish list. Blue is my favorite color and this shade just looked so pretty. This was my first time really looking at the Topshop nail polishes and they actually have a very nice color range. Since there was a 2/$15 deal, I thought, “Why not grab another color?!” I already own a few mint green nail polishes, but that won’t stop me from buying more. This one from Topshop is called Boy Next Door and it has a little more blue in it than my other mint nail colors (you can see how it looks on me here).

I finally visited & Other Stories in Soho and thought that the clothes were cute, if a bit overpriced. They have a nice section of the store filled with skincare and beauty bits, so I enjoyed browsing that. I was really excited when I saw this pale yellow nail polish because I’ve been looking for a color like this for a while. I hope that when I apply it on my nails, the color is just as pretty as it is in the bottle.

    I have a few pastel shades of nail polish but I definitely want to get a few more (I have no blues or greens, and that needs to change!).

    I confess, I have no purchased a nail polish in years (gasp!). I tend to stick to old favorites, though– nude or pale pink for hands, and red for toes.

    I should definitely branch out and wear something fun for summer, though. I’ve always thought it’s the best time to wear a bold nail color.
