Pastel Polishes

I am definitely a neutral nails kind of person. So, if I want a pop of colour you better believe it'll be a pastel. With Spring coming up, the season of pastels, I thought I would round up my favourite pale polishes for you! These are pretty much baby pinks and blues as those are the colours I wear the most. But if you know of any good pale purples that aren't greigy (I have plenty) and have a good formula, let me know!

If you couldn't tell, my favourite nail polish formula is Essie. And I own three alarmingly similar blues. I also have three others in my drawer. They're different, I swear. Find Me An Oasis is a cool icy blue. This is one of my favourite polishes ever. The formula is quite thin and requires three coats, but I personally prefer thin polishes as I can get a really clean cuticle line. This kind of shade is very brightening, and I think looks really elegant on the nails. Borrowed and Blue is a warmer sky blue, but is quite similar to Find Me An Oasis. This formula is a little bit thicker and usually requires only two coats. Saltwater Happy is a beautiful powdery blue that is also super elegant. I always get tons of compliments on this colour and I really love it. I'm very sad to say that Formula X polishes have been discontinued, as I really really loved them. This shade is Reckless, and is fairly similar to Essie's Bikini So Teeny. Its a lovely cornflower blue and I'll be devastated when this one runs out!

LVX recently sent me their S/S17 collection and I was psyched to see two pastels. Seychelle* is a stunning pale turquoise blue. You can see that this one has a bit more green in it versus the cooler blues, but once on the nails it looks like a pale blue. Onto the pinks! Coquillage* is the perfect pastel pink. I was honestly blown away by the formula of both of these. They applied incredibly easily in just two coats, dried quickly, and lasted really really well. LVX polishes are also vegan and 7 Toxin Free! Essie's Fiji is a cult classic pale pink, but honestly the formula is a bitch and I much prefer the LVX shade, just thought I would mention as it is a cheaper alternative! I also have to mention Glossier's #glossierpink which was limited edition. But, while I do love this polish, it really isn't Glossier pink on me. It's sort of a brighter, medium pink. Segway into telling you that my perfect Glossier pink is the Barry M Pink Lemonade Gel Hi Shine. I like this one the most because it really is almost a neutral, and the formula of these are a dream. There are some other really beautiful pastels in this range, like Huckleberry and Rosehip, but I sadly had to throw them away as they were tooooo old!

Do you guys love pastel polishes? What are your favourites?
