Hi beauties! Today I have the quintessential spring time nail look to show you 🙂
I have only one Nars nail polish in my collection and it’s a creamy light pink (not quite pastel, a touch darker) called Trouville, which is a quaint little French coastal town (Google told me that lol). The pink can be a little sheer, so two coats is a must. On some nails where I had been a little messy (painting your nails in a rush never ends well lol) I painted on three coats in order to even out any ‘mistakes’. Luckily the nail polish formula is quite thin so you won’t end up with a gluggy mess.
The yellow nail polish called Loop the Loop is from Ciate, and it is the most gorgeous vibrant pastel yellow (or is that an oxymoron?). It isn’t streaky at all and also isn’t to thick or to runny. I reviewed Loop the Loop a little while ago as I received it in a set together with some nail caviars (check out that review here). Together, the pink and yellow make the perfect combination – perfect for sunny spring days!
Both nail polishes are high quality and last about a week on the nail (but they must be paired with a good base and top coat!). Nars Trouville isn’t a colour I would usually go for, but this salmon-y pink is quite lovely and I like it so much more than I thought I would (I think I originally bought it because it was on sale so I figured it would be a good way to try Nars nail polish!). I looove Ciate nail polishes – they call them ‘paint pots’ which is cute! All the Ciate colours I have tried so far have been outstanding (I’ve also tried a pastel blue called ferris wheel which I still need to review and a bright mid-toned blue called skinny jeans). Neither nail polish is cheap but they are very lovely to use. You can find Ciate paint pots at Kit Cosmetics and Mecca Cosmetica for $18.00. I bought my Nars nail polish from Kiss and Makeup NY however, because they release nail colours seasonly, they can be a little hard to get a hold of once a given season has passed. I always expect a decent nail polish to last a week on my nails and these do the job well 🙂
