MY SPRING 2013 PICKS: Nail Polish!

We have officially sprung into March a few days ago (a week ago or so?)! I think Spring and Summer are the favourtie seasons of many! To us Malaysians, it doesn’t really matter though. We have Summer 24/7 but the trends do change I guess.
Anyway, Spring’s here! It’s time to burst out the colours of the rainbow! Today I’m posting about my Top Picks for Spring 2013! Basically, all the nail polishes are going to be super bright and fun! (I wear colourful nail polishes all year round)
There’s a good mix of colours and brands (mostly Asian brands though). I will leave all the links to where you can buy them (if I can find it!) So now lets go!
I would just like to firstly apologise for the grainy pictures because the lighting was terrible. I tried my best to fix it, but my Photoshop skills really fail me.
1. Etude House Matte Baby Pink
(3 coats)
This is from Etude House and is super affordable. I believe this was RM9.90 and it comes in a variety of shades. I really like this one though: it’s a baby pink and the matte finish is beautiful! This shade of pink is a universal shade and can make you look tanner. I love pink: Lips, nails.. everything!
If you live outside Asia, you can buy it here: Ebay
If you live in Asia, you can buy it at any Etude House stores!
2. Elianto Kissy Pink
(3 coats)
This was RM5.50 (as with all Elianto nail polishes). This is a cream + jelly = crelly finish nail polish. It applies very sheer (as with all jelly polishes) but it gives a really interesting twist to the classic pink polish. I love Elianto nail polishes and have a bunch of them. I have a post on My Elianto Nail Polish Collection.

3. Essie Made To Honor
(2 coats)
This is Essie’s Made to Honor. I won this from a giveaway about a year ago. The little bump on the swatch is because I didn’t swipe the brush well and there was a dried bit on it. This has been my go-to base colour when I’m doing French Manicures. It is absolutely beautiful and since I have a yellow undertone, this doesn’t make my fingers look washed out. Nudes are fit for all year round!

4. SkinFood Pedicure Sparkle
(2 coats)
This is SkinFood’s pedicure sparkle. No idea what this shade is (I can’t read Korean T.T). This is a 1-coater but I added another coat to maximise the sparkle. The picture does not do this polish justice. It’s a REALLY REALLY sparkly blue/green nail polish. It looks like a diamond + mermaid’s tail captured in a bottle colour. SO beautiful and bright! (This does contain Formaldehyde though :/ That’s the downside! AHHH!)
5. China Glaze in For Audrey
(2 coats)
This is China Glaze’s For Audrey. This is also a 1-coater but the swatch shows 2 coats. This is a best-selling polish from CG. It’s a creamy turquoise-teal (i can never differentiate the two?) colour. It’s so pretty! It’s like the perfect Spring/Summer colour and I absolutely adore it!! This is my first ever polish from China Glaze and I LOVE the formula of this one! It’s very creamy and easy to apply.

6. Color Club Blue Ming
(3 coats)
This is Color Club’s Blue Ming. My sister got this in her Birchbox and she sent it to me. It’s a bright mint green colour. This is one of those colours that are so bright that it makes you look tanner. I love the colour and the finish but I don’t like the formula.

7. TONYMOLY GS08
(3 coats)
This is TONYMOLY’s GS08. It’s those type of “jelly-sandwich” polishes. It has a very sheer baby blue base with blue, pink multi-sized glitter. I like to wear this both alone, and on top of any blue base. Eventhough it requires multiple coats, the coats dry very quickly so I don’t mind. This is the closest I can get to an Indie nail polish from Etsy, so.. 🙁
8. Elianto S01
(2 coats)
This is Elianto’s S01. This is also a 1 coater but for the swatch I used 2 coats. It’s a bright.. and when I say bright, I mean BRIGHT yellow colour. It’s a creamy finish and it reminds me of the Sun. Definitely a great colour for Spring/Summer!

9. Etude House Glitter Topcoat
This is an Etude House glitter topcoat (again, I can’t read Korean so I don’t know what shade this is.) It contains black, white and pink multi-sized & multi-shaped glitter. It’s definitely one of those fun ones that can spice up any of the colours that you’re already bored of. This is one of my favourite polishes as of right now.
My Favourite Combo for Spring/Summer!: 
This is Etude House’s Glitter Topcoat topped over Etude House’s Matte Pink. It’s so beautiful and it’s such a pretty combo! It’s so fun and bright yet wearable! I’m SO in love with this!
