Spring is nearly here!

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 2 - 2010

Ok… so, it’s totally not but let’s not let reality get in the way of a a good Nail Polish Collection ogle.

Up & Away is China Glaze’s Spring offering…

I love the idea behind it, the carefree association of colourful balloons signalling the end of winter and the promise of summer.

Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of pastels… I am excited about a few of these though – Flyin’ High (the blue at the back), Something Sweet (the pale pink) and Happy Go Lucky (the bright yellow).  I would like to be drooling over more of these shades but I just don’t think they’d be the greatest match for my skintone.  Good for my purse, bad for my polish-loving heart.

Are you excited about this collection? Which shades are on your radar?

    I think I love the promo poster more than I will the actual polishes. A few look cute but I doubt I’ll spend my money on them – I don’t think they would suit me either. The orangy one is cute. xx

    The ones you like, are the ones I like but I’m not gonna break my neck to buy them. I agree with GoldenTouch about the collection poster standing out more than the actual polishes.

    I’ve been in love with all the swatches I’ve seen from this collection. Something about them calls to me. I think all the colors look lovely and I’m not looking forward to when they are released as I’m sure I’ll be spending way more than I need to on them lol.

    Haha, I keep telling myself spring is just round the corner, wishful thinking!
    I quite like the minty green at the front, not sure if it will suit but may just get away with it as spring is just around the corner. ;)

    Ahhh, spring, i remember that…..

    Lol! I like the look of the hot pink at the back, the corally colour and the mint green, that colour was really in fashion when i was about 17! Time flies….

    Gaahh *drool* been gagging for this collection to come out for ages now! I’m dying for the pastels, particularly Lemon Fizz, Peachy Keen, Something Sweet and Light as Air. I’m also considering Refresh Mint but I’m not sure how similar it’s gonna be to Barry M Mint Green. But definitely gonna haul up a few of the pastels!

    • @Leanne – hehe thought you’d be interested! Don’t think I’d like the peach on my skintone… yellows will be interesting… the formula is usually crappy though

    Haha, emphasis on nearly! It’s still snowing over here… dunno whether to choose the :) or the :(…. :P !

    Haha those polishes look well nice! The bluey green one intrigues me… the others seem a bit too light for my skin. Great nah? If my nail is too light then my hands look darkER, haha. :P
