Pink Polish Picks for Spring…

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 1 - 2010

…and not a pastel among them!

Orly – Pixy Stix (£8.75) – a gorgeous guava pink creme from the limited edition Orly Sweet collection – I need to make this mine, it’s got that coral flair going on without edging too much towards orange.  I adore guava-y shades.

Bloom – Marilyn (£8) – Australian brand Bloom present us with an alternative to the typical girly pink.  Described as a cloud pink that is pure whimsy, I’m loving the more muted tones.  Available at Superdrug.

Rococo Nail Apparel – Hot Pants (£11.50) – A medium pink creme with enough depth to make a statement, always a spring/summer staple.

Leighton Denny – Plush Pink (£10) – A lovely looking pink that keeps a definite feminine edge without being too bright or sugary!

OPI – Italian Love Affair (£9.95) – A princess pink with pearl, as romantic as it’s name and an OPI classic.

Butter London – Twee (£10) – From the new limited edition Jelly collection, a sheer buildable pink jelly described as lipgloss for your nails!

Are you a fan of any of these?  I don’t think pinks get enough love… a good pink is a classic shade that will never let you down!

    Ooh I like the look of the Leighton Denny and the Rococo!

  2. Loving the idea behind the Butter London – curious if it actually achieves the glossy jelly nail look without being too sheer.

    lovely selection. i love everything but not the guava one (which is totally weird as guava is in my top 3 favourite fruit) and the opi. Why does the leighton denny need to be so expensive!

  5. Yay for no pastels! As much as I love the look of a mint green and pastel lilac, I’m kinda suffering from pastel overload these days XDv

    I love the Orly one! Also, your April Fools made me laugh!

  7. Ooooooh the Butter London one is gorgeous *adds it to ever expanding list of things to buy that I’ve seen on lipglossiping.com* – what’s a nail jelly?! Can you eat it? xxx
