Springtime nails featuring Essie's Figi

I don't know about you ladies, but I am just about ready for spring! I'm ready to to trade in my winter boots for sun dresses, shorts and cute strappy sandals. Unfortunately we still have a couple of months before the springtime shines it's lovely light upon us, but that doesn't mean we can't bring the springtime early- on our nails.

The fall and winter are all about the deep, dark and rich tones (which I love), but around this time of year, when I'm starting to really feel the winter blues, I like to lighten things up on my nails. Today I opted for Essie's Figi. It is a very light and opaque pink shade and is perfect for Easter and almost reminds me of a delicious Cadbury mini egg (YUM!!). It may not be everyone's taste because it can almost appear white-ish if two or three coats are applied.

Before I apply any nail polish I like to moisturize my skin and cuticles. I often use olive oil, but today I opted for OPI's Avoplex moisturizer, which I received in an OPI set a couple Christmases ago. After applying two coats of Figi I finished it off with a clear top coat to give it extra shine and lasting protection from chipping.

What's your favourite nail colour to help welcome spring? Comment below!

Lots of love,
