Guest Post: Winter to Spring Nail Polish Picks

I recently had the opportunity to guest post on Dungarees And Donuts! I thought I'd share the post I wrote for Jess with you all just as a bonus post for today.

Hello everyone! I'm Kayla from Microscope Beauty and am really excited to be guest posting for Jess! If the UK is anything like Michigan right now, it's downright cold. However spring is just around the corner! Here are a few polishes that will work well during that transitional period from winter to spring.

Essie's "Damsel in a Dress" ($8.50) is your classic deep plum shade that's perfect for the winter months, but as the weather gets warmer I still can see myself wearing it as it's just a lovely, attention-getting color. On the other end of the spectrum is Sally Hansen's "Jaded" ($6.49)*, your typical spring pastel shade. I for one love wearing colors like soft light blues in the winter as it makes me feel like a snow queen or one with the weather. It'll be a great color to welcome in warmer days. Rimmel's "Steel Grey" ($3.99) touches on the cooler tones of winter but also has lovely lilac notes that promise spring is just around the corner. This is my personal favorite of the bunch as it's an amazing formula with a nice brush. 

Next up is China Glaze's "Re-Fresh Mint" ($7.50). I'm a sucker for mint. I'd find a way to wear it all year round if I had to. It's on the cooler side which makes it a perfect contender for the winter months, but will transition easily into the early spring months. Finally, Essie's "Vested Interest" ($8.50) reminds me of denim shorts and showing some skin after a bundled up winter. It still has my go-to cool blue tone that I gravitate towards in the winter though. The perfect transition shades.

What nail polishes do you wear during the transition period from winter to spring?

Be sure to stop by my blog and say hi!
