Pastel Nails for Spring

Pastel nails are in this Spring. With that in mind I decided to pick up an Easter inspired nail polish.

I settled on Collection 2000 Hot Looks in Button Moon (33). It’s a very pretty pastel aqua colour. I’ve never tried any of Collection 2000 nail polishes before. They are very cheap (under €3) and are often on special in Boots.

I always buy the same shades of nail polish, the classic shades really.  So trying a pastel green/blue is quite daring for me.

What do I think?

The colour is very pretty and I like that it’s a bit different. My nails remind me that Winter in over and Spring is here. Catching a glimpse of my nails actually made me feel quite cheery.

The application wasn’t exactly plain sailing. The consistency of the polish is quite thick. The bristles are not very smooth so it was difficult to get the polish evenly down to the cuticle. It dries very fast, which is usually a good thing but the polish dried a little streaky. After the first coat it looked awful. The second coat saved the day but it’s a long way from a flawless finish. The bottle is also very small and because of the consistency I can’t imagine I will get very many applications out of it.

Bottom line, they are cheap and pretty. They are great for a seasonal polish change and a bit of colour injection. I wouldn’t rely on this polish though as the finish is a little hit and miss. They are also as bit thick and gloopy. Barry M and Rimmel polishes are much nicer. This polish isn’t amazing but it makes me smile!

Have you tried any of the Collection  2000 nail polishes? What do you think of them? What polish will you be wearing for Spring?
