Spring Colors Are Back !

DSC_0215.JPG

Spring is by far one of my favorite season because flower trees get their color back under the shining sun, but still, it doesn’t get too warm outside. In Paris, I appreciate the rare moments when I can sit down on a terrace and chill with my sunglasses. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to do that as much those past few days, since the weather is a little sad and the temperature closer of Fall. However it doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy this season ! On the contrary, my favorite way to forget this weird weather that I’ve been used my whole life (Parisian life tho) is by painting my nails.

Indeed I have this weird obsession to match my nails to the seasons. I guess there aren’t any official Spring colors but I always pick those I think could match. Don’t worry I’m not going crazy with pink which I think suits my nails better during Summer. Of course some colors could also be worn during other seasons, but when I go into my nail polish collection, the colors I’m showing you are those I instantly pick out.

My 10 Favorite Nailpolishes

Aloha beautiful people ! Only wished I was in Hawaii to escape this cold. I feel like I haven’t written anything for so long but it has only been 3 days.

One of my favorite beauty item is nail polish. I just have a thing for painting my nails with colors and it’s not because I’m a girl so I naturally have this “passion”. I think nail polish can really finish an outfit and embellish it. My favorites are more colorful. It makes your hands 10 times prettier and for some reasons it can even make you look put together, of course it’s only true if you know how to apply nail polish.

At the beginning I didn’t know how to apply nail polish, I didn’t know which color looked better with my skin tone and I was so lazy to take care of my nails with a base coat and a top coat. As a consequence my nail polish only lasted for 2-3 days and my nails were disgusting.

How I treat my nails 

Giiiiirls you know the STRUGGLE is real when it comes to nails ! There are no miracles and you’re not born with perfectly healthy nails so you have to take care of them. Now, we all know it takes a lot of time to have beautiful nails but honestly I’m just so proud and satisfied of myself when it’s done, when my nails are looking fabulous I feel more confident (is it weird ? it’s just nails) or at least I’m not ashamed to expose my hand (ok I’m a weirdo). I adopted this routine that I’m about to show you for almost 2 years now and it’s not miraculous but it works for me.

First thing first, if I have nailpolish on, I remove it with Maybelline Express Remover (acetone free). I’m pretty sure you all know what’s the deal. It’s so easy and fast. I absolutely adore this thing BUT whenever I have a strong nailpolish  (red or black nailpolish for example), it stains the sponge inside with the nailpolish color and the next time I use it, my nail+finger are colored. So instead, for a more colorful nailpolish  I prefer the old classic method with Gemey Maybelline Express Manicure Remover (acetone free + avocado extract) for brittle nails +  it also has hydrating properties (what else do you ask for?). After, I file my nails in a square shape because the base of my nails is really long, polish them and push the cuticles (I have so bad cuticles).
