Absolutely Shore

Essie Absolutely Shore £8.50 & Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme £5.99

Despite having a multitude of neon bright nail colours in my collection, I've been wearing nothing but nudes and pastels recently. Essie Topless and Barefoot and Ballet Slippers have litterally been the only things gracing my nails for the last few months which is rare for me seeing as I barely ever take a colour off only to put it on again!

I mentioned Absolutley Shore in a wishlist a few weeks ago and I'd shamelessly bought it pretty much minutes after that was posted. Its a pale pastel green, a lot less blue and in your face than Mint Candy Apple which was my first Essie purchase years ago. I think this one's going to be my go to for spring nails.

The one problem I have with Essie is that the thin brushes make it hard to get the colours on quickly and evenly. Thankfully though, Boots and Superdrug have just started selling a small collection of Essie's best sellers with a much thicker and easier to use brush. I might have to re-purchase Mint Candy Apple because of this as it's one of my all time favourites, but unfortunately Absolutely Shore hasn't been released in stores as of yet!

Working on a beauty counter, I was my hands a lot and my cuticles get pretty dry and ragged so recently I've making an effort to take better care of them. I've been smothering on Burt's Bees Cuticle Creme, a product that I've already fallen in love with despite only buying it less than a week ago. Its the perfect not-too-waxy balm that moisturises but doesn't leave a lot of residue and it smells amazing. Just like fresh lemons, a scent which I think I'm going to be very into this summer. I've already been eyeing up The Body Shop's new Sweet Lemon Beautifying Oil and we all know I love a good oil product!

This has been a bit of a mixed post but let me know what your favourite Spring nail colours are!
