A Paris Sparkles Spring Mani

Hi all! Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate and Happy Sunday to those of you who don't.

A while back the owner of the Etsy shop Paris Sparkles Facebook page posted that anyone who posted about her business on their Facebook page would receive a free polish of their choosing from her shop. I chose Celery Stalker.
Celery Stalker has a light green base, almost mint green, but a bit more yellow. It has a faint shimmer running throughout and a great combination of glitter (from dark blue, to pink, to magenta) in all different sizes. The glitter came out of the bottle easily in all different combos and I didn't have to fish for it at all. I did 2 coats and there is no VNL. My only recommendation is to wait for the polish to dry between coats; otherwise it can be a draggy, streaky mess. But if you wait between coats it is a dream to apply.

I thought this was another absolutely perfect shade for Spring; it reminds me of grass and flowers. 

You can purchase this or any of her other pretty polishes on her Etsy shop here. They sell for $8/bottle and there are quite a few that I would love to try. I hope you all have had a great weekend!

A Revlon Spring Manicure

Hi all! I was trying to figure out what the heck to put on my nails that was Spring-like (without the hassle of trying to do something artistic) when I came across this gem on my nail wheels: Revlon Wintermint. It is from the Parfumerie line of scented polishes that was released a while back. I knew I had to have this one because I fell in love with Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream when I first saw it and had heard that this was a pretty close dupe to it. I have a hard time paying $18 for a nail polish and this is a much less expensive version of it. Even though it's called Wintermint it feels very Springy to me.

It kinda reminds me of Easter eggs and Spring flowers and I really love it. It smells like mint but the scent was so light that I barely noticed it.

It's finally starting to feel like Spring here. There is some sun interspersed with the rain and the tulips and daffodils are popping up everywhere along with the cherry blossoms. Has Spring sprung where you live?
