Springtime is upon us and nothing says spring like soft pastel nails. As you can see from the picture above, I either go for light neutral pinks or bright pastel pink, magenta, and orange. These are the shades that I’ve curated for my spring nail edit this year and I’m obsessed. I prefer using the Essie Gel Couture polished because I’ve found that they last longer. Some of these I’ve had longer, which is why only 3 of them are from the gel couture line.

In the spring, I also like to stay on theme with my hand cream. I’ve been loving this Rose Oil hand cream I randomly found at Trader Joe’s. I love that it’s not greasy and absorbs quickly, leaving my manicure moisturized.
