Topic Tuesday: Favourite Speckled Polishes

I don't have a lot of speckled finishes, I think my favourite two would be from the Models Own Speckled Egg collection. The green one Magpie and the blue one Duck.

Nails: Top 5 Spring Polishes 2023

Today is the Spring equinox, and so I'm sharing my Spring 2023 nail polish picks.

I have done this type of post before which you can see 2022 here2021 here2020 here2019 here2018 here2017 here2015 here and 2014 here.

You don't need these specific polishes, but these are ones that I want to reach for during Spring. I seem to have gone for a mix of muted bright polishes this year.

Lemon Sorbet is a cream, light yellow polish, nice for spring nails.

Minty Fresh, has a white crelly base with blue metallic flakes. I've not worn this enough, it is light enough to be typically spring like but has the metallic flakes in to keep it from being plain.

Peony is new to my collection for 2023, it is a cream finish purple toned pink. Slightly darker than shown in the swatch.

Magpie a green crelly base with black matte glitter. The specific colour of this is reminiscent of actual magpie eggs.

Serendipity is described as a iridescent blue shimmer, its light enough not to be a bold blue more typical of summer. There is some purple in there too which elevates the polish from a plain shimmer.

Topic Tuesday: Favourite Polish So Far

Up until June 2022 I have 28 new polishes. I think the polish I am happiest about would be Models Own Magpie, purely because it stopped being sold in 2014 and was the last in the Speckled Egg collection which I needed to finish the collection.
