Essie has long been one of our favorite nail polish lines, always on the cutting edge and releasing gorgeous new hues with each season. My fellow editor Jen goes gaga for every new line and we have some personal favorites of our own! Get amped for Spring with the pastel hues of these pretty polishes!

Dreary Winter days make us squirm in our office chairs and long for the sun to come out and the Spring flowers (like pretty tulips!) to pop up. We have awhile before that happens (Spring doesn’t officially start until March 20th – yikes), so in the meantime, we have some fantastic new nail polishes that you will simply adore.

The ‘It’ color this Spring will be this green hue, which is not quite a mint, but not quite a true green either. It’s fresh and screams Spring to me. Although it is much paler than the color of grass, it has a true feeling of Spring, reminiscent of freshly-cut grass and pastel Easter eggs you would hunt down.

Another standout in the new line is the peachy keen lacquer seen here:

Not only in this stunning peach appropriate for a bride, it is appropriate for work or play, a date or a play date with the kids. Simple and understated, this color is romantic and yet practical. These fabulous Essie hues will be hitting stores next month.

Another line I love is the Femme de Cirque Softshades line over at OPI, which includes shades like ‘Step Right Up’, ‘In the Spotlight Pink’, ‘So Many Clowns So Little Time’ and ‘I Juggle Men’. The colors are as cute as their circus-inspired names, from dainty pinks and lovely blushes to a nearly-perfect pinky-gray shade.

Another line we’re excited about? China Glaze’s new colors to celebrate The Hunger Games movie release! From earthy greens to glitter-flecked stunners, this line looks to be as terrific as we hope the film (based on the popular book series) will be. Check out the line-up over at the blog All Lacquered Up!

Until next time!
