Essie and OPI Nail Polish Collections for Spring 2012

I’ve already shown you most of the Winter/Holiday 2011 nail polish collections here and here.

And today we have  a preview of two gorgeous collections for Spring 2012. If I am not a huge fan of pastel makeup on myself (which is a huge trend for Spring 2012), I do like some pastel nail polishes.

And I really like this Essie nail polish collection. The pastel lime green is really pretty, I’ll have to get it.

  • navigate her, a light, bright green
  • a crewed interest, a luminous peach shade
  • to buy or not to buy, a lavender with shimmer
  • tour de finance, a fuschia with shimmer
  • olé caliente, a red-orange with pink undertone
  • orange, it’s obvious, orange, a bright orange

And here is also a Holland inspired collection from OPI.

Thanks to Michelle from Beauty Editor (a must-read blog, by the way) for the promo photos. The lovely Mercedez has swatches of the whole OPI collection, so you can check them out here.

Although I love dark nail polishes I am kind of excited for Spring shades, I think I should get some nude and pastel shades for my collection.

No7 Floral Brights Makeup Collection for Spring 2012

I really loved Spring 2011 makeup collection by N07  and I have bought several items so I was looking forward to this Spring’s makeup collection. And I like it, too. The collection was created by Lisa Eldridge and is called Floral Brights.

Encapsulating the eclectic and diverse nature of modern British beauty, there’s a perfect look for every woman – a refresh of the neutral look with the latest nude hues, and a wear-it-if-you-dare, bold  irtation with colour – to inspire all your Ta Dah moments this spring.”

This collection includes:

No7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter 10g, £13.00

  • The peach undertones add warmth while the perfectly partnered pink shimmer gives a youthful glow.

 No7 Vital Brightening Eye Palette 4g, £13.00

  • Three beige and brown shades and soft pink – and all-important yellow for the inner corners of the eye.

No7 Vital Brights Cream Blush 2g, £10.00. Light-wear and soft

Paul & Joe Makeup Collection for Spring 2012. Everything Cats Inspired

Yes, it is too early to talk about Spring but this particular collection made my heart go faster so I just have to share!

I am a huge fan of cats and I was very excited about the Paul & Joe cat lipsticks but this time the collection is even more amazing if that is even possible!

But I am done talking, just look at the photos.

Cat inspired lipsticks. How adorable are those paws prints?!
