My Top 5 Spring Nail Polishes
Revlon Scented Gumdrop is a creamy pale purple (lilac). The formula isn’t the worst, but it’s not that good either. It’s fairly sheer with one coat, and looks the best with three. It doesn’t dry quickly, so you can’t really hurry the following coats or it may smudge. Because I love the shade, I deal with it.. but it’s time consuming to apply.
Some other great shades that are similar to this are OPI Rumple’s Wiggin
, Nubar Lavender
, OPI Do You Lilac It
, Essence No More Drama
, Essie Lilacism
, Illamasqua Wink
, & China Glaze Light As Air

Essie Mint Candy Apple is a creamy pale/pastel, mint green. The formula is pretty good. It’s opaque and looks great with two coats. It applies very well & dries pretty quickly between coats.
Some other great shades similar to this are Revlon Minted, China Glaze Refresh Mint, Barry M Mint Green, Chanel Jade, Maybelline Express Finish in Minty & Sally Hansen X-Treme Wear in Mint Sorbet. (To view my past NOTD of this polish, click here
Love & Beauty Light Orange is a creamy light orange/vibrant peach. Love & Beauty Nail Polishes are sometimes a hit or miss, but this one has a great opaque, non-streaky formula.
Some other great shades similar to this are China Glaze Peachykeen & Illamasqua Purity.
Revlon Top Speed Cupid is a creamy vibrant pinked lilac. Formula is great, and is opaque with two coats. This is not only a favorite “Spring” shade, but it’s one of my absolute favorites.
As of right now, I don’t know any other shades that are very similar to this one. If you know of any dupes, let me know in the comments below! (To view my past NOTD of this polish, click here
Orly Cotton Candy is a creamy, warm toned baby pink. The formula is okay with this one, I’m sure mine is old now and needs replacing. It’s my favorite color in nail polish form – but I wish the staying power was a little better. It seems to peel pretty quickly.
Some similar shades are Revlon Perfect Pink and Sinful Colors Beautiful Girl, although they aren’t perfect dupes. (To view my past NOTD of this polish, click here
