Winter > Spring Transition | Nails


I've never really been a huge fan of pastels. I own a few shades of course, because it's nice to give it a try once in a while, but when it comes to nails, as with clothes, I like either nude shades or deeper colours. I find myself struggling to pretend that I'm ecstatic about spring trends. Every year it's the same story, all over again: flowers, pastel colours, 'brighter' shades. Alright, we get it. 


I wanted to do my own version of spring this time and feature what I would personally wear in transitioning months. The days are getting lighter and longer so I feel a little bit more cheerful hence I'm rocking something else other than black everywhere. 

Soigné is a brand I discovered a few months ago and since then my love affair with Essie and Sally Hansen has slightly gone downhill. I find myself wearing these same three shades week after week, completely neglecting the rest of my collection. I can't think of one thing that I dislike about these nail varnishes. From the consistency to the way the apply, they're the bomb. 

I only need one coat to get that opaque finish and I'm out the door. Most times I don't even bother using a base coat or a topcoat because they're glossy enough and stay on my nails for a good 5 days without chipping. Keep in mind I'm a hands-on kind of gal, always doing something or carrying things. 

The shades I have here are Crépuscule, Couvert and Feuillage. My personal favourite? 
I can't actually pick one, it depends on my mood. 
They're absolutely stunning and understated yet they make you look put together and chic. I think that these would be flattering on most people, especially if you have a warm complexion. Of course they have a much wider range of colours on their site so go check them out. And please, someone let me know in the comments if they're not a fan of pastels because right now I feel like I'm the only one!

  1. That's great if it only needs one coat! I agree with you, that the colours look very chic.

  2. These look like great shades - a bit classier than your average pastel. I've been somewhat stuck in an Essie rut myself, and although I adore the brand, I'm ready to try out some more ranges other than Nail Inc. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Essie is easily addictive but yeah, it's good to break out a little and try new things :) x

  3. The colours are lovely, I think slightly deeper colours like that look so much better than pastel colours. I actually have a blue shade from this brand which I got through a beauty box and I really like the way it applies x

  4. These shades are all gorgeous; I don't think I could pick a favourite. I love that you only need one coat as I hate waiting for my nails to dry lol X

  22. These are so pretty!
    I wouldn't say I mind pastels as such, but they always seem a bit half-hearted... I'd rather have a proper colour haha!
