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!
