Spring Nail Trends At Walgreens!

Every spring, for Memorial Weekend, my best friends and I head to the beach for a week. Expect my Instagram to have beach pics really soon! As our friendships have evolved through moving away, breakups, marriages, and having children, it's the one tradition we keep and it means so much. It gives us a chance to reconnect, and it's always like no time has passed. But before I leave, there's a massive shopping trip. You can't wear the same bathing suits as last year, right? And of course, there's a trip to Walgreens for makeup and to find the perfect nail color. I've been on the hunt for just the right color, I mean colors for spring, because we all know I cannot choose just one!

#Walgreensbeauty is my go-to for beauty, and they have Revlon, one of my fave brands!

Walgreens has a huge variety of the most gorgeous shades of nail polishes for spring. You've gotta stop by and see what they've got! They have everything you need for the perfect pedi and mani, including brands Essie and Revlon, and can be purchased online or in store. So let's see what I picked up for me and my friends:



First up is Revlon--they have irresistible nail shades that nail all the trends, including some classic colors. I know not all of my friends are into wild colors like I am, like my friend Elizabeth--she will love the red Fearless for her toes this spring. Revlon's polishes feature a Chip Defiant™ formula. And Candace will use Bubbly--a gorgeously smooth bubble gum pink color!

Next up is the new neon collection from Essie--does this make you think spring and summer or what? Walgreens has hundreds of Essie nail shades--you'll be sure to find something that you'll love! I can't decide which one I want to wear first. Or which one my friends will take borrow first!





Look at these beautiful colors! Which one is your fave? These dry to a cross between a shiny and a satin finish (but closer to a soft satin), and these swatches are without flash, one coat and in natural light. And of course, I had to thrown in some easy nail art:













I love doing an accent nail with a fun design like one of these. My friend Lety is the same way! Using a toothpick, I made dots in each color. That's it! These make me think of sprinkles on ice cream or cupcakes.

And for the second, I used cotton swabs dipped in each color and dabbed them on. I added a top coat to help blur/blend the colors together. Easy!
What colors are you loving for spring?
