Favourite shades to style out the winter-spring transition

In our humble opinion, it's never too early to get into the spring mood! Yes, we adore the deep, velvety, delicious hues of winter, but there’s nothing quite like spring’s light, bright pastels or floral hues to lift morale. And, while we may have to wait a few weeks to truly embrace the warmer weather, this selection of nude, pastel and spirited shades will cure any lingering seasonal blues. It’s time to meet the top ten breathable, vegan, award-winning polishes we’ve picked to steer our style through the winter-spring transition.

Lighten up

Springtime is made for subtle pastel and floral hues, but pale, sophisticated neutrals are perfect for early transition days. What’s more, such understated polishes seriously enhance your natural nail colour for a fresh, radiantly healthy look. Our number one choice is Almond, a delicate beige, almost white polish - elegant, low maintenance and especially flattering when paired with daytime or work wear. Prefer a flush of colour? Then opt for more muted nude tones like Simplicity, our creamier beige, or Au Naturel, our sublime semi-sheer polish which beautifully balances beige and blush tones. Perhaps surprisingly, grey continues to be an on-trend tone as spring approaches. For a twist on conventional cool hues, try our grey-nude, Mindful Grey, for a tranquil, yet far from dull, sophisticated neutral nail.

Nature knows best

As we begin honing our style towards spring, there’s nothing quite like channelling new life in bloom. Soft, light and creamy, Lait Fraise is a sweet pale pastel pink that brings cheer to even the cloudiest of winter-spring transition days. Lovers of periwinkle or pastel purple hues will adore Serendipity. A muted lilac with a soft, shiny finish, this polish makes for a refreshing twist on more conventional spring neutrals, adding an instantly brightening finish to daywear, come rain or shine. Finally, green is enjoying its very own revival right now… and, with its light, creamy and earthy khaki tones, Love You Very Matcha provides a perfectly energising lift to your look.

Brights beckon

While more subtle shades are a transition-season staple, bold, bright and neon colours are an instant mood lifter, ideal after a dull and dreary winter. So why not wear them now?! While you may normally shy away from blues, we think you’ll be surprised how much the punchy, electric tones of Maliblue really perk you up. What’s more, it’s a fresh, fun colour for evening wear. Alternatively, channel all-out spring spirit with our vivacious orange, Spontaneous, or ultra-bright pink, Sacred Lotus - perfect neon polishes for breathing new life into your post-winter style.

The unique qualities of our oxygenated, moisture-permeable and 12-free nail polishes mean you can switch between shades to your heart’s content during the seasonal transition. Just don’t forget to seal in their sublime colour, shine and staying power with one our breathable base and top coats. Start with a sweep of Strengthen & Breathe Base Coat & Nail Strengthener, then finish with a layer of Fast Dry Gloss. Pure manicure perfection!
