5 Pastel Polish Picks For Easter - Which One Should I Choose?

I have such fond memories of Easter - from painting eggs, to hunting for chocolate in the grass, to making fun and yummy desserts! I still love all of that, but instead of painting eggs I'm painting my nails in Easter-perfect shades!

Pastels are so in trend right now. If you're on the hunt for some Easter-friendly polishes here are 5 to throw in your basket! I'm still on the fence about which shade I want to wear this weekend but I'm leaning towards the yellow or mint green polishes - thoughts?


Joe Fresh Nail Polish in Marshmallow ($4 CAD): Light, fluffy, and soft - marshmallow. It's a neutral so you can't go wrong plus it gives your nails a really clean look. I applied 3 coats to get a nice full colour. Perfect for Easter dinner with the family!


O.P.I. In The Spotlight Pink - Femme de Cirque ($10.50 CAD): Pretty in soft pink! Another great neutral that gives you a kiss of pink on the nails. I used 3 coats again to get for a full colour. It will look completely feminine with a floral dress!


Nubar Lemon Sherbet Polish ($10.50 CAD): I absolutely love this sunny and happy polish from Nubar! I prefer a pastel yellow over one that has warmer undertones. Lemon Sherbet really pops against the skin and makes me look tanner than I really am. The only thing I wish was that the brush was a little wider. I also used 3 coats for a fuller colour. This one is definitely a contender for this weekend!


O.P.I. Planks A Lot - Pirates of the Caribbean ($10.50 CAD): I don't usually gravitate towards lavender shades, but this version is a little deeper. This shade totally reminds me of the paint we used to colour our Easter eggs with!


mark by Avon Mini Nail Lacquer in Mojito - Ibiza summer collection ($7 CAD for 2): Mint green is my favourite shade of the season! Mojito from mark. is new for summer, but you'll be happy to know there are many dupes on the market right now. I love how mini the bottle is and it actually applies pretty well. I only needed 2 coats to get a full colour. It's a toss up between this one and Lemon Sherbet!

What pastel shades are you loving right now? What shade will you be wearing for Easter?

Products were sent for editorial consideration and I truly love them.

I am liking the Nubar or the mark mini! Both are so spring-y and easter coloured! Make me smile. :)

Thanks Davida - I'm torn but maybe I'll wear the Nubar one since it will be pretty gloomy and rainy this weekend!

I vote for the Nubar, it looks gorgeous on your nails. You're so lucky you've found a yellow that works. I've tried soooo many yellow shades and that shade always clashes with my undertones.

Hope u have a happy Easter weekend :)

@Shadowy Lady - Thanks! Yah, there are some yellows that can make the skin look sallow. I find the ones that have more white in it brighten the skin - I'm sure Lemon Sherbet would look amazing on you!

Make-up Junkie said...

@Curls and Pearls - LOL I figured as much! What do you think of mark's summer collection? Colours totally remind me of Cadbury mini eggs - had some the other day! lol

Make-up Junkie said...

@Danielle - Thank you! I do like Planks Alot - it's my 3rd choice and will probably wear it soon!

Make-up Junkie said...

@Jessica - LOVE that idea! But with my luck the dots would probably end up looking like blobs! lol

Make-up Junkie said...

@Christina - Thank you! It is a pretty shade of purple!

Make-up Junkie said...

I love the Joe Marshmallow color and the Opi Femme Cirque one. I also love the price of the Joe fresh one- much cheaper than my Essie Madamoiselle shade!

Thanks everyone! I ended up going with Lemon Sherbet! The yellow just makes me happy and warm :)
