My favorite Spring/Summer 2013 nail polish collections

Now that the Christmas decorations have been taken down, New Year's Resolutions have been made, as far as I'm concerned, it's time to get ready for spring. 

Okay, I know I'm getting a little (... a lot?) ahead of myself and that we still have a couple of cold months left, but that doesn't mean I can't already start daydreaming about sunny days and pastel shades.

Most companies have already announced their nail polish collections for spring/summer 2013, and as you can probably guess, Miss Nail Polish Hoarder over here is already picking out her favorites and marking the release dates on her calendar.

Here are my favorite nail polish collections for spring/summer 2013:

1. butter LONDON Sweetie Shop Collection for Spring 2013

Top: (Left to Right) Jasper, Kerfuffle, Molly Coddled
Bottom: (Left to Right) Fruit Machine, Fiver, Cuppa
I adore butter LONDON polishes, although you have to pay an arm and a leg for them. Kerfuffle and Fiver are at the top of my nail polish wishlist, for sure!

2. OPI Euro Centrale Collection for Spring 2013

Top: (Left to Right) My Vampire is Buff, Suzi's HUNGARY again!, Hands off my Kielbasa,  OY-Another Polish joke, A Woman's Prague-ative, My Paprika is Hotter than yours
Bottom: (Left to Right) You're such a BudPest,  Vant to Bite my Neck, Can't find my Czechbook, OPI...Eurso Euro, I Saw...You Saw..We Saw..Warsaw,
I don't know about you, but I always get a kick out of OPI's names for their polishes. Some of them are quite a mouthful. Of course, I'm leaning towards the pink (Suzi's HUNGARY again!) and red (My Paprika is Hotter than yours) ones. I'm also quite fond of the lavender (You're such a BudPest) and light blue (Can't find my Czechbook) polishes.

3. Estée Lauder Heavy Petals Collection for Spring 2013

Left to Right: Narcissist, Lilac Leather, Coral Cult, Dilettante, Absinthe
I didn't even know that Estée Lauder had a nail polish line...Where have I been!? But how lovely is this collection? I want each and every one of these right now, like, yesterday!

4. Dior Cruise Collection 2013

Left to Right: Mango, Pasteque, Lime
These colors will be perfect for summer. I'm really drawn to the orange polish (Mango). Not too sure about the green one with my skin tone, I'll have to take a look at some swatches online first.

5. Dior Cherie Bow Collection for Spring 2013

Left to Right: Rosy Bow, Tutu, Gris Trianon
These shades greatly appeal to my inner girly girl. I already have similar colors in my collection and wear them often. But what's with the taupe shade (Trianon) for spring? I usually wear that color in fall and winter.

6. Chanel Le Vernis for Spring 2013

Left to Right: Emprise, Accessoire, Fracas
It looks like pink shades will be very popular this season. I love Fracas, even though it seems that there might be a slight gold shimmer in it. Or is the picture just a little misleading? Never mind, I think it will look good with all skin tones. Accessoire doesn't really float my boat, that's also a fall and winter color for me.

My absolute favorites are the butter LONDON and Estée Lauder collections. I want to own each and every one of them. Greedy much...!?

Which collections are you loving?


  1. This was inspiring, especially now that I have begun painting my nails.
    Right now I like a semi-bright blue color that I found. I think it could be described as cerulean.

    1. I'm glad you like it! Will you get any of these polishes for spring? Have a nice day! xxx

    2. I will probably get a couple of the OPI ones...not sure where to find the other brands around here.

    3. It's also hard for me to get my hands on these brands. I usually buy them on, or I ask my sister to buy them when she's traveling.

  2. Hey! Thanks for visiting my blog, and for your nice comment. I'll definitely check out your blog. :-)
