Spring has sprung, in my part of the country and my thoughts are turning to the perfect blush colours to wear on my fair skin as the days warm up and my allergies shift into high gear in their never ending quest to do me in, once and for all. Today, the Makeup Wars bloggers are sharing some of our favorite blushes for spring. I did some stash diving and I came up with three pink and three coral blushes perfect for the bright, warm days ahead. I decided to choose blushes in different price points so that everyone can find something fresh and pretty for the new season.

Makeup Wars is celebrating the Pantone Color of the Year, Ultraviolet and I'm sharing with you my picks for the four purple OPI nail polishes that everyone needs. 


First, please allow me to apologize. My camera is no longer picking up purple as well as it used to so these polishes do not translate anywhere close to true to life.

OPI You're Such a Budapest, a gentle lavender crelly enhanced by the finest of multicoloured sparkles.

OPI Do You Lilac It? is a beautiful lilac creme. This beloved core line shade screams spring.

OPI Do You Have this Colour in Stockholm? Intense, perfect royal purple creme.

OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, this deep, dark true purple is the queen of all of the vampy polishes.


Behold swatches, from index to pinkie, in the order listed above.

All four of these polishes have a flawless formula, they all apply like a dream and are perfect in three easy coats.

If you're looking for new to your stash nail polishes to celebrate the Pantone Color of the Year, grab one or all of these exceptional OPI purples and splash them all over your nails!
