As the weather starts to warm up, change your strong nail colours for something lighter, brighter and less seriously. Pinks, purples and nudes are especially hot right now.

YSL La Laque (HK$155)

YSL cosmetics are always classily packaged, and this nail polish is no exception. Fairly sheer, so you'll need two coats, but fast-drying, so you won't need to wait long.

Two Girls Nail Colour (HK$25)

A well known local brand that started decades ago, this is a reasonably priced product, that lasts quite a while, especially given the price.

Estee Lauder x Michael Kors Very Hollywood Nail Lacquer (HK$140)

Thick enough to make one coat enough for an elegant manicure. The lack of chemical smell is very appealing, but it takes a while to dry.

SpaRituals spring collection nail colour (HK$155)

The new spring collection features four shades and this colour, Marvel, represents peace and intuition. Not cheap, but the patented cap and short brush design makes application easier. Dries quickly, too.

Missha The Style Nail Polish (HK$48)

This should get props just for the really cute, heart-shaped bottle. The colour is gorgeous, but you won't get away without a top coat.
