Simple Pleasures polishes

I have nothing to disclose. All polishes mentioned here I won in a giveaway.

The past few weeks I've been doing a lot of nail art using my Simple Pleasures polishes, but I realized I hadn't done a full manicure with them so I decided to do one to show them to you. The colors just happen to be perfect for Easter, also!

This is what the collection I own looks like.

There are 6 colors plus 1 glitter, so what I did was a skittle but I painted one accent nail one shade of purple and the other accent the other shade.

(please pardon my goofy thumb nail.. I've had issues with it for the past month or so but that's a story for another blog post.)

Then I added the glitter polish to all of the nails and now they look like Easter eggs! :)

If you've glanced at my Facebook page at all, you've probably seen me complain about the Spring colors this year.. I am not a fan of pastel colors. This is probably the only time you'll see pastels on my blog and this is about as pastel as I am going to get. However, I do love all of these colors.. except for the orange because it's just too peachy in my opinion and I don't like peach.

These polishes are on the cheapy side, but so far the polish itself has lasted longer than some other higher end polishes I can think of (*ahem* Zoya). I meant to get a picture of the brushes but alas, I forgot so maybe I'll add that to my post tomorrow.. anyway, the brushes are very chintzy. The brush for the glitter polish literally bends to the side.

These polishes are great for doing nail art, though! I've actually been thinking about getting another set someday just to have for more nail art. These would also be great for kids.

I'm not sure where you can find this specific set, but just browsing online, Kohls and Younkers both sell Simple Pleasures and you can also buy them online at Amazon or eBay. They also make a bunch of scented polishes.. I don't think these smell like anything unique. I could be wrong though!

Have you tried Simple Pleasures? What do you think?
