More nail polishes, yay! KathleenLights recently released her spring collection that was inspired by garden-like pastel shades. As I've done with all her other nail polishes, I'll be swatching/reviewing them all for you here and sharing my overall thoughts on the collection. Also, enjoy close-up images of our dirty ass floor. Thanks, dogs.
Actually remembered to take a photo of the box this time. You're welcome.
This light yellow has a glitter in it as well that gives it a cool reflect in the sun... but it stays all over your hands when you take the polish off. Either way, it's a nice spring shade but not one I'll likely be reaching for very much.
Gum Would Be Perfection
Bubblegum pink isn't really my color, but this shade was opaque on two coats and had good wear time. I don't know if it's a difference in the formula or my nails but all the polishes seemed to last longer than usual. V thankful for that.
I waited until I had tried all of the other shades in this collection before using Charmed because I knew I would love it that much. I wish a photo did this shade justice, but you have to buy it for yourself to see how beautiful the duochrome is. This is the one shade I would highly recommend you pick up from the spring launch.
I was really disappointed by Miss Kensington. This was one of the colors that I was more excited for but I think it just looked bad with my skin tone for some reason. Probably won't reach for this one again unless I'm in a minty mood.
Pinky would be an especially great bridal color but is also good for everyday wear. I think I'll be turning to this shade when I just want a light wash of color on my nails.
Heart eye emojis all around for Dream Boy. Queen Hal Pal approved.

So I'm only a few weeks away from graduating and (hopefully) starting a full-time job. With that change in life also comes a change in wardrobe. Though I haven't been sloppy these last few years, my closet could definitely use a few piece with polish to make my wardrobe more work appropriate. Here are a few pieces I'd love to add to prepare me for a new job.
ZARA Linen Trousers With Bow
These ZARA trousers would be great for summer work days, especially casual Friday. The paper-bag waist and linen fabric are perfect for the upcoming season.
Elizabeth and James Carson Blazer and Harmon Wide Leg Trousers
I know you're all probably surprised that I put a pink suit on this list, but how chic is this Elizabeth and James option? The blazer and trousers can be bought separately if you only want part of the look, but imagine walking into the office in a full pink suit. Instant head turner.
ZARA Long Blazer With Belt
I already have the matching trousers for this blazer, but I still need to add this to top them off. Like the suiting option above, you can buy the pieces separately and style them separately, but I'd love to wear the full-on orange look to the office with some fun shoes and jewelry.
ZARA Striped Belted Dress
Dresses are always a workwear staple but finding one that's both fun and office-appropriate can be difficult. I love this option from ZARA because it's your typical shirtdress with a little twist that makes it stand out from the crowd.
Madewell Zip Top Transport Leather Tote
A great tote is an essential, especially if you're commuting by train like I probably will be. This bag would fit my laptop, chargers, a book, snacks and anything else I might need and still look super chic. I also love that this bag comes with a zip top so I can keep my valuables out of sight while on the train.
