New Nail Polishes for Spring & Summer

  I'm super excited for the prospect of the weather warming up and although the sun seems to be taking it's time I'm in a summer mood.  I've done a clearout of my nail polishes to make way for these 9 new polishes that are perfect for spring and summer.

Revlon Topaz: I received this for free from the Revlon Selects program and I couldn't be happier with this shade!  Topaz is a duochrome that shines gold, green, and blue depending on the light.  The formula is thin and lasts a long time without chipping.
Joe Fresh Bronze: A true warm toned bronze.  Joe Fresh polishes have a great thick brush and are long lasting.
Topshop Mermaid:  In the bottle this appears to be a duo-chrome but it's not.  That is not to say I'm disappointed though as I love this light metallic green.

Joe Fresh Canary: A bright canary yellow!  An absolute stunning shade.  The formula is slightly streaky but it's workable. 
Illamasqua Collide: My first Illamasqua shade!  I choose this bright pink as it seemed easy to wear and it is.  This is hands down the best formula I've ever tried.  Very easy to apply and doesn't chip for ages. 
Joe Fresh Orange Sorbet: When I think of orange sorbet I think of a pastel colour but this is more of a bright orange.

Revlon Natural Pink: This is another shade I received for free from Revlon Selects.  Natural pink is well...a natural pink!  This is a nice neutral colour for everyday and it looks amazing under glitter topcoats. 
Barry M Ridley Road: I did already review this but I love it so much I thought I'd include this vibrant mint green.  This is a textured polish so it might not be up everyone's alley but I love it.  I received this from Jess from J.S. and Makeup
Models Own Utopia: This is another polish Jess sent me.  It's a pale purpley grey colour that looks great both on fingers and toes.  This polish only requires 2 coats (I usually need 3) and is very wearable.

What's your favourite new nail polish?
