Pastel NOTD

Currently watching: The Big Bang Theory

Hi girls! I hope you're all having a lovely Saturday and enjoying the sunshine :-)

Inspired by the sight of the sun, I decided to use pastel shades for my manicure today. The only problem is that I only have four pastel shades and I wanted each nail to be different. I used orange as my fifth colour but on reflection I may have been better with Eyeko Vintage Polish as the orange was just too bright (just between you and me: I almost texted my boyfriend to ask him to buy Barry M Peach Melba for me so I could redo my manicure but stopped myself).

Here are the colours I used:



I started stamping white Hello Kitty images on my nails but they didn't turn out well so I turned to be usual quick-fix solution...

Barry M Nail Effects :-)



My new favourite polishes to layer pink crackle polish over are now:

Do you like this manicure? How many pastel shades do you have?

Bye for now,
Laura

    @Deja Vu, glad you like it!

    @Carrie, they do look refreshing and youthful, I agree :-)

    @Theodora, I liked both looks but the crackle polish really surprised me by looking so good with a few of the colours! Think I'll be getting another pastel or two as well ;-)

  11. Those are some great pastel shades! I love all of them! I don't have many in my collection, I think I have a couple pastel pinks and one or two blues.
