British Nail Bloggers Colour Me Crazy Challenge! Week 10 - Pastel

Greetings All!

I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get something done for this prompt. I've been suffering from a major lack of inspiration lately, and when I do paint my nails, they aren't very pastel. A lot of black polish is being used around here.


Thankfully I remembered I have a whole folder of other people's nails bookmarked, either to inspire me, or because they were so nice that I just...needed to be able to look at them again!


Last Summer I saw these nails on PenguinsLeftGreenPolish (a fellow BNB and fellow leftie!), and they were so cute I couldn't stand it! I like to think of it more as an homage than straight up pinching the design, so I hope that's OK!


Pastel nails.





I really loved how Nada created the cone design with stamping, and even though I said I was avoiding stamping for this challenge, I've allowed myself. Trying to freehand this pattern when I have the stamps just sitting there just seems silly!


For the cones I used Etude House Ice Cream Nails in Peach, Barry M Matte in Mocha and PUEEN25. The ice creams are the Models Own Fruit Pastel collection. I was super lazy and just painted them on straight from the bottle. Then matte topcoat, for that sugary sweet look.


I've also managed to get next week's nails done. So I only have one more manicure to do for this challenge! As it's the only challenge I've done so far this year, I'm quite pleased with myself.

    I'm with you on the lack of inspiration for pastel - I want to paint mine bright bright BRIGHT at the moment.
