Tis the season for pastels...everyone is doing them! They're really not my cuppa tea, but I did pick up a few- Claire's Pastel set, Orly Lemonade & Pixy Stix, Maybelline Pie In The Sky & Goody Plum Drop, and Love Bites #050.
Since you've seen most of the popular ones swatched already, I used Love Bites 050, an orchid with a pearl sheen for my mani base color. It's very pretty- totally reminds me of Rhododendrons.
All pictures taken outside;
The sun ate the pretty pearl shimmer. You can just make out a hint of it in this next picture;
I did this konadicure about an hour before I left for work this morning, so I did not have time to clean up the Seche that pooled at my cuticles and sidewalls.
I used 2 coats LB 050, broke out Konad plates M26 & M51, and stamped with Color Club, Where's The Soiree?. Flower petals were filled in using a dotting tool with the following pastels from Claire's set; pink, blue, green, coral, Orly, Lemonade and Sally Hansen nail art pen in white. I must have added too much thinner to my Seche, because it smudged CC WTS on my ring finger. I re-stamped a flower over the smudge and made a mess. which looks worse on Macro than in real life.
