Creative musings in bright colors

Pastel Sunrise

This manicure honors my first polish-buying binge in a month and a half. I got 4 colors. For $3. I’m really rather ok with this. My rite aid was having a buy-one-get-one for both wet n’ wild and maybelline.

All I actually WANTED was a light pink…and some pastels to round out my rather pathetic collection of yellows and oranges. I also nabbed a white (but the details on that will be in tomorrows post because why not?).

I was actually pleasantly surprised by the three pastel polishes. The orange and yellow (both maybelline) only took two coats, and dried rather quickly to a semi-gloss (it wasn’t quite matte). The light pink took three thin coats and dried nice and shiny. None of them are shown over white except where the white is visible.

Of course, I had to go add nail art. That’s what I do. So…dots! I personally like the stripy nails better, but a lot of the girls in my lab preferred the dots. Each to their own!

  1. I really like this, very bright and fun… but not too bright!

  2. This is great and for me, in my “morning,” it is a real waker-upper to the “sunshine” of an almost summer day. The variety, especially the “flower” dots grab the eye! Tx for the chance to look!
