Creative musings in bright colors

Pastel Patchwork

This design might be one of my favorites since I started playing with the Textured Earth Tone polishes. Simple, yet pretty! I also like the 3D effect of layering the stitches over the other colors without top coat!


The base polish that I used is a very pretty pale beige textured matte polish called Gesso. It is one of my favorites from the collection…it manages to be elegant and subtle without being boring! The gold undertones help. Shown here in two coats. It was one of the easier ones to apply as well.



I painted on the other polishes mostly using the brush from the bottle, since each polish is opaque enough to easily cover the other colors. It helps that I used light ones!


~ Beige: Mentality – Gesso
~ Pink: Mentality – Stucco
~ Gold: Mentality – Loess
~ White: Mentality – Spackle
~ Copper: Mentality – Terracotta


Simple, easy, fun! I hope you enjoyed it! If you want to get Gesso for yourself, check it out here. The rest of the earth tone polishes can be found at the Mentality website, for $6.75 each. 🙂
