Busy Girl Nails Spring Nail Art Challenge - Pastel

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

For the first installment of the Busy Girl Nails Spring Nail Art Challenge, the prompt is pastel.  Perfect for spring, right?  Here's what I came up with.


For this mani, I used striping tape with a pastel blue Adoro polish (a polish from Costa Rica) and Bettina Haze.

Here is the Adoro polish on its own.

The bottle just had the number 30 on it, no name.  The formula wasn't that great on this one.  Like most pastels, it was very streaky.  I used three coats and you could still see that it was uneven.

Here's a look at Haze.

Haze is a pastel purple.  The formula is slightly better on this one.  It's a bit sheer, but you can get coverage with just two coats.  I chose to use three for good measure.

Here's another look at the final product.

I ended up having a few bubbles from my top coat on my middle and ring fingers, but I really love how this manicure turned out.



What do you guys think about this look?  Do you like wearing pastel colors on your nails?

    Also loving the new layout but unfortunately it isn't loading well on my really old work computer... the pictures are squished :( wish I was able to install new software on my work computer so I could update the browser but I guess I can't really complain... I'm supposed to be doing actual WORK at work lol... I'll just have to remember to read your blog when I get home now :)
