pastel nail art

Valentine’s Day

I wanted to do a valentine’s day manicure based on soft romantic pastels and did a hugely simplified version of mydesign4you’s black and red design in my favourite pastel shades.

However I felt that the pink pastel hearts got a bit lost and it was all a bit too soft and wishy-washy – not how I’d envisaged it looking at all!

So today I went over the hearts from yesterday’s manicure and used a bright pink and a pink glitter, which were completely different from the original soft pastel pink and turned it into a much bolder design.

In the end I’m not sure which I liked best. It’s not one of my best manicures and I feel a bit frustrated that I haven’t quite got the colour combination right. I’d love some opinions on this one – which looks best: the pale pink, the bright pink or the pink glitter?

I used: Dreamer – Revlon, Where’s my Chauffeur – Essie, Sumner Place – Nails Inc, Elizabeth Street – Nails Inc (the pale pink), Sensation – Color Addict (the bright pink), Ruby Ribbon – Revlon (the pink glitter)
