Here's my contest entry into Valiantly Varnished Spring Nail Art Contest. I realized after doing this manicure that I actually don't own a lot of pastels polishes. I basically have at least one color of the basic pastel shades so it was a little difficult for me to come up with a design. I went with a simple but cute design for the nails using my favorite nail art tool which is the dotting tool.
I used China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint on all the nails. Taking China Glaze Lemon Fizz and Julep Hayden, I applied these two colors using the saran wrap method. For the flowers and dots, I used a dotting tool to create them with American Apparel Coney Island, Essie Borrowed & Blue, and the other various colors I used previously. Finished with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat.
I love creating flowers with a dotting tool so I like how these turned out. The pastel shades blended into each other a bit so it gave the nails a subtle look which I like. What do you think?
