Hello!! Oh I've been so rubbish lately with blogging. I'm really sorry, I am struggling to post as much as I used to as I'm pretty busy with work and visiting people at weekends! I've made sure to keep this weekend free though to relax :) I really hope you're all well!
So today I have a very delicate manicure perfect for spring! I purchased a few Models Own polishes when they had their 50% off sale so I thought I'd use 3 from the fruit pastel collection for this manicure today. This is not a new collection but I've been meaning to buy them for a while because they're such pretty pastel colours and they also smell fruity. I admit I'd not just buy a polish because it smells nice but it's an added bonus! I first of all applied a white base colour (sinful colors snow white) and then used a makeup sponge to apply apple pie, grape juice and banana split. These polishes are very delicate so I did a couple of layers of sponging to build up the colour. I used Claire's gradient technique from Nuthin' but a nail thing and I'd highly recommend it, her gradients are always so perfect.
I decided to add a bit of stamping too and I love how it turned out! I used MoYou Nails plate 221 and their white stamping polish which were both kindly sent to me to review. (see my other reviews here). I'm very impressed with how well their designs seem to stamp, I had no problems picking up the design and as you can see their white polish stamps very clearly even over a light base. I also had no smudging when I applied HK girl topcoat.
What do you think? Are you a fan of pretty pastels? I tend to wear them once winter is over!
