Pastel Swirl Nail Art

I fancied a delicate, pastel manicure today.  For the base colour I used 2 coats of Nails Inc Oxford, which I've used before for my frosted snowflakes manicure.  I love nails inc pastel colours, they're so easy to apply.

I then applied a lilac acrylic paint using a fan brush and handpainted some little swirls and a heart.  It's all finished off with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri.

I have actually used PVA glue as a base for this manicure.  I've heard it's easy to remove and saves damaging nails with nail polish remover.  I'll let you know how it goes :)

UPDATE: I bought the Rimmel Matte topcoat a few weeks ago and decided to try it over this manicure. Oh am I glad I did! It's totally transformed it. I love it!! and my nails have a satin feel to them now!
