NOTD: Shades of Pink

May 15, 2013

Hello, friends!  How is your week going so far??  I had a wonderful birthday on Monday with the Boyfriend and another surprise birthday dinner last night with a good friend of mine – yum!  Today I have another quick post for you.  I had so much fun doing my last manicure in Shades of Green that I decided to do a similar manicure for my birthday, this time in shades of pink!

I loved the look of having two accent nails in shades similar to my “base” color, so I went with the same pattern using my favorite pink polishes and a pale lilac purple as a further accent.  Here are the polishes:

I am wearing neon “Pink Hottie” by Milani (507) as the base color along with my favorite “MoMa” pink by NYC (238) and “Lincoln Square Lavender” by NYC (264) as accent colors.  I finished the manicure off with my favorite “Glossy Pink” top coat by Rimmel London (160).

The pale neon pink color by Milani is actually one of my favorite shades to wear for summer.  It reminds me of being a kid and having the whole summer off to swim and play with friends.  I think I even had a Barbie doll with a bathing suit in this exact shade of pink!

I also love the way a multi-colored manicure accents any outfit like it does with my new green dress that I wore on Sunday.  On Saturday night, the shades of pink and lavender even matched my pale pink / peach dress that I wore for dinner!

What are your favorite colors to wear on your nails?  Do you stick to neutrals or pops of bright color, one shade for all nails or fancy patterns, glitters and multiple colors??  The best part of wearing nail polish is showing off your personality!

Thanks for reading :)
