Pretty Pastels | #MonthlyMani April

April 21, 2015

Can you believe it’s been a whole month since our last St. Patrick’s Day themed #MonthlyMani in March??  Well, this month’s theme is Pretty Pastels, and I, for one, am very excited!

I decided to use my favorite pastel polish of all time, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in “I Lilac You” (#370).  It is the prettiest pale lilac/lavender hue and I love that it includes base coat, color and top coat all in one bottle!  (Sally Hansen should really sponsor me as much as I use their polish haha! ;))

After painting my pastel purple base, I added pretty cobalt blue flowers with my nail art pen (from BornPrettyStore – discount in sidebar!).  Once the flowers dried, I added a white center with my handy dotting tool (pun intended) in NYC “French Tip White” (#134).

I absolutely love this lilac and cobalt color combination!  It was a bit hard to photograph, but it is even prettier in person (even if my flowers are a tad bit wonky).  I think navy / cobalt blue is my new favorite color this season – it goes so well with everything from pastels to neons!
