Pastel Summer Nails

18:58

Hey Beauties!

I love pastel nail polishes for the spring. But this year, I actually love to wear them in the summer as well. While I was admiring ombre shades of hydrangea, I got idea for this ombre summer nails. I also added some fun design on my ring finger. Think, I saw the design on Pinterest, although I didn't save the photo, so I don't know who to credit for the idea.


Hydrangea that I had in mind is this one that has such a pretty blue, purple and pink pastel ombre. It looked so pretty that I decided to search for the same shades in my nail polish collection.



I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 171 Bleach Babe as a white base and to enhance pastel shades on top.



Then I used Avon Gel Shine in Rain Washed as a pastel blue, Avon Gel Shine in Lavender Sky as a pastel purple and Maybelline Color Show The Blushed Nudes in 447 Dusty Rose as a pastel pink. I applied them with a sponge to create ombre effect. I should probably go over it one more time, but I decided to just leave it as it is. If you'll go over with the second coat, you'll prevent white base from peaking through. 



On my ring finger I created this pretty accent design with using just doting tool. I alternated between small and bigger dots. I think the design is perfect for summer and it kind of reminds me of statement necklaces. For that I use Avon Gel Shine in Iceberg White, Parfait Pink, Mint To Be and Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Lemon Sugar.



To get a bit more unique finish, I decided to make the manicure matte with Kiko 3 in 1 Mat Fortifying Fast Dry Base and Top Coat.


I think pastel nail polishes look very pretty in the summer, especially if you catch some tan or are naturally darker. I love the contrast and how it pops out. Ring finger design gives it a bit more dimension and I love these pastel shade combinations. There's nothing better than taking inspiration from nature.

    1. Hvala :) <3 Ombre je res čudovit. Čeprav meni vedno ne uspe najbolje. Je kar odvisno kakšne so razlike med odtenki. Tukaj, ko so vsi pasteli, je lažje. :) Hvala ;)

  2. Prečudoviiiito.<3 Za poletje in pomlad mi je ombre efekt prekrasen (škoda, da jaz nimam žilice za to), pa ta dizajn na prstancu lepo popestri vse skupaj.:))
    Pa meni so hortenzije ena najljubših rožic, ki jih narava ponuja v tem času. Moram obvezno imeti kakšen cvet v vazi ali pa kot dodatek na sliki.:D

    1. Hvala :) <3 Eh saj ombre ni noben izziv. Samo spackaj lake v črtah na gobico in tapkaj na prst. Praktično ne moreš nič narobe naredit ;). Meni so tudi hortenzije čudovite, čeprav jih nimamo doma. Jih pri fantu kradem :).

    2. Zdaj pa si mi dala spodbudo, da enkrat res sprobam. :P Mi deluje res lepo na nohtih, ampak vedno me je strah karkoli eksperimentirat. :D Večinoma si nanesem barvni lak, pa kakšne bleščice za popestritev, kaj več pa že težko. :D Ampak bom poskusila enkrat ta ombre. :D
      Hehe, a veš da je pri meni isto. :) Doma jih nimamo nič, medtem ko majo jih pri fantu doma res ogromnooo (poleg vsega drugega cvetja), tako da tudi pogosto kakšen cvet ''ukradem''. :P

    1. Ne vem kaj je to letos z mano, ampak so mi pastelni raki res čudoviti. Mogoče so krivi odtenki, ki sem si jih kupila :). Hehe, super ;).
