ProcrastiNails: Spring Renewal Challenge: Spotted Pastel Accent Mani

The second theme for the Spring Renewal Nail Art Challenge was pastels. We all know that I love pastels so when it came to choosing what polishes to use I went with two of the new ones I picked up last week. This is actually the re-creation of a mani that I did for a coworker the other day – I just loved the combo so much I had to re-create it for myself! The look isn’t in-your-face spring or Easter themed, but I still really like it and I’m really happy to be able to share it with you today. 🙂

It seems like every brand under the sun has a pastel crelly with black spots/hex glitter out for Easter. And I’m not complaining, since I think they’re awesome bases for seasonal nail looks. They give you the impression of spotted/candy eggs! The shade I used here is L’Oreal Paris Spot Me which is a blue crelly packed with all sizes of black hex glitters. I used three coats (over a single coat of Essie Blanc to help the colour build up).

My accent nail is two coats of Rimmel London 60 Seconds I Lilac You. I was really sad when Rimmel London discontinued their Lasting Finish Pro line since I really loved the quality and brushes, so when I picked this bottle up and gave it a try I was super happy to find that this line continues the same quality and brushes but in smaller sized bottles (and with better colours). Yay! I finished this nail off with a single black jewel from a Sally Hansen kit to pick up on the black spots idea and make the whole look cohesive.

I love mini multi-day challenges like this, and if you’re interested in joining in I really want to encourage you to join the Challenge Your Nail Art facebook group. We already have general challenge topics set up from now through September, and before we start the month we all vote on which themes we want included. It’s fun, and no-pressure to finish all of even any of the themes if they don’t inspire you. Check it out! 🙂

Here’s a look at the rest of the themes we’re tackling this month:
