Guest Post: ColorsFrenzy with Beautiful Pastel Nail Art!

Written by Katie Schmidt

Hi everyone!

I’m Novi, the blogger behind ColorsFrenzy. I’m relatively new in the blogging world, turning one next month. I practice my nail art skill and do swatches here and there, basically just anything I feel like doing that day.

I’m so excited to be able to do a guest post for Katie! If you’re following her on instagram, you’d know that Katie does some fabulous manis herself.

I had other mani done for this post, but ended up not liking it so much, and I sure won’t pass something that I’m not fond of myself. Today I came up with a mani that I’m satisfied with. I think it’s kinda cute and ‘springy’ (although I think we’re skipping spring here).

I started this mani with 3 thin coats of Lime Crime Milky Ways and let it dry completely.

Then using Pueen 54 from the buffet set and Picture Polish Badass, I stamped the squares pattern on each nail. Badass is pretty great to use for stamping.

The next step is creating the chevron tips, I used Picture Polish Peaches n’ Cream & Tiffany. Using the polish brush, I swipe from one side of the nail up to about 2/3 of the tip, creating a triangle. And I do the same from the other side of the nail, one corner of the triangle is overlapping in the middle of the tip.

With a dotting tool, I dotted the corners of the squares, alternating the colours (also using Picture Polish Peaches n’ Cream & Tiffany). It makes the stamped pattern looks like quilted squares.

For the accent nail, I didn’t do the chevron tip. Instead, I just dotted the inside of the squares. Finished off with a quick dry & shiny top coat.

Picture Polish is one of my favorite indie brand, so far I’m loving all the ones I have. I’ve also been trying to complete the pastels from Lime Crime, soon they all will be mine!
