Loving… pretty pastel nails

As well as loving bright nails, I’m falling for soft pastel shades. Just as mint and peach have entered my wardrobe this year, so have pastel shades featured on my fingertips.

Nail Romance’s pick of pastel polishes

Try saying that 10 times quickly!

Hello Darling’s Not Your Nanna’s Nightie collection features seven delicious shades. Nail Romance loves Mint Slice and Butter Wouldn’t Melt.

Pretty Pastels from Face of Australia is a super affordable range that makes a multi coloured mani easy to do. Nail Romance loves Would you like some Orange Sherbet? and Once in a Blue Moon.

L’Oreal’s Miss Candy collection features more delicious pastel shades. These polishes have a larger brush which means I can change colour in just two brushstrokes. Too easy. Nail Romance loves Monaco Roses and Riviera Lavender.

These candy coloured nails look good enough to eat! You can find more pastel nail-spiration on the Pastel Nail Romance Pinterest board.

Loving…Pink and Orange Neons

I’ve loved pink and orange as a colour combination ever since I was little. It’s not a conventional favourite, but it makes me happy. Especially when it’s neon bright!

Nails Inc Notting Hill Gate is a rosy pink neon, with medium shine that is opaque in two coats.

Hello Darling Teenage Dream a true highlighter pink creme that is opaque in one coat, though I’ve painted two coats here.

Hello Darling Love on Top is a vibrant hi-vis orange creme that is opaque in one coat, and super-bright in two.

Orly Holla is slightly darker than Love on Top, though still packs a neon punch. Almost opaque in one coat and fully in two. It had a slightly matte finish.

All polishes shown with two thin coats and finished with Hello Darling top coat.

Yes, I wore them all at once and I make no apologies for mismatching fluoro nails.
