Pastel Polka Dot Nails




Not that it's mid January I can start convincing myself that Winter is slowly but surely leaving us. I wish I could say I liked snuggling up in warm jumpers but I just don't. I'm a Summer girl and
I'm counting down to Spring!

And I'm way ahead of myself, especially on the nail front. It seemed like the best place to start seeing as it's too cold to get out the floaty skirts just yet. 

Out with the Berry Reds and Taupes I wore so much over the Christmas Season and in with the Pastels! Pastel nails are probably my favourite look if I'm honest. I just love the girlyness of them without being too pink and pretty.

So for this I used a mixture of polishes from my collection along with my new Barry M Nail art pen that I picked up in a recent Boots Haul.

The colours I used are Revlon 'Blue Lagoon', Models Own 'Grape Juice', Maybelline 'Mint for Life'  and Nails inc 'You're a Peach'

I very simply dotted randomly with the black nail pen and that was that. Very simple indeed. I love the nail art pen, I find Berry M ones much easier to use than other brands as they feel sort of like a felt tip and are much easier to manage.

Polka dots are the easiest to do and they can transform a very simple look into something a bit more interesting.
