Another week, another Manicure Monday post for you to (hopefully) enjoy..
The last week or so has seen me start making the move back to pastels and my first port of call was the Models Own Fruit Pastel Collection – a set of 5 stunning pastel polishes that I come back to time and time again. It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for anything pastel, so I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more pastel nail shades coming your way in future Manicure Monday posts!
After much deliberation I decided to use Blueberry Muffin – a beautiful baby blue shade that deserves a lot more attention than I’ve been giving it over the last couple of years. I can’t fault the formula of Models Own polishes as they’re always nice and thick. This is the consistency that I look for in nail polish as it makes for much easier and quicker application. Blueberry Muffin applies well and is opaque in 2 coats which is absolutely fine by me. Last but not least, the polishes in the Fruit Pastel collection are scented which some may see as being pretty gimmicky, but it’s a feature that I personally love as they all remind me of the scented gel pens I used to adore when I was younger.
I know that blue nail polish may not be everyone and I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant about wearing blue against my pale and cooler toned skin. Thankfully Blueberry Muffin and a few other pastel blues have really changed my mind as they look so pretty on the nails and just scream spring and summer, although I’m happy to be wearing them all year round. If you’re a bit unsure about blue nails, I’d definitely recommend giving them a try before ruling them out completely!
