Pick 'N' Mix Challenge: Pastels & Lilac/Teal

Sunday 24 May 2015

Oooh good evening beauties!
I can't tell you how glad I am for another long bank holiday weekend... Although I had a thoroughly enjoyable week at the new job, a breath of fresh air for sure; I've also been rather stressed trying to get used to the new routine and still trying to do EVERYTHING else (nails, blog, study, endless housework, gardening, grocery shopping, exercise, the list goes on) whether I need to or not. Of course I fail and then turn into the 'temple of doom' as my mother says hahahaha! Luckily I have the best man in the world by my side who turned my forwn upside down and today I'm feeling sunnier, and have managed to pull this weeks challenge mani together just in the nick of time...


I started with two coats of Fondant and then sponged a coat of Greenberry half way down. I finished with a quick gold dotticure and topcoat. Simple to do and almost tranquil to look at, just what I needed to escape today :) Bazza never lets me down!

Love these two colours together, it's not often I do a gradient with two such different shades and I actually really like its bare-faced simplicity. I think the gold is the perfect accent...

Barry M: Fondant, Greenberry, Gold Foil, 3in1. Amazon: Dotting Tool. Sponge.

 Hopefully I can get myself organised, prioritised and back on track over the next week, I thought I had it down last week but a couple of draining days and it's all gone to pot, I am my own worst enemy as far as putting pressure on myself! Now I'm off to see what everyone below has been up to while I've been in my lil cave lol...
