NOTD: Easter/Spring Mani!

Yes this is a late post as well. But I found out that the ladies in the counseling office at my school were talking some smack about how I haven’t posted lately. ;-P Haha, actually I was really happy they read my blog, and it got me off my lazy butt to post some more. Then some of our friends came over and mentioned how it’s been so long since I posted…I’m kinda shocked people are reading – why don’t you comment people?! :-)

So this post is for all of the fantastic, wonderful, helpful ladies (gents too perhaps) in the Counseling Office at Edison Middle School!

Easter Mani - Skittle Pastels (2)

I don’t actually celebrate Easter, but I used to as a kid because I grew up in a Presbyterian dominant home. On Easter Sunday, Jason and I went to my in-laws for Passover Seder actually. Anyway, these are some awesome pastels that I did a “skittles” mani with. We use the term skittles when you do each nail a different color. Then I stamped the nails with a medium gray Nubar color called Stronghold and a Konad plate. If you don’t know what Konad is – do a google search or look it up on Youtube to see some great tutorials. It’s really easy and so cute!

Keep reading for lots more pictures (including the right hand) and the line up of polishes I used. 

Aren’t these colors cute? All of the pastels from the recent Essie spring collection: Neo Whimsical (pink), Tart Deco (peach), Lilacism (lavendar), Essie Mint Candy Apple (mint green) China Glaze Lemon Fizz (yellow), and Color Club Take Me to Your Chateau (blue).

    ooh … I love these colors. I have seen some “skittles” style with the neon colors and I did not like it at all, but these looks awesome. I am Googling “Konad plate” right now!

    Wow! That is amazing and looks so professional! I love it.

    For the close-up photos, are you using the macro (flower) setting on your camera? If not, you’ll get even crisper and more detailed photos if you try it! (A friend told me about it when I was desperately trying to take a photo of my *new* engagement ring a year ago, but they kept coming out all distorted and blurry.)

    Hi Michelle!

    Congratulations on your recent engagement!!! Yes, all of these pictures are taken with the macro setting on my camera. I really want a DSLR camera, but alas, I do not have enough money right now. The camera I use for my nails is a Nikon…and it’s just not that great. Oh well…I’m trying.
