Press Sample: Forever Polished - Moon Shine
The Beauty Buffs! The lovely Nory of Fierce Makeup and Nails started a group for some of us fashion and beauty bloggers. Every other Wednesday we'll post on a different theme and each of us will interpret it differently. It's really interesting to see how we're all so different. I'm a little late with today's post and I've seen what everyone else has done so far. Trust me, it's worth a looksie!
Today's post is about the spring fashion trend of pastels. I've also thrown in a small review for an gorgeous holo glitter topper. Don't miss out on the tutorial and link up after the jump!
Sinful Colors Snow Me White

large angled paintbrush
1) I started with a white base. I mixed the fuchsia and purple paints with a bit of white to make them pastel. Then, I added a dot of each to the nail.
2) With the large angled brush, swipe the paint back and forth. Allow the first coat to dry and repeat until the colors build up to the desired opacity.
3) Apply a topcoat to finish it off and seal in the design.
Finished product: I used 3 swipes to get this look.
These colors blended together so, so well! Using the paintbrush to make the gradient was much easier than using a makeup sponge. Plus it wasn't as messy! Anything with less clean up is an A+ in my book.

silver holo moons
micro silver holo sparkles
This glitter topper applied beautifully and without problem. I got a few moons in the mix. I actually prefer a few rather than a ton of them. It dried on the quicker side and only needed one swipe of topcoat.
I love this look! It's perfect for spring. The holo sparkles play up the base, plus it hides any imperfections in the nail art application.
