Cool Candy Manicure

by Claire | Jun 10, 2013
Hi TGs!

It's mani time again. Here's one for all you pastel fans - I know you're out there! Pastels are really associated more with spring and summer, but there's no reason not to embrace them all year long. 

Cool Candy-Coloured Nails

This is probably the easiest nail art effect I've featured so far. I also recommend it for my TG who asked for a rainbow manicure - do one nail in each colour. This is way less fiddly than trying to do several colours all on one nail, which is really best suited to advanced nail-painters.

What you need:
  • Three or four different pastel nail polishes.
    Go to your local Target, Kmart, chemist or supermarket. 

What to do:
  1. Easy-peasy! Just paint each nail the colour of your choice.

    The funny thing about pastel polishes is they sometimes tend to be a bit see-through. You might need two or even three coats to get a smooth, even colour. 
  2. Be patient and allow drying time.
  3. Finish with a high gloss top coat, or even a matte coat if you'd like to try something a bit different.
Simple, huh? Now your nails are candy-licious. 

Love and candy,
Claire XOXO
