Monday Blues: Pastel Dots

Hello my lovelies! As you're reading this I am away on a small vacation and hopefully having lots of fun. Of course I needed to schedule a post so I wouldn't miss the Monday Blues of this week. The manicure I'm showing you today was inspired entirely by spring. I really wanted to have some pastel colors on my nails so I created these on a whim. They didn't turn out exactly like I pictured them in my head and my camera died on me after I took the first picture. I had to use my old camera, hence the weird looking pictures. Oh well.

This manicure was created using just British polishes. The base color is Barry M Huckleberry, a lovely light blue pastel creme. I used Barry M Sugar Apple and Models Own Banana Split for the dots. They don't really pop over the base, especially in the photos but they looked better in real life.

I wore these nails for a few days because I didn't have time to change them but I must admit that I didn't enjoy them very much. Maybe it was too much pastel, or my nails were too long for this type of colors, but something was off.

Please let me know what you think of these. I'm sure they would look better with a different combination of colors. Or maybe on shorter nails. Don't forget to check out the rest of this month's Monday Blues in the links below!

Have a great week!


  1. I think this is a lovely spring manicure. But I agree with you, that the colours are just a bit off. Maybe it is the yellow that looks a bit greenish on the blue base. I can not put my finger on it. xo, Pia

    I think it's a pretty combo!! So soft and girly ;0). I know the feeling though. I hate when a mani doesn't turn out the way I expected it to. Hope you're enjoying your vacation!

  3. These are so cute! I like the little yellow dots you added, such a nice touch to this soft color palette of this design.

  4. Chiar arata foarte placut si sunt total primavaratice, nu inteleg de ce nu-ti plac? Cum adica ti-a murit camera? For good? So sorry for your loss. . .
