My summer manicures are always bright, but they almost always have another thing in common too - they're pink. I love pink. It works with my skin tone and it looks great on my nails. L'Oréal Paris is launching a summer collection called Colour Me Pink next month, and all of the products are in pink tones. It's as if it were made for me.
The nail colors:
- Berry Jealous!
- Sugary Sweet
- Taste of Romance
- Pink Attitude
- Rosy Macaron
- Hella Pink
I selected two of the shades for my summer manicure so I could have an accent nail, with a bit of a design. I used Pink Attitude as the base and accented it with Sugary Sweet on my ring finger. Pink Attitude is a beautiful, creamy geranium pink-red shade; Sugary Sweet is a sheer, light pink with a subtle shimmer that is only really visible in bright light.
First, I applied two coats of Pink Attitude. After they were dry, I taped off (using band aids because I am such a novice and never thought of using tape, which would have given me a much more clean edge) a vertical line on my ring finger, and applied three coats of Sugary Sweet. I left that on for about 30 minutes before I removed the guides. Finally, I took a little self adhesive crystal that I had left from a craft project, and placed that on my nail with tweezers. I finished with top coat.
