The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Pastels - Plaid Redo

Today's design wasn't planned.  I had a couple ideas of what I wanted to do for my last design for April but when it came to doing it I wasn't feeling it.  I wanted to play around with my nail art pens and then I was really liking the idea of plaid.  If you remember, my very first design for this group was a pastel plaid, today's is the same plaid with some little changes.

For my pastels I used my brand new Catrice Candy Shock polishes!  I was so excited to get this collection and it is all thanks to the fabulous Gin Shivers.  


I am so in love with this collection!  I am just upset that it has been raining and I couldn't get some pictures in the sun!
Index to Pinky - Vanilla Love, I Scream: Ice Cream!, Bring Me Peach and Play it Blue.

I was surprised with the thinness of these polishes.  I ended up applying three coats of each polish.  As you can see, Bring Me Peach and Play it Blue dry to a rubber finish...awesome!  I also think that BMP is the perfect orangesicle color!

Vanilla Love and I Scream: Ice Cream! have a stunning shimmer which would pop in the sun but is difficult to capture indoors.  And just look at that soft yellow of Vanilla Love!


I added my plaid using my BPS Nail Art Pen and my gold Sephora Nail Art Pen.


I decided that my pastels needed some sparkle, so I added a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust.



I wish all my nail art pens were like the gold one!  It is so easy to use and the perfect opacity!




I do love a nice plaid design and this one turned out great.  I still need to practice with the nail pens, or maybe get some that work the way I want!  I have some very special ones on the way to me....don't worry I'll share!

I have to say that the first month of the new NCC has gone great! I absolutely love the new challenge design and it seems that the other ladies do too!  May's theme is right up my alley and with all the new polishes I have I hope to come up with some awesome designs!
