Nail Diaries: Gearing up for Spring

“Spring is here!  Spring is here!” cheered everyone…who didn’t live in Canada.

Here, in the Great White North, it’s winter.  Why do I say that?  Because as of today, five days into spring, it’s still snowing.  Not cool, right?  So instead of celebrating the arrival of spring, we’re just going to pour every inch of our being into hoping that it makes an appearance soon.  Part of that means denying that it’s still winter.  And what better way to do so than to wear spring on your nails…sort of.

I think this look is a perfect transition from a dull winter into a pastel spring.  And it’s really easy too!  No fancy-schmancy tape, or dotting tools; just polish and a steady hand.

First off, the nail polishes:


Both are from Covergirl’s Outlast Stay Brilliant line.  On the left we have #147 in Skylight.  And on the right, #230 in Golden Opportunity.

Now for this short, short process:

Step 1: Slather on a couple of layers of Skylight.  Let it dry completely.

Step 2: Uncap Golden Opportunity and brush off as much of the polish as possible on to the inside of the bottle.  Lightly and sporadically brush Golden Opportunity over top of the Skylight.  This will give you that patchy, splotchy effect.




And there you have it!  Easy, right?  So easy, in fact, that you didn’t even need step-by-step pictures (read: I totally forgot to document the process…sorry)!

A brief little explanation as to why I think it’s the perfect transition between winter and spring: the light blue is pastel-y, but more on the muted end of things.  And then the gold patches lift everything up…plus they remind me a bit of Easter :p

Here’s to Spring…being on its way!

’til next time,

Meg ❤
