Pale Pink

| Nail Polish: L’Oreal Color Riche nail color in How Romantic |

As I stated in this post, pastels and I do not get along very well, and for good reason.  It just doesn’t flatter my olive-y skin tone.  In February I compromised by wearing minty pastel nails, which were on-trend but did not scream “I AM WEARING PASTELS!”  I decided to try pastel nails again with this pale pink shade, and I love it.  I really don’t even consider it a pastel… it is just a pretty pale pink that makes me look tan!  Definitely a win in my book.

[also, that gorgeous shimmery gold on my hand is a swatch of MAC Rubenesque, a makeup product I have been obsessed with for years now… you can probably see why from the stunning color!]

Have a great start to your week!

Color Clash: Pink and Red

| Pink: “Mod Squad” by Essie | Red: “Cherries in the Snow” by Revlon |

Sometimes you just have to break established fashion rules.  I don’t think I’m quite ready to wear red pants with a pink top anytime too soon; however, mixing clashing colors is actually tasteful on nails.  It’s bold and pretty without looking like you tried too hard (or not hard enough!) to be fashionable.

Hope your week has been off to a lovely start!
