Spring is in the air! Striped Spring nails

It's officially SPRING in Australia!!! WOOT!! I just love Spring as it's not too hot and not too cold - perfect for my temperamental skin. It also means bright colours, pastels, pretty dresses and pretty heels!! I don't really follow seasons when it comes to my manicures (I wear brights in Winter and dark colours in Summer!) but the start of Spring calls for pastel polishes to be broken out. Not like I EVER need any excuse to haha. Here's my striped Spring manicure to get you in the mood for warmer weather!!


For my pinkys, I used 2 coats of China Glaze Light As Air; for ring fingers I used 3 coats of OPI What's with the Cattitude; for middle fingers I used 2 coats of China Glaze Lemon Fizz; for index fingers I used 2 coats of China Glaze Peachy Keen and thumbs I used 2 coats of China Glaze Something Sweet. PHEW!!

I then used Kiss nail art striper in white to draw about 4- 5 vertical lines on each nail and added a corresponding coloured fimo slice. You can check out my fimo tutorial here.



If you'd like to find out how I achieved this look, you can check out my step by step tutorial for this manicure which I did as part of the 2threads Dove Diaries campaign as their featured beauty blogger this week!


What's your must have colour for Spring this year? Thanks for looking as always ladies!! =) Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Hi Chelle, your nails are super cute for spring. Unfortunately it's fall for us in Canada now. For spring I like pastel colors, but I can only wear the ones with a little bit of a shimmer finish vs creme. For fall I like cranbery and dark earthy green and blues. No griege for me because it washes me out too much. Thanks for sharing this fun spring look.

  13. Beautiful! One of my good friends was recently in Australia and everyone apparently thought she was nuts walking around in shorts and a tank top, lol! I guess your winter is a bit warmer than our (Canadian) summer!
