Lavender Ladylike Nails


There is always a soft spot in my heart for nail art. I can’t resist a pretty new manicure, especially with a nice pastel shade. Lavender has always been one of my favorite shades, so I thought it was time to bust out a gorgeous shade given to me by my friend Emily. She shared my love of nail polish, and this one reminds me of her. She passed away a few months ago, so I wanted to pay tribute to her.

Here is the pretty look that I created!

Here is what I used to create this springtime nail look:


"Lily" by Revlon

Rhinestones and Pearls

Rhinestones and Pearls from eBay

As mentioned above, my rhinestones and faux pearls were purchased from eBay. THe Revlon polish can be found at most drugstores, and I believe they still carry the same “Lily” shade.

I painted a coat of Sally Hansen “Hard as Nails” base coat, then did a coat of “Lily”, and waited for it to fully dry. Then I painted a coat of CND shellac top coat and applied the rhinestones and pearls. I put my nails under my shellac UV light for 3 minutes, then removed the sticky residue with alcohol. I LOVE my UV light, it makes my nails dry instantly.

What do you guys think of this look? Isn’t it cute!? I may be biased, but I thought it was adorable.


Til next time!
