40 Great Nail Art Ideas…Pastel nail art

{Press Samples}

Today’s nail art is for this week’s Crumpet’s Nail Tarts challenge. This week’s prompt is to do pastel nail art. My assigned technique is watercolor. I’ve never done a watercolor mani before so this was completely new territory! I used four Zoya polishes, all of which were originally sent to me as press samples: Daisy, Rayne, Eden, and Tiana. To help keep the colors as true as possible, I started with one coat of Morgan Taylor All White Now. I used a cosmetic sponge to dab the four Zoya colors in random spots on my nails. Here’s what I ended up getting:

I definitely should have used a lighter pink, but otherwise I’m kind of liking what happened here.
