Hello Loves! It officially feels like spring in GA. The air is warm, the flowers are blooming, and the world has a nice, yellow powder film on every surface. Welcome to pollen season in the South. With Easter right around the corner, I couldn’t resist breaking out a few of my pastel Lechats and my dotting tools.
I know I have been on a dot kick lately, but I just can’t help myself. I do love doticures. They’re so simple yet look so fun when completed. For this doticure, I used four LeChat Perfect Match colors: Happily Ever After, Butterflies, Angel from Above, and Pink Lady.
The colors freaked out my camera just a little when they are all in the same picture, so please note that they aren’t quite right in these shots of the complete manicure. The photo above was taken in direct sunlight with my iphone and is strangely closer to accurate. The photo below was taken in my light box with my Canon. My husband was playing around with my camera the other day and I suspect he changed a few settings that I failed to notice when I took these photos. I apologize for the weirdness. Same goes for the crazy skin tone in the swatch pictures, but the colors are right on my screen in those.
Now for the pure swatches. Happily Ever After is my perfect pastel yellow cream. I was asking around in a few facebook groups for yellow recommendations when a friend saw my question and knew this would be the right one for me. Thank you, Lynda! You were right!
Butterflies has been on my wish list forever it seems. I’m not sure why I never ordered it myself, but Kerri saw it on my list and sent it to me completely out of the blue (or purple, as the case may be). Butterflies is an incredibly pretty, red leaning purple cream. Thanks Kerri!
This next color holds a very special place in my heart. Angel From Above is a lavender leaning blue cream, and one of the few bottles of polish I have completely used up. I almost didn’t have enough left to swatch! I wore this color almost non-stop while I was pregnant with my youngest son. I was high risk and never knew when it would be “time” so I kept my nails blue for over a month. He turned 1 year old yesterday. :)
Finally, Pink Lady is a peachy pink cream that I picked up on a recommendation by Kim at Ten Little Canvases. Kim has never steered me wrong when it comes to colors!
Finally, one last freaked out picture of the complete mani. Again, I apologize for the photos that are not up to my usual quality standards. I almost didn't share them, but I love this mani too much to keep it to myself!
