Today I bring you pastel striped nails. I got this lovely, pale, almost turquoise blue from Claire’s Accessories. From the moment I bought it, I knew it would pair well with white, so from that thought I created this look.
Claire’s Accessories have an incredible range of different colours and textures including cremes, holos, neons and glitters. It’s a brand that I never thought to try before, mostly because I hadn’t been to Claire’s since I was a kid! But I was very impressed with what they have to offer.
These nails sort of remind me of those old school, paper bags for sweets. So to enhance that nostalgic feeling, I topped it with a Matte top coat from Rimmel. This top coat is ah-mazing! To be honest I haven’t tried others but I don’t feel the need to because this does everything I want it to. The brush makes it easy to apply, dries in no-time and the matte effect is fully achieved.
I think the sweet, retro feel is so cute and I’m completely obsessed with the smooth but wonderfully matte texture.
