Pink Spring Nails!

This weekend happens to be the Cherry Blossom Festival and I was recently at Japantown which had all the cherry blossom trees in full bloom. So I was feeling like having more pink nails! Plus, I recently received my federal tax refund and splurged a bit on Butter London nail polishes and wanted to incorporate that too.

For the base color, I used Island Coral from Sinful Colors. It's a lovely coral pink creme polish that I have been loving for this spring. I then used Pa Nail Collective polish in Macaroon Orange or A129 as it's identified on the bottle itself, on top to create a pretty silvery shimmer. This polish is so sheer that it can only be used for layering, which is a bummer, but at least it's made my Island Coral even more awesome! Then I used Butter London's Tart with a Heart on my ring fingers.

It's a shame about the Pa Nail Collective polish. I bought it for $3.79 at Ichiban Kan located in Japantown. For the amount of product you get, the price is pretty steep. Especially since their other polishes such as the foils or the darker and opaque shades can be as much as $6 for same little bottle.

I am absolutely in love with the combination of the three polishes together though. It makes me cheerful to see it on my nails. I guess the beautiful weather today doesn't hurt either. I'm tired of cold rainy weather.


  1. Island coral is beautiful! such a nice polish.

  2. Great layering! This is a really beautiful mani and perfect for the season.

  3. Lovely combination! I am in love with Butter London polishes, this one looks gorgeous too! :-)

  4. Pink and blue based nail polish work well with fair skin as well.STC Technologies
