Pastel blue nails are my jam. I’ve had my nails painted the same shade (Sugar Fix by Sally Hansen) for about a year now, but when I saw the limited edition Sweets For My Sweet set, mainly that powder blue, My Boy Lollipop, I pretty much lost it.
Pastel blue is my idea of a neutral. I wear a lot of black, grey, and jewel tones, and it serves as a simple surge of energy for any outfit. I like the way it contrasts with red lips, and I think it makes me look slightly tan.
It’s a color that, in my mind, flows through every season. It’s akin to clear skies at the beach during spring and summer and those chilly, but sunny, days during the colder months.
My Boy Lollipop is a couple shades lighter than my beloved Sugar Fix. For my latest mani, I painted three thin coats of it without a base or top coat, and the formula lasted four solid days with no chipping.
Sugar Fix typically lasts me seven days without chipping, but four is still really, really good.
For such light colors, none of the shades in this set streak on my nails, and each coat dries quickly.
My favorite shades from Sweets For My Sweet are Candy Girl (pastel pink), All Day Sucker (pastel lavender), My Boy Lollipop (pastel blue), and Sweet Pea (pastel green).
The six polishes in this collection look lovely together, and I’ve been getting a ton of compliments on my Jordan almond-inspired manicure.
I haven’t painted my nails this many colors at the same time since I was a kid, and I’m actually loving it. It gives me shades of pastel goth, and I’m really digging the subtle shift between the shades on each nail.
Do you have a color you reach for all year, or do your tastes change with the seasons?
