I'm usually not a fashion victim. Meaning, I don't typically follow most trends. I might see something in a magazine I like every once in a while and go out and try and find something similar, but still very me. I have been loving the neon trend going around, though. I've bought a couple of bright shirts and some nail polish. It's fun to wear something super bright, something that screams 'look at me!' But yesterday I went to paint my toenails and I just couldn't bring myself to whip out a neon. I wanted something more muted and a bit softer, but I couldn't really put my finger on what I was looking for. Then it hit me, I was in the mood for pastels. With all the acid bright colors going around, I had completely forgotten classic spring pastels. I dug through my collection and found a couple of colors that while they don't scream 'look over here!' they certainly murmur 'check out these digits' in an understated and more unique way.
Here are my spring pics for pastel nail colors and a hand cream to keep you fingers and toesies looking fresh:

Here are my toes. I'm wearing Planks A Lot by OPI. It was part of the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides collection from last spring. It isn't available in stores, buy you can still purchase it on Amazon.com.
I love the color. It's so fun and springy, yet really unusual.
And on my hands I am wearing Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mint Sorbet. This may be my fashion victim moment of the season. Mint is sooooo in right now.
I usually hate when bloggers post pics of their hands and they did a terrible job painting their nails, but that is what I have done. Sorry. I have such tiny baby nails right now. It's sad. I'm taking my vitamins and hoping they will grow out.
There you go, my spring nail polish post. I love nail polish so there will probably be more of these to come.
Thanks for stopping by!
