Pastel Petal Skeletons - L'Oreal Versailles Romance Nail Art

Today I have some quick and easy nail art featuring three of the polishes from the L'Oreal Paris Versailles Romance collection. The polishes in the collection are kind of bright-pastels, in that they aren't washed out but are still somewhat soft.


I began with a base of L'Oreal Pistachio Dream, a cool minty green. There is a bit of shimmer to it as well but unfortunately it didn't really translate to the nail. I love this shade and actually wore it alone for a day before adding this nail art on top!

Then, using my nail art brush, I freehanded on the floral outlines with L'Oreal Lacey Lilac. You guys know I have a weakness for this type of purple and Lacey Lilac is a great one. Finally, I used a dotting tool to add some dots using L'Oreal Creme Puffs. They are kind of hard to see in these photos but they showed up nicely in person! Creme Puffs is an off-white bone shade, a color that has been very popular lately (and that I'm totally crazy about!).

I love the simplicity of this floral and the "petal skeletons." The polishes worked nicely for nail art. Much like the last time I used L'Oreal polishes, I found myself wondering why I don't use them more often! These were released a few months ago but you may still be able to find them in your local drugstores.

What do you think of this floral look?
