You are so not on point! Pastels are only for spring time ... I disagree!

Powdery pastels were seen across the fall/winter fashion runaways in hues of pastel pinks, blues, mints and hints of peach.

Here's how to wear pastels on your nails in the winter time and make it seem like that is where they belong.


For this manicure, you need a good white base polish, I chose Essence Wild White Ways.

3 different pastels - Catrice Lilactric, Peach Love & Harmony, Zoya Rayne.

Also a fun stamping plate with snowflakes, I choose QA86 and a pastel pink stamping polish BPS Pink.

I also choose some simple white round pearl studs.


Step 1: Apply white base nail polish.

Step 2: Apply your first pastel polish. I used the dry brush technique - you can use the brush in the polish or an extra one. All you need to do is wipe off any excess polish from the brush and then gently brush it over the nail. Even if you think all the polish is gone there is always a bit more left so you can make a nice streak.

Step 3: Apply the second polish, it is best to not make all the lines in the same spots so the nail art gets some dimension. Also the white base gives the pastels some extra life.

Step 4: Apply the third polish.

Step 5: Apply the bright pink stamps of snowflakes. I like how they blend into the background.

Step 6: Clean up the edges of your nails. Also add the small white round studs in the center of each snowflake to make it seem like they are falling.


Here is the end result. I like how low key and simple they look from far away - but when you come closer you realize all the intricate details inside.

Are you ready for winter? I must admit I already miss the summer sunshine.
