Easter Week: Decorating

Hey guys!

I love Easter, despite the fact that in the southern hemisphere, it is meant to be celebrated in the second half of the year, but I digress. I love that everyone has another excuse to spend time with their family and eat food. Being that my name is Pastelsparkles, I also really love that pastels are a big part of this time of year. I feel quite in my element among the mints, lilacs, and pale pinks. I wanted to share a little bit about how I plan to decorate my life for this holiday, and hopefully it’ll serve as a bit of inspiration if you’re feeling like you need a bit of Easter in your every day.

Cinderella Week: Nails!

The Australian premiere of the live-action Cinderella is this Thursday and I thought that it would be fun to have a Cinderella themed week! The first post is about my nails! I’m super excited for this movie! My boyfriend and I will be seeing it to celebrate 18 months together 🙂

Here are the nails: IMG_0768 I’m wearing Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Barracuda and topped it off with Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Snow Globe! Barracuda is my favourite nail polish shade. Its so soft but it catches people’s attention. I think that it is the perfect summer colour! Snow Globe is a perfect glitter top coat, the glitters shine green, silver and blue and I thought that it would be perfect for adding some magic to the nails.

Have you seen the movie or will you be seeing the movie?

Review: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Summer Pastels Collection

Screen-Shot-2015-02-21-at-10.10.36-pm

I finally received my Priceline cash back voucher from September and I thought that I might buy some new nail colours because I’ve been wanting to try something different. I’d been eye-ing off this collection for a while and I always liked the colours but I never bought anything. Priceline had a buy two get one free deal on the nail polish so I bought three of the six shades.

Here are the shades that I bought:

These colours are perfect for summer and spring or any time you feel like brightening up an outfit! I never wear yellow nail polish because I don’t think that it really suits my skin very well however I loved this pastel yellow and I thought I’d give it a go.

The yellow nail polish formula is actually the worst out of the colours that I purchased, its a bit thinner and you definitely need more than one coat to get the full opacity. I used three coats for my colour but it could have been fine with two. I do like the colour on me, which really is a bonus haha.

Both the green and pink colours have a nice consistency, both opaque and they aren’t streaky. All of these nail polishes have a great wear time and I still haven’t had them chip on me and I put this on my nails a week ago. I’ve always found that Sally Hansen nail polish has lasted best on me, compared to other drugstore nail polishes. I love the brand dearly and will recommend them to everyone because they are a great price for the quality and they’re almost always on sale!

If you can still find this collection, I would recommend it. The colours are fun and cute and perfectly match the weather in Australia right now haha. They’re really glossy and last a long time.

I hope that you are having a lovely day!
