For this challenge I selected pastels, sadly not 'fruit pastles' but maybe that's an idea for a future mani?!
I've used Models Own Beth's Blue, Lemon Meringue, Jade Stone, Lilac Dream and an unlabelled / unnamed Models Own (which is peachy nude) then I've used my matte effect top coat from Rimmel. All five colours look great as they are but to be honest I much prefer them when matte. They remind me of chalk the kinda chunky chalk you'd get in a school or nursery. my camera has given them a slight sheen, I'm guessing because the nail surface is smooth but in real life the top coat really does what it say on the tin (bottle)
