Pretty in . . . .

Hi Readers!  Today's mani is pretty in . . .  PEACH!  I saw this really super simple mani on pinterest and despite being simple AND a pastel I was super drawn to it!  I don't know what's wrong with me these days I am loving light pastels! MEDIC!!!!!!! I just really loved this mani and wanted to do it BUT I didn't have this color nor did I feel like buying one because perhaps my love of pastels is just a brief momentary lapse in judgement.  Since I didn't have a light peace cream I decided to franken one lol!  Here's the really lovely mani that drew me to it like moth to a flame
I love the added matte topcoat to it, somehow it makes it appear more sweet and innocent.
I decided to name this franken Peach Pie Kisses not sure why just seems to fit lol!
As you can see though I had a dickens of a time trying to get consistent pics of this baby.  Sometimes I see a pink peachy sometimes I see an orangey pink!
I used a SUPER old NYC polish I had--I think it was like 10 years old--to make this franken so the formula was beastly lol!  Still for a one time or two or thee (if I am truly sick with pastelitis) it looks good
This is where the original design manifested from but I have to warn you that site has some fantastic stuff on it so don't blame me if you're stuck on there all day!

Have any of you caught the pastel bug?  Do you think there is hope for me?

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
