I knew when I saw Emily Schuman of "Cupcakes and Cashmere" post this video tutorial on "Pastel Parted Nails" I would not be able to wait until my weekly Thursday night manicure to try to this! I tried it at home with two stronger colors {Essie: Cute as a Button and Smokin Hot} and although it was fun, it wasn't up to par with the pastel parted manicure. When I went to get my manicure Thursday (with one of my best friends) I think I actually took between 30-45 minutes to narrow the manicure down to two colors. There were so many combinations that looked great together, and it made me so excited for the endless spring/summer color possibilities. 

My friend got so annoyed with me that I allowed her to make the final decision:  Essie colors "Chinchilly" and "Raise Awareness". I decided the next time I try this manicure at home I will be taking Emily's advice and sticking to pastel colors. Click here to watch her video tutorial.
