Since seeing the Pastels Collection on Face of Australia's twitter I was dying to get my hands on some of the shades. Surprisingly though, the Priceline I went to had no Face of Australia stand. I eventually found them at a Kmart but they only had a couple of shades left. I ended up picking up 3 shades. The first one I decided to try is the gorgeous pastel creme Would you like some orange sherbet? I love this pretty, pale orange.
This shade is quite sheer. It took three coats before opaque colour was achieved. Two coats left the nail showing through. I then applied one coat of OPI RapiDry. I painted my nails last night and sadly I have already gotten a couple of chips in the polish (and I haven't done much to cause it). Honestly though, that is pretty normal for me. Polish just doesn't last on me.
I really love pastel colours on my nails. I find it a way to wear colours that aren't too bright or overpowering. I can't wait to try the other shades I purchased and possibly try to pick up some more shades.
Have you tried any shades from the Face of Australia Pastels collection? What did you think?
Any suggestions for a new base coat and top coat?
