NOTD / FRIDAY FAVORITES -- Design Seeds

Source.

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! This week's Friday Favorite comes to you compliments of my dear friend Steph from Imperfectly Painted. She's been pinning these little color schemes on Pinterest for a while now and I finally decided to see what they were. Design Seeds is a website that features new color palettes every day that can be used for inspiration.

Since color blocking is such a huge trend right now, I was immediately drawn to the Design Seed palettes for polish inspiration. My first attempt was using the {costumed} brights palette shown above. I actually had a lot of fun raiding my stash to find polishes that matched the swatches in the palette! Here are my results:
Chris was so excited to take a picture for my blog, and then complained that I'm not wearing my wedding rings. Men.. lol
And a close up.. because I can. :)
What do you think? I really like it! It's a bright and cheerful mani that's perfect for spring. :)

Polishes used are: Color Club Poptastic (hot pink), OPI Fly (teal), China Glaze For Audrey (mint/turquoise), essence Break Through (purple), and Revlon Charming (lavender).

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
