Well hai there, wonderful simmers! It's been much too long since I've last updated, icky ick. However, I think this post will prove to be worthwhile. I'm starting a new feature called "Rexy's Favorite Things" that mixes things I love in real life with TS3. This one's about...you guessed it...pastel nail polishes! Aren't you smart for figuring that out? *Hands sandwich*
I'm SUCH a sucker for nail polishes in pale colors. I've got a little collection going, and I love each color so much I wanted to share them with you! Not only that, I've provided the color codes so you can duplicate the polishes in-game! All you have to do is click the "Color Numbers" button at the bottom of the Create-A-Style window in CAS and type the code into the "Hex" box. For the demo shots I'm using Aikea Guinea's Short Nails. The link given by MS3B no longer works unfortunately, but you can get it by clicking this. All polishes are modeled by my simmie Lynx (Mediafire version here). I know the nail polish bottles don't really look like they do in a magazine or something, but that's because I took pictures of them myself. :)
This is the one that started it all. I'd seen some girls in a couple of my classes who had this pretty, sort of seafoam green nail polish, and I really wanted some. I ended up finding this one by Revlon. It's so so pretty.
This is the second pastel I bought, and it very well may be my favorite. I love the name, I love the shade of blue, and I love how similar it is to Minted, even though it's powdery blue.
I'm actually wearing this one as I type! Definitely the most unique out of all my polishes. I had quite the time finding the perfect shade of yellow, but this one definitely does the trick. It's not brightly obnoxious like most yellows tend to be.
This is my newest pastel that I haven't had the chance to try on just yet. It's really elegant and delicate, and just the right kind of purple.
All of my pastels are flat polishes, i.e., there's no sparkly junk (I can't stand it). I'll let you in on a little Rexy secret when it comes to light colored nail polishes: They'll be much much brighter if you put a coat of white polish on your nails and let it dry first! It makes a huuuggee difference, especially with the yellow one.
...So do you ladies and gents enjoy pastel nail polishes (if you're a gent, it's quite alright to say no! Unless you're really into that sort of thing...hehehe)? Also, do you like this whole "Rexy's Faves" fandango, and should I keep doing it?
