And here it is… The Face Shop’s Check Check Nail Kit #01 – Pastel Check. This is a beautiful kit! I love it more than the first one, so I’m glad I used the brights first and saved the best (pastels) for last. This one actually surprised me because I thought I would like the brights much better since I am not too big on pastels, but this is really an astonishing kit!
As I mentioned back in February, I ordered these kits on eBay from Korea. However, I wanted to wait to do these pastels for Easter and Spring.
This polish was harder to apply than the brights kit (#02), since the polish was more like a watered down creme polish rather than sheer like the brights. The sheer polishes from the brights were so easy to apply, but these were a bit trickier. It was still very easy to use; I just had to take more time to apply it and be more careful. It was hard to determine the right amount of polish to put on the brush to make a nice flowing stripe.
I did not use a white base this time again (as I recommended for the brights) because this polish had excellent coverage. It didn’t require me to do two coats on the first step as I did with the brights.
I applied the white line to my nails again to complete the look. It looks much better with the pastels since it blends in better together.
