Hobby Polish Bloggers Presents: Dusty Colors (feat. Powder Perfect + Carpe Noctem Cosmetics)

If you are in the facebook group, you probably remember me waxing poetic about doing a dusty baseball themed manicure for this prompt...well I forgot until about 15 minutes ago. This is what a month of kids softball and birthdays will do to your brain, guys. But I did do something subdued and sparkly and kinda pretty, so that is something at least.

Hobby Polish Bloggers Presents: Dusty Colors (feat. Powder Perfect + Carpe Noctem Cosmetics)

For this simple, quick manicure I kept my palette pretty muted and dusty. I was lucky that I had two shades that were just itching to be paired together right on my desk. With my dotting tool, I drew some sloppy, lazy flowers and filled in the space with some dots. Because dots are cool now.

Dusty colors are actually among my favorite of all the colors. Don't get my wrong, I won't kick a good neon out of bed, but these muted tones were just made for my soul.

Do you have a favorite muted color? Let me know below! And in the meantime, check out some other awesome bloggers and their interpretation of "dusty".
