300 followers! / springy dotty skittles

Last night I clicked over 300 followers! Thanks everyone. I've now gotten 104 new followers since starting my giveaway. That's a lot!
I'm happy to have all of you here at my little piece of the internet!

Today I'm going to show you some nails that are perfect for spring.
I wore these a few weeks ago which was a bit too early, but now is the right time!

Pastel polka dot skittles!

I really like the subtle look of the white stamping on these colors, but I wish I had a better white stamping polish. I might have to spring for the Konad one eventually.

Here's what I used:

Joe Fresh - Faded Violet
Essie - Turquoise and Caicos
Wet N Wild Wild Shine - Tickled Pink,
China Glaze - For Audrey
Icing - Mint 2 Be
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - White On
I stamped with Bundle Monster BM19.

I've decided that a good goal for polish-buying this month is to buy less polishes than there are days in the month.
And so far it isn't working. Today is the 4th, and I already have 4. (Actually, I had these 4 on the 2nd.)

This is my first Sally's B2G1 haul. China Glaze White On White and Liquid Leather, and Nina Ultra Pro in Purple X-ing.
I needed a better quality black and white really badly, but I was waiting for a deal like this to come along to get them.
And I haven't swatched the Nina yet, but from what I an see in the bottle, it seems like a dark purple version of OPI Teenage Dream. Exciting!
I'm sure I'll be back to Sally before long...

And the fourth I bought was a bottle of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Invisible.
I needed this because if you use Seche Vite when you're trying to place multiple stones, it dries before you can get them all on! So I'll be using this to place the stones and then Seche Vite to seal them.

I noticed that this bottle of Xtreme Wear has a sticker with the name on top. I wish they all did! I have so many of these damn bottles and it would be convenient to have names on top!

I broke a nail really badly this morning getting into my dad's truck to go to work :(
Always the same nail too!
I guess I'll have to cut them all down now. Boooooooo.
