Hi guys! Today's post is the first post in a very long time with very short nails.
Don't worry, my nails grow fast, but for now they are nubs!
(I don't really mind them, though.)
Today's theme is Polka Dot Nails.
I already did polka dots on the Black and White day, not realizing I would have to do more a few days later!
Those were uneven polka dots, so today I wanted to do more evenly spaced polka dots.
Before I show you the mani, let me show you the polishes I used.
These adorable polishes were sent to me by my saucy Danish friend Line.
The same girl who sent me the Gosh Holographic for my giveaway! (Which ends tomorrow night, by the way!)
These are just the cutest. And so perfectly "me." Hello Kitty and animal print!
There is a third that is purple, but it is in a different bottle, and I'll show you that one another time.
Thank you so much Line! I love them so much!
I'm thinking they meant to spell that "Coral" but either way, I'm not really sure what coral has to do with blue polish. (H&M must have poor English translators. Corall Summer? Pink Paradies? Wawawoom?)
Pink Summer is a lovely creme pink, not very unique but very pretty. The formula is good - a bit thick but not unmanageable. Almost covers in one coat but you need two for perfect opacity.
I wish these came in every color.
Corall Summer is an aqua blue creme, again not very unique. The formula on this one is less thick, and it needs 2 coats to cover.
Don't you love how the bows match the opposite bottles? And the lids? So cute!
Now, if you're not sick of my short nails yet, I'll show you my dots mani!
Tiny dots! Very tedious.
After finishing this mani, I really feel like I have done this before, but I don't think I have! I looked through my posts with the "dots" tag and I can't find anything.
Even if I potentially did it before, I still love it! Haha.
I did this mani with a small dotting tool, which seriously helps get the dots even. If you love polka dot manis but hate trying to make them even, invest in some dotting tools! You can get them really cheap on ebay.
See those two black dots on my middle finger? They came off my Seche Vite brush. Annoying!!
I think I might have just remembered why these look so familiar, I did the same color combo before in a crackle mani. Maybe that's it...
I wonder how long my nails will be by the end of this 31 day challenge! We'll have to wait and see...
