Good afternoon! This post coming to you from my dad's office! We got hit with a tropical storm this morning here in Newfoundland and my power is knocked out.
My neighbor's tree messed up the power lines going into my house so I probably won't have power for a while.
Not wanting to mess up my 31 Day Challenge, I decided to head over to my dad's office where there is power and internet, and complete my post!
(I had other things I needed to do too, I'm not fully nuts. And the storm is over really so it isn't like I am out braving a storm. Haha!)
The theme for today's challenge is Dots. Long live dot manicures.
I took this manicure idea from Katy at Nailed It! Gradiated dots look really cool! Katy is a smart cookie.
I knew which colors I wanted to use for the dots but I had a hard time deciding on the base color. I felt like using my go-to nude again but that would be three times already in the challenge so I didn't wanna go there.
I looked into my Color Club drawer and I said "Screw it! I'm using pink!"
The blues are:
China Glaze - For Audrey
China Glaze - Shower Together
China Glaze - First Mate
And I used my fave pink:
Color Club - Peppermint Twist
I think the color combo is really unexpected and that makes it fun!
To create the dots, I used 2 different sized dotting tools. I started with the lightest color, and then the medium, and then the dark. I found it easiest to do the main dots all first and then go back in with the smaller ones to create an even dispersion.
iPhone pic! Sometimes I just love how my iPhone captures my manis.
What do you guys think of this simple-and-fun dot mani?
Thank you for the inspiration, Katy!
Hopefully my power will return soon... Adios!
