MORE POLKA-DOTS! Pretty In Pink :-)

So, I loved my blue/white polka-dot mani so much that I did another one in pink, and added some fun stuff on my accent nail :-) Check it out!

with cartoon accent nail

I am loving this one

Base Coat: Rimmel Base/Top Coat
Base Color: Essie Secret Story (2 coats)
Accent Nail Base Color: NYC French White Tip (2 coats)
Polka Dots: same two colors!
Top Coat: Out The Door


Secret Story is a creamy, bright fuchsia. The first coat was somewhat sheer and a bit uneven; but after applying a second coat, it was opaque and beautiful! The formula is nice and thin, as most essie formulas are.  The NYC white polish was on the thicker side, as would be expected for a polish that is meant to be used for french tips :-) but two coats of it appeared smooth enough for my liking. :-)

 

I used my largest dotting tool to put on the polka dots, and used one of my nail art brushes (long, thin bristles) to outline my accent nail to achieve the cartoon look that I keep seeing as of late!

I only got one good picture of the finished accent nail - but I actually think I like the manicure better without the cartoon outline! What do you guys think?


I am so in to polka-dots lately!! :-) Let me know what you think in the comments :-)

  2. Stopping over from the North East Bloggers hop. Now, as a guy, this usually wouldn't do anything for me. But I have to say this was interesting. Why? Holy cow is that detailed. I really am impressed by you ladies that can do stuff like this on your fingernails!
