Monday's Polka Dot Manicure

Currently listening to: Wild Horses by Natasha Bedingfield

Good morning girls!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend and, if you're in the UK, enjoying your extended weekend ;-)

Today I'd like to show you a very simple polka dot manicure I did featuring ELF Pearl and Easy Paris 90:

 

I think this is the first time I've worn the Easy Paris shade and although it's not a colour I would have chosen myself (it was a gift), I actually love it.  I would describe it as an orange-toned red packed full of shimmer.


Application was smooth.  What you see here is three coats.  Maybe some of you would only use two coats but I felt three were necessary to cover my nail line.
 

 I then used my dotting tool and Pearl to create a polka dot pattern.


The end result reminds me of Minnie Mouse :-)  What I really love about this manicure is that the finishes of the two polishes (one shimmer, the other pearlised) give my nails a satiny appearance.


What do you think girls?

Bye for now,
Laura

    1. I always think I should do dots more often when I do a manicure like this but then I end up thinking dots are too easy and therefore aren't always very impressive or special! Shame on me.
