Back With Bubbles

Currently watching: Dawson's Creek

Hello girls!

My last exam was yesterday so now I'm back! In my absence I actually cut my nails and then painted them only once (more on why in another post) so here's the manicure I came up with:

I used Kiko 338 and Accessorize Lilac Sorbet

After painting the base colours, I used my dotting tool to put dots in the opposite colour and then used a smaller dotting tool apply the base colour again.

It wasn't an entirely successful manicure as the *bubbles* remained raised even under a top coat and I couldn't decide whether they looked nice or just strange.

What do you think girls? Would you try something like this yourself?

Bye for now,

    @Paint That Nail, thanks :-)

    @Thenailaholic, good to know :-)

    @Lydz, thanks!

    @Marie, thanks :-) Although I think that's one of the reasons I didn't love it, because my nails were short.

    @Alice, thanks for such enthusiasm!

    @The Girlie Blog, aw!

    @Sara, yay, freedom!

  15. @Whimsicalglam, yep, done for now but not for long! Glad you like the colours :-)

    @Peredita, thanks :-) I look forward to seeing your version of this soon!

    @Fingers, noooo, it just takes a couple of manicures to learn how to dot well! Don't give up!
