31 Day Challenge, Day 11: Polka Dots

Welcome to day 11 of the 31 Day Challenge, Polka Dots! Before we get to the good stuff, let me just say, I'm so excited to be blogging and overwhelmed by the number of views I'm getting every day. I never even thought more than 10 people would look at my nails, let alone comment on any of my posts. I know most of you (if not all) are here because you see my little link under the great posts of all the other fabulous bloggers, and I just want to say thank you for clicking on that thumbnail and having a look at what I do :)

Now, back to business! Here we have a red franken that I did a couple of weeks ago, with a couple of random polishes that I have no recollection of. Then I painted a white fishtail-style tip and dotted the edge of it in white, creating a scalloped look. I added the red dots to the middle of the white dots to make it look eyelet-like. Clearly I have no trouble at all explaining this :D I hope you get what I'm saying.

I did the white dots on top of the red with a cuticle stick instead of a dotting tool, because I didn't want them too be too large. I'm not doing a lot of dotting manis because I have trouble keeping them uniform and in a pattern, but I'm pretty happy with this one. 

Again, thank you for stopping by, and I'd love to hear your thoughts on this mani! 


  1. These totally remind me of xmas, in a good way!

  2. haha, you're right! I didn't see it before, but now that you say it.. :D

  3. Wow, really pretty!

  4. I think this is really original, especially the nail tip. It almost looks like lace. And I found you through the challenge and I'll be following you after, you're very talented! ;)

    1. Thank you so much! You're so sweet!

  5. I really love the lacy look of these!
