Pink and white polka dot manicure

Hi ladies! How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was pretty busy and I didn't even get much study done =S I had a whole load of housework to do and then I worked Sunday which was enjoyable. I know lots of people hate working weekends but I love it - it's just so much calmer with less people around. Plus I like to have weekdays off with the house to myself! I'm so not in the mood to study at the moment but I'm trying to will myself to get back into study mode. It's not working so far though lol.

So the manicure I have for you today was requested by my workmate who wanted to see pink polka dots. I love pink and polka dots too so she couldn't have suggested a better combination!

I started off with Ulta 3 Lily White for all fingers except my accent fingers. Ulta 3 is an awesome Aussie brand and I have to steer clear of the huge displays of them when I go shopping. I'm likely to buy a whole heap every time I see them so even the pharmacy (drugstore) isn’t safe for me to go near! I'm still trying to stick to my nail polish/shopping ban which seems to be working.
Lily White is a white creme polish that dries quite quickly to a glossy finish. As white polishes go, the application was decent - streaky on the 1st 2 coats and opaque and glossy by the 3rd. Below is 3 coats without topcoat and minimal cleanup.

I used BYS Pink Panic which I won from Krissy's giveaway on my accent fingers. BYS is another great Aussie brand whose quality is up there with well known international brands.
Pink Panic is a bright pink polish and it's gorgeous! Application was great and it was opaque in 2 thin coats. I wasn't a huge fan of the brush in this one but BYS brushes can be a bit hit and miss. It dried to a semi-matte finish for and below is 2 coats to get rid of VNL without topcoat.

I then konaded dots from Konad plate m79 using Konad Special Polish in psyche pink and white. After I put top coat on (Nailene Acrylic Strong if you're wondering), the white dots over Pink Panic turned light pink which was I thought was nice =p I also added a pink clay bow on my thumbs as the full plate designs are never big enough for my thumbs and I can't be bothered to double stamp!

What do you think? The boy didn't like it much but my workmate did! Thanks for looking =D

  14. Gosh that's just so cute!!! <3 Your bottle of Lily White must be one of the exceptional bottles, or you've just got really really really good application skills because whites never go on as smoothly for me as they seem to do for you!
    Coincidentally, I spent my lunch hour yesterday searching around the CBD for Lily White because I need a base colour for my sheer np shades. Pity I couldn't find any! :( The bins have been thoroughly raided this week.

  15. Thats a really cute mani.
    I have a few BYS nail polishes and i'm not overly keen on them :(
    they are watery, and streaky but I have gorgeous bright colours *sighs with disappointment*
    Really cute though ;)

  16. the clay bow makes it extra cute. where did you get the bow? i've been trying to find clay bows/ bow stickers/ or a nice bow nail stamp image plate..i have not found any of those yet =(

    i am afraid that some of the konad bow images are too big for my fingers..makes me sad =(

  19. Thank you so much for all the sweet comments ladies =)

    @Joan: I like to think the latter haha, but Ulta 3 can be a bit hit and miss with their formulas. Sucks you couldn't find any! Better luck next time.

    @Bev: I don't own that many bottles myself but the ones I've tried have been pretty good! They can be hit and miss. My bottle of cracked black polish has a REALLY dodgy brush.

    @Li Lian: I got the bow free when I bought some fimo clay from Ebay actually. I'm trying to find some more now! When I have time I'll email the seller and ask her if she has any to sell or where she got them from. I'll let you know if I find out anything!

    Ahhhh it sucks that the Konad bows are too big for your nails. Have you tried the bows from plate m3 though? They are on the smaller side and are very very cute too!

    @maRyya: Thank you for the award!
