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
