It's a dotty kind of day manicure

Hi ladies! Here's a quick mani I did last night. I had a freehand heart manicure all imagined but the hearts just didn't work out at ALL so I took it all off and did some trusty polka dots. I am slightly obsessed with polka dot manis!

What I used:

Pink and index fingers: I used 2 coats of Ulta 3 black satin and then stamped full polka dot image from Konad plate m79 using Konad Special Polish in white. I topped it off with a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust.

Ring fingers: I started off with 2 coats of BYS Pink with a Punch. I then added 1 coat Catherine Arley 670 (a gorgeous light pink holo!) and 1 coat Essence nail art special effect! topper in 01 purplicious. Both the Catherine Arley and Essence topper were both given to me by lovely Christina =D

Middle fingers: I used 2 coats of Ulta 3 lily white as a base. I then stamped bow with hearts design from Konad plate m76 using China Glaze Admire and added a silver rhinestone. Topped it off with a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust.

Thumbs: I used 2 coats BYS Pink with a Punch and then stamped full polka dots image from Konad plate m79 using Konad Special Polish in white. I topped it off with a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust.

Here's a close up of the Essence nail art special effect! topper in 01 purplicious. It applied really well and I love the square pink and purple glitter!

I was playing around with my sister's DLSR and the pic below shows just how nice the holographic effect of China Glaze Fairy Dust gives as a topper. I love Fairy Dust and EVERYONE NEEDS IT IN THEIR COLLECTION!! XD

Thanks for looking as always! Aussie ladies, don't forget to enter my Scunci hair giveaway here!

    @Beauty Soiree: Hehe glad you like them too! Instant cuteness xp

    @Jette: I don't wear black polish too often but with pink it tones it down a bit I think like you said!

    @Floor Daasvand: Glad you like it!

    @Moni: LOL now you mention it was a LOT of coats haha! I probably did spend a lot of time on it oops xp I do do my dots freehand from time to time but they end up weird shaped too so don't worry! The plate just saves me time!

    I'm experimenting with black cremes, still haven't found my favourite yet. Ulta 3 one is ok though! 2 coats only.
