Purple Dot Leopard


Happy Sunday polished world!  Have you entered the giveaway yet??  It's a super rainy weekend here!  It's okay though, I needed a weekend where I just stayed home and chilled inside.  It's been quite relaxing.

Today I am sharing a random manicure I did a week or so ago.  I was tired, needed to paint my nails, and wanted something simple.  What's more simple than a leopard print and polka dots?  Nothing...nothing at all!

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Lotus Begin
  • FingerPaints - Silver Bells
  • Orly - White
  • Orly - Liquid Vinyl
I'm so happy Lotus Begin is part of China Glaze's core collection at Sally Beauty.  I missed this color last year when it was released as part of the City Flourish collection and I was kicking myself ever since.  I read reviews that it had a poor formula and it was an average color, but I don't agree with any of that.  It applied evenly for me in three coats.  I could have gotten away with two, but I was very light on my first two coats.  It's such a gorgeous lavender purple which my collection truly was lacking.  I know, hard to believe since I own so many purple's, but it is.  The only lavender that is slightly similar to this is OPI You're Such a Budapest, but that has a light shimmer, and it's a hint lighter purple.  Similar....not the same! 



FingerPaints Silver Bells is a polish I am getting so much use out of.  This polish was part of their Winter Wishes collection.  As a silver microglitter though, it has so many uses beyond the holiday season.  That whole collection is a perfect year round glitter one.  I hope they re-release some of the polishes so I can get my hands on them again.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Simple enough?  Should I dare to go simpler with just swatches?!

Until next time, <3
