Bow Manicure - Inspired by CaseyLane Loves Polish

9:00:00 AM

Hi polished world!  How are you on this fine Saturday morning?  I'm doing well, especially since I'm now able to share some of the manicures that I have been dying to share for so long now.  It's kind of bittersweet though since the manicures are awesome but the pictures aren't as great as I remember.  Maybe that's because my pictures are changing now that I'm in the lightbox and these are outdoor photos?  Who knows.  Just know I'm not 100% happy with the photos.

This manicure was inspired by one that my dear friend Casey from CaseyLane Loves Polish did before she started blogging.  I fell in love with the bow dotticure and HAD to copy.  The dots and bows went together so well with the amazing teal color.  I put it on a list of must do manicures then never got around to it.  After being out of ideas one night, I remembered this amazing manicure and decided it was the perfect time do try it!

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • OPI - Can't Find My Czechbook
  • Orly - Liquid Vinyl
Adorable right?  The best part, the manicure looks extremely time consuming, but it really wasn't!!  To get the bows, I started off with a base coat of OPI - Cant Find My Czechbook, the most gorgeous dusty teal ever.  I'm so happy I purchased this polish despite having two colors which are practical dupes of it.  In my opinion, you can never have too many teal polishes.  When the base was dry, I create a large circle in the center of the nail with a dotting tool.  With a nail art brush, I drew the rest of the bow coming off the side of the circle.  After the bow was dried, I used my nail art brush and added the detail to the bow with black polish.

During the bow dry time, I dotted all my other nails using the random sizes of dotters.  Since I stink at the normal polka dot, and loved how Casey's nails looked, I did the many random sized dots all mixed together on the nail.

What do you think?  Liking the bows and dots?  Loving the color choice?

So happy I finally got to share this cute manicure with you all today!!!  Hope you have a great one!

Until next time, <3.
