The One With the Funky Dots and Colors

Nothing to Disclose 

Good morning Polished World!  How are you all on this fine Wednesday?  My whole week is thrown off because of the Labor Day Holiday.  I thought it was Monday all day yesterday, and I'm sure today I'm going to think it's Tuesday.  Hopefully I figure it out by Friday and don't show up to work on Saturday.  Speaking of work, as you can tell from my lack of posting, I've been a bit preoccupied.  I have so many posts to edit, and here we are in September and I have many summer-y looks still to post.

At least we are in early September and not late, so it's not too weird to be posting today's manicure.  Today's design is inspired by one I saw on Instagram.  And of course, I can't find the original link, so I apologize to whoever this was who gave me the inspiration.  If I find your page again, I will give you proper credit.  Regardless, there was something about the manicure that was so fun.  It got stuck in my head and I had to re-create it.

I apologize for the photos, they don't give the manicure justice.  The neons blew out the camera.

Let's take a look! 

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Lady and the Vamp
  • China Glaze - Let's Jam
  • China Glaze - Glow With the Flow
  • China Glaze - Lime After Lime
  • Color Club - Under the Black Light
  • ORLY - Skinny Dip
And look at me, remembering to post all the colors so when I came here to write the post, I didn't have to dig into the deep, dark crevices of my brain to figure it out.  As you can see, I used mainly my China Glaze neons to achieve the design.  All funky colors that normally i never would have used side by side.

Throw in a little negative space with some dots, you have a winner of a manicure.  I really am pleased with how the design turned out.  Many people thought that they were stickers, but nope, that was just my skills with the a dotting tool and a steady hand.  Seriously, my lines were low key perfect and I didn't even use tape.

What do you think?  Like this look??

Tomorrow I plan on going on an editing spree and getting some other designs out here.  I neeeeed to get back into blogging.

Until next time, <3.
