Manicure of the Month


For this month's manicure, I decided to do fun polka-dotted nails.  I've done this before with a turquoise base & white dots, but wanted to try shades in a similar color family this time.   If you don't want to buy the nail art pen, you could use a polish you already own and dip the end of a toothpick into it to create small dots.  Just make sure the spots are completely dry before putting on your top coat so they don't smear.  Also, don't worry if they aren't completely symmetrical or the same size - I think it's more fun with a little variation!


Products I used:
Essie A Crewed Interest (loved the color, but this formula is really streaky - Revlon Peach Petal is a similar shade to try), Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen Hot Pink, Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Love the colors!! p.s. a bobby pin works really well for polka dot nails - pull it apart and use the tip with the rubbery plastic piece.

so very cute, but I can never do manicure myself! It's either going to be smudged or sloppy...
Great job!

Thanks for letting me know about the streaky-ness of a Crewed Interest. I was tempted to buy it the other day but held off. I'll have to keep looking for that perfect pink peach :(
