Nails of the Day - Dots and Stripes (Inspired by my Notebook)

Hey guys!

A bunch of us girls from Polish-aholics Anonymous are going to be doing nail art challenges to post on Mondays, and this week's theme is polka dots.

I may not be able to participate in every weekly challenge but with final exams today and tomorrow, I needed a simple design to do last night, and polka dots was perfect. And as I was writing up some study notes over the weekend, I found the inspiration for my polka dot mani - my notebook! Now it also has coordinating stripes on it and I wanted to add those in as well so I just did an accent nail with stripes.





(My inspiration)


Products:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
OPI - Suzi Loves Cowboys (base)
China Glaze - Flyin' High (teal dots/stripes)
Color Club - Soft as Cashmere (taupe dots/strips)
Orly - Green Apple (light green dots)
OPI - Who the Shrek Are You? (acid green dots/stripes)
Essie - Lapis of Luxury (powder blue dots/stripes)
Seche Vite Top Coat

Can't wait to see all of the other girls polka dot designs!

  22. Thanks so much everyone!

    Rebecca: Haha, yeah and I wasn't even entirely happy with one of the colours (Essie - Lapis of Luxury) and all I could think was "HOW DO I NOT HAVE A POWDER BLUE TO MATCH THIS BOOK!?" It turned out to look much more matchy in the photos though.

    Lú Rodrigues: Great job! I'm glad I could be of inspiration to you. :) I tried to leave a comment on your flickr post but I don't have a yahoo account.

    Alhrayth: Thanks! I appreciate that. :)
