Peachy Polka Dot Nails

Hey guys!

Today I have a really simple and girly dotted manicure to show you!

When I sat down to paint my nails last night, I wanted something light and fresh, but still fun and interesting. I didn't have any real idea in mind, but I picked out some colours that I thought worked well together, and this peachy polka dot design was born!


To create this dotted design, I started with a base of Illamasqua Purity - a beautiful pale peach creme. This polish was actually a gift from my friend Rebecca a while back! It's a great shade and I'm really happy to have it in my collection.


After my base was just about dry, I used a couple of different sized dotting tools to create a variety of dots on all of my nails. The colours I used for the dots include China Glaze Peachy Keen, Wet 'n' Wild French White and OPI My Address is "Hollywood".

I actually found that My Address is "Hollywood" was a tad too dark for the look I was going for, so I mixed in a bit of white to lighten it a bit. I was much happier with that look.


I hope you enjoyed today's simple nail art design!

  8. I don't like peach but there's something about this mani that I love - I think it's the contrast of the cream and pink. Lovely xx

  9. Doubly excited about this! One, because this is a darling manicure - I love the bold design juxtaposed with the soft colours. Two, because I have been SEARCHING for the perfect peach creme polish that wasn't shimmery, wasn't too nude-toned or too dark verging into just orange, and wasn't $26 like Chanel's June which was the closest I'd found... and THIS is it!! Onto the wishlist with Illamasqua Purity! <3
