I have missed a Monday or two, but I am back this week with a new challenge. This week we are doing Polka Dots. Yet another mani I have not tried. I wanted to do some thing a little different than just putting some dots on a plain base. I also wanted to step away from the Spring colors and get back to some of my favs. I have this wonderful blue called Blue Year's Eve from China Glaze. I decided to pair it with some silver. I used SH Extreme Wear in Celeb City. It's a great one coater. Not real good for stamping though :(
I applied 3 coats of Blue Years Eve, wish it was a one coater too, but it's not. I did a coat of SV and then taped off my nails diagonally and painted the lower half silver. I added my dots along the tape line in opposite colors then filled in with smaller dots and topped with a coat of SV. This would have looked better if my blue was a once coater like the silver. The thickness would have been more uniform. All in all, I say not bad for my first try. Thoughts?
Base Coat: Seche Retain
Base Color: China Glaze Blue Year's Eve

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I did not create this design. I saw it some where and couldn't remember where. But thanks to Nicole, now I know :) You can see the original design over at Nail Polish Wars. Thanks Nicole for bringing this to my attention and thanks for the great design :)
