Nails of the week: Spotty blue and yellow

blue and yellow spotty nails - somanylovelythings

It had been a while since I had a spotty manicure on. I’ve been meaning to do one for ages, and this week I finally got round to it!

I went for a pastel colours version: blue and yellow. This blue, Oxford from Nails Inc, has been a favourite for a very long time. The yellow came in the same set, and is called Wimbledon.

I used my one of my dotting tools to get the dots close to perfect (they never are!). Overall, a very easy mani to do, and very cute.

The polishes apply ok. As they are a bit on the old side, they stained a bit. I used two coats of the blue and three of the yellow.

Extra shine was given with the Seche Vite topcoat and durability is always fantastic with Nails Inc polishes!



Nails of the week – warm colour dots

Well, I went dot crazy. Truly crazy. It started as a desire to create a fish scales effect, but it just looked wrong as I was using warm shades (in my crazy head). So I went out of order and out of control, and created something I am not sure I like or not.

Still, I stuck with it for the week and was even asked if I was wearing foils! Kinda got used to it.

Anyway… I used Barry M foil effects in gold and the dots are Leighton Denny’s orange Hanky Panky,  a shimmery yellow from H&M and  Colorama’s red 40 graus.

I applied the gold as base and used three different sizes dots from my dotting tool set in the other colours… I finished with a topcoat.
