31 Day Challenge – Day 11: Polka Dot Nails

Hi everyone!

Today we start off with the patterns section of the challenge – this is the part I have been looking forward to the most! For my polka dot mani, I followed this tutorial done by The Crumpet. The main difference is that mine doesn’t look nearly as neat, haha! But at least it was fun and summery 🙂

I started off with 3 coats of Tip Top Nail Chic Cream Puff. It’s a lovely, soft white, but it is pretty sheer so 3 coats are necessary to get it looking decent. Here it is on its own:

For the polka dots I used 4 different colours: Sinful Colors Innocent (green), Essence Colour & Go Flashy Pumpkin (orange), and Nails Inc Holland Park (purple) and Kensington Park Road (blue).

This has made me warm up to neon polishes as well… they’re happy!

Tomorrow’s theme is stripes, come back to see what I’ve done 🙂
