31DC2015 Day 11: Polka Dots

Hi everyone!

Today’s 31 Day Challenge theme is polka dots. I was busy browsing nail blogs, actually looking for something for the tutorial theme, when I got side tracked and found this pretty dotticure on Lucy’s Stash. It was perfect for today’s theme!Painted Fingertips | 70s style dotticureI changed up the colours and decided to go with a 70s-inspired colour scheme. I used a base of Sinful Colors Kaki, then dotted with OPI Hot & Spicy and Sally Hansen Pacific Blue. Painted Fingertips | 70s style dotticure

I’m always too impatient with the slightly thicker polish of a dotticure and top coat too soon, so there were a couple of places where it smeared slightly but luckily not too bad. This is a strange colour combination that I wouldn’t usually have tried, but you know what? I love it! I really enjoyed wearing this on my nails, too! Painted Fingertips | 70s style dotticure

What do you think?Painted Fingertips | 70s style dotticureIn previous years, I did neon polka dots, and interlocking blue dots. I can’t decide which I like better between today’s look and the interlocking blue dots! Which do you prefer?
