Spots and Polka Dots (Manicure)

So since I did stripes the other day, I thought it would be appropriate to show spots some love today. Here are some spotted designs I did a while ago. :)

First up is some black and white polka dots. I loved how these turned out, it looked so nice!

The only hard part about this design is that it can be very time consuming. It can also be tricky to get the dots evenly spaced, but it just takes lots of practice.

Toward the end of summer, I also did this blue leopard print manicure.

To do this, I started off with a light blue base coat. Next, randomly place some dark blue dots of different sizes. After they're all dry, take a sharpie, nail art pen or a brush to paint little squiggly "c" shapes around the blue dots.

So that's it for today. I'm off to Boston early tomorrow morning, so I don't know how long it will be until I do another post. I've been saving some reviews/hauls about some nail polishes two of my friends gave me, so maybe those will be next. :)

P.S. My nails have grown SUPER long lately, I'm talking almost a centimeter beyond my fingertips. They look beautiful, I love them! They're the longest they've ever been in my life. Bad news is that I have to take off all my nail polish off because I need an MRI on Monday. My nails tend to break if they're this long and don't have polish to protect them, so I'll be filing them down. Boo! :( But I figure if I file them a little it's better than if they break and have to file them a lot. Good news is that I took an awesome picture of the manicure I'm wearing now so you can see it and my nails around Christmas time! Can't wait to show off this one, it looks so cool! :D
