The Lacquer Ring – Seafoam

Whoa, two back to back posts on the blog!? That’s right! This time I have our latest TLR post for you Seafoam.  This color is perfect for me not only because I have  A LOT of Seafoam green and blues, but because our car color was Seafoam Green! Before our Camry we,  had a Seafoam Green Altima. Don hated it! I got it just before we started dating so he basically had no say in the color! lol  I bought it used so I really didn’t either, but I loved it, of course! He always said it looked like toothpaste! 😦  In any event, I had plenty of options for this theme.

I ended up choosing Cirque’s Julep and I did an accent nail using Lime Crime’s Milky Ways and some polka dots with Julep.

So our Altima wasn’t quite this sparkly, I wish it was, but it was a gorgeous color

The Lacquer Ring – Dotticure

We are back with some dotticures! Although Frosso pointed out she picked this month even though I thought I did.. lol dotticures are one of my favorites to do, the color options and patterns are limitless. Oh did I also mention I am obsessed with Polka Dots, hence why I thought I picked this 😉

On Monday I have an interview!! So I wanted to mess around with some neutrals as I normally don’t do too many manis like that. Although I will probably put on something even more neutral, I absolutely love the way this came out!

I used OPI’s Gwen Collection for the most part, 4 In the Morning, Push and Shove, and Love.Angel.Music.Baby along with Essie Good as Gold and the base is China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around

I cannot say enough how much I love how this turned out… normally the ones I love you guys don’t and visa versa, lol so tell me what you think, and what’s your favorite dotticure color combo if you have one 😉

NOTD 114 – Blue Tuesday

With the President’s Day holiday yesterday and my work being closed, I keep feeling like today is Monday still.. Thankfully it’s not, that just means I am that much closer to Friday already! Woohoo!

Today I have a simple mani, almost too simple, the contrast I don’t feel is enough for pictures. If you know these colors and have ever put them together its enough contrast in person, however in pictures it keeps blending, so we will see what you think.

Overtop two coats of OPI’s Nail Envy, I painted two coats of “China Glaze – Dorothy Who”, I then with my dotting tools did two coats of “Essie – Aruba Blue” as a frame around all nails.

Well guys, that is all that I have for you today. Very quick post..

Day 11 Polka Dots – 31Challenge

I would like to start off with a brief review of the Cuticle Oil that I got in my most recent Julep box, since I used it when I did my manicure last night. It smelled very nice, wasn’t too greasy, and after I rubbed it on my cuticles & nails it seemed to soak in after about a minute or two. The next morning my fingers didn’t seem as dry and cracked as they normally are during the winter months. Overall I found the product very helpful so far. 🙂

For the Polka Dot Challenge Day , I went with a more Spring / Easter ( I know it’s early still but don’t worry I’ll change it again soon. For the Stripes day of the challenge I want to go back and do another St. Patrick’s look 🙂 ). Here is a close up of one hand.

And the final look.

To start the look I varied my base colors, I used “OPI-Too Pink to Hold em'” for the pink fingers and a clear on all of the mainly polka-dotted fingers. For the Dots I used “OPI’s – Planks A lot – Pirates of the Caribbean collection”,  “Revlon ColorStay – Bonsai”,  “OPI -Dating a Royal”, “Ulta – Celebutante”, my Pink listed above, and my Dotter Tools. For the full polka-dotted fingers I started out with scattered dots of the blue, then once dry, the Pink, and so on for the remainder of the colors. For the pink based/polka tipped fingers I used the “Celebutante” as bigger dots on the tip of my nails, then once dry I dotted a thin layer of the blue, the other purple, and then green.

What do you think of this Polka Dotted look? Have you bought and tried any dotting tools, if so what did you think?
