So today is our last day house sitting for my parents, and while it’s been fun I must say I’m excited to be able to go home. I miss my polish collection! Never the less, it has been fun playing with polishes that aren’t my own. My Mom has some fun colors in her mini stash. So in honor of our last day, I’m going to share with you a fun polka dot mani I did using some of her colors.
Is it just me, or is anyone else getting excited for fall. It feels like we just really got Summer, and yet (thanks to working in retail–we’ve already started receiving our fall collection) I keep dreaming of Autumn months… and pumpkin spice lattes! I can’t wait for pumpkin spice lattes! But fall nail polish colors are calling me, and this manicure should hold me over a little while.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Cherry, Cherry, Bang, Bang — base color.
- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Bittersweet — Grey dots.
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Twisted Pink — pink dots.
- China Glaze White on White — white dots.
- Essence Gel Look top coat.
- Essie Good to Go top coat.
Please excuse some seriously dry cuticles… wow, I just noticed those as I went to post these pictures. That’s embarrassing! =/ Never the less, I’m loving this color combination. I did these polka dots using a bobby pin, as my dotting tools are still at my own house. It worked though! I know I shouldn’t be craving fall colors already, but man…. look at them. So dark and rich. It’s hard not to when they’re so pretty!
Also, it’s the boyfriend’s birthday today (he’s 31! Which I find hilarious but I guess that’s cause I’m not 30 yet) so I must go smother him with love before I head to work. Just for fun, here’s a picture of the two of us from last Summer looking mysterious and just a little bit tipsy haha.
Enjoy your day my nail polish loving lovelies.
