Week 06: Dots

This week’s challenge was to make a design utilizing dots. It’s pretty self-explanatory. I’m going to go ahead and direct you to Jenn’s nails, which are amazing.

week 6 dots 2I loved how these nails turned out, and I got lots of compliments on them at my winery tour class (yes, my tuition dollars are going towards me drinking all day for three Fridays).

The base color is China Glaze’s Crimson, which is a very deep purple. The formula is a little off – it bled pretty badly into my cuticles and required a lot of clean-up – but other than a few smudges I made myself, this was a one-coater, which I appreciate. The wings were China Glaze’s Cosmic Dust (the silver holo) under a sweep of China Glaze Liquid Crystal (the sparkles). Super shiny!

The body of the dragonfly is Ruby Wing’s Poppy, which I received in my last Birchbox. This nail polish actually changes color in the sunlight, so it was perfect for Friday, which was such a lovely day.

This is what it looks like darker, which was also very nice. The polish starts out super hot pink, but darkens nicely in the sun. Here’s a side-by-side comparison for you.

I don’t have any high quality shots of my full hand, but my stress over finals and graduation is causing some serious chipping and crumbling – I’m down to nubbins, through no fault of my own. Sadface.

I bought a bunch of Zoyas, so I should have some fun manicures using those as soon as I get them in the mail!
