Easter Manis, Day 1: Polkadots! and Friday's Shoes

Good Afternoon Lovelies!

( I woulda had this up earlier but as many of you probably know, Blogger was having picture issues, so none of my pics were showing up, sorry)

Today, again, is a crazy day, so I'm gonna rush through this...

Base is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in "Whirlwind White".

Then I used a toothpick to make dots using Diamond Cosmetics "Tranquility", OPI "Do You Lilac It?", and China Glaze "Secret Periwinkle".
Index nail had to be cropped out cause of a weird fuzzy looking thing that was stuck to my nail when pics were taken.  Didn't notice til I was editing them, and it looked weird, so I just cropped it out!

I got more compliments on this mani, than any mani I have every worn!



For those of you who wanted my tattoo-ish (bird) shoes from Friday go HERE
I recommend Googling the shoes brand and name though, I think I got mine way cheaper somewhere else!

And for ShortNails who wanted to know about these:

They are Bongo brand and I got them a few years back from Kohls.
Hope that helps!

That's it for today guys!

Have a great day!

These are too cute!!
I can see why you got loads of compliments on these! The white you used is a perfect egg white - they look like (insanely well-done) decorated Easter Eggs :D
The polka dots are great - I always struggle with polka dots, even with a dotting tool.
Thanks for sharing :)

I love this mani, tell me? How long after you id the dots did you wait to put on a top coat?? When Ive done dots before, my dots would smear and "drag" if they were not fully dry? Thanks

This is adorable. I used to have a sunsuit when I was little that was white with polka dots in those shades. I loved those little one piece suits till you had to go pee! This makes a fabulous Easter manicure. I love polka dot manicures.
