Nail Art: Aquatic Polka Dots!

Nail Art - Aquadots2I woke up yesterday morning and decided I needed a fun manicure. I started off with a white base (Ulta Snow White) and got out a few polishes and my dotting tool! While I had originally thought I’d be doing some sort of patriotic mani, I ended up going in a completely different direction and just sort of went with it.

I used butter LONDON – Artful Dodger, LEX cosmetics – Atlantic, Milani – Dressmaker, Essie – Licorice, Essie – Where’s my Chauffeur, and GOSH – Holographic Hero.

I’m really kind of loving this manicure – it’s fun and different. It reminds me of mermaid scales. I really like the look of overlapping polka dots, plus it’s fairly fool proof for the nail art challenged (read: me!). I even like where the colors slightly bleed, I think it makes it look like raindrops 🙂

Happy Monday!
