Dotted Chocolate

You must be thinking... this trend-ish girl changes her nail polish like twice a week or what?  Well... yes!  I just get so fussy when they start cracking on the edges after  2 or 3 days.  I have seen lots of manicures with polka dots and I had to try it for two reasons: I like doing cute things to my nails and I LOVE polka dots!  This time I used two of my fave brands for nail polish: Bettina and Avon.  Both are so creamy and lasting.  
The following steps will help you select the perfect color to polka dot your nails:

1. apply a solid color (2 hands) - I used brown this time

2. on a sheet of paper spread the nail polish you just applied (2 hands also) 
and let it dry

3. select a few color you would like to use for the polka dots 
to see which one is the better match and let them dry

I selected the light blue cause it was the one that gave a pop of color to the dark brown shade.

love,
Teresa

  2. I like the polka dots on just one nail - it looks cute! I don't know how you did the polka dots but I always use the end of a bobby pin - then the circles are perfect!

  5. This is so cute! My nails always look hideous. lol Even when I take the time to polish them (like once in a blue moon), they chip a day or two later and I don't take the chipped polish off for like months! Haha!

  6. I love enhancing my nails with polka dots! Sometimes I do it on all of them, and sometimes I just do it on two of them (one on each hand). It's such a cute, girly way to fancy them up!
