MSMD: Pastel Skittles and Black & White Polka Dots

Monday, May 27, 2013

Hello everyone! For today's Monkey See Monkey Do post, I'm recreating a manicure by Kayla from Nails by Kayla Shevonne. Its her post on Pastel Skittles and Black & White Polka Dots. I chose this specific manicure because I've never done a skittles design before and the colors are perfect for the season right now. Plus, it looks like a pretty straight forward design that I can do well in recreating.

Starting from with my thumb, I have on Jessica Tangerine Dreamz, China Glaze Lemon Fizz, China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, American Apparel Coney Island, and Barielle Swizzle Stix. Taking Sally Hansen White On, I blocked off half of my nails with it. Then taking my dotting tool, I used American Apparel Hassid to add polka dots on the white part of my nails.

I really like how this manicure turned out. This was definitely one of the more harder designs I've tried and I'm glad I was able to do this manicure justice for a newbie like myself. What do you think?

  7. So cute! I am very jealous of your dots - they are evenly spaced. I never seem to be able to get all my dots spaced correctly. Must just be a lot of practice and a steady hand!

    1. Thank you! My dots in the beginning were not really uniform but I take my take creating them so maybe that's why there so neat and even now, haha.
