Running Incognito

When trying out my Jumbo Plates from Cheeky I messed up with this pattern and decided to just dot it up!

Barielle’s Mint Ice Cream Cone is the base for stamping with Gina Tricot’s Petrol. I dotted on top with Essie’s Going Incognito,  Orly’s Ancient Jade and China Glaze’s Running In Circles. It turned out quite ok for a messed up stamping 🙂

Candy in the Alps

Way back when I still had a more oval nail shape and hadn’t set up my photo tent I wanted to create some kind of candy themed manicure. First I painted a base of OPI’s Alpine Snow (my favorite white polish of all time) and dotted Haribo candy on top with Nubar’s Sexy Red, China Glaze’s green Starboard and OPI’s yellow Candlelight. I added some pink dots with Sally Hansen’s Party Hard-Y.

Sky blue rays

The initial idea for this manicure was to create an assymetrical pattern where each nail had the same design of four rays but were centered differently. As you can see I managed to make my middle finger and pinky look about the same but who cares? I like it 🙂

China Glaze’s Flyin’ High was the base and I used cut up pieces of Scotch tape and Flormar’s blue shimmer 431 for the second layer.

You are me and I am you

Milani’s Fresh Teal is so beautiful I needed to use it as the base for nail art (as I almost always do with my manicures at some point). I used Barry M’s Mint Green for the first layer of the dots. For the next layers I used China Glaze’s Snow, Rimmel London’s Green With Envy and topped it off with Barry M’s Gold Foil.

Unfortunately for me Poshé’s fast drying top coat bubbled alot this time as you can see… maybe because of the ridges from the dotting? Either way this kind of dotticure is so much fun to create and wear 🙂

And… It’s Friday today and this means weekend and a trip to my boyfriends family’s cottage by the sea. Looking forward to unwinding 🙂 Have an awesome weekend (and some awesome music)!

Asphalt and spring flowers

China Glaze’s Stone Cold is perfect as the base for nail art and in this case the end result reminds me of asphalt and the first flowers in spring time 🙂

I stamped white flowers with China Glaze’s Snow and dotted on top of them with Rimmel London’s pink creme Pop Your Pink, Misa’s green creme Green With Envy and Gina Tricot’s yellow creme Aspen Gold. I topped this off with a coat of Essie’s Matte About You.

Refreshing peach

I think it’s safe to say that my fondness of dotticures has evolved into some kind of addicition… They’re so much fun to do, require very little time compared to the results you get and I just love how they look 🙂

Gina Tricot’s Bright Peach was the base for dotting with China Glaze’s white creme Snow and Wet N Wild’s I Need A Refresh-Mint.

Golden jade and stylish circles

It’s Green Wednesday over at Vacker&Underbar’s! 🙂

Rimmel London’s Misty Jade is a bright pale jade green creme with some minor application issues. As the base of nail art it works wonderfully. For the first layer of the bigger dots and the smaller diagonal dots I used Essie’s dark green Stylenomics; I really love this kind of symmetrical dotting and I find myself using it in nail art over and over.

On top of that I used Barry M’s Gold Foil and lasty a dot of China Glaze’s bright green Running In Circles.
