Sinful Colors Dotticure

Hey Dolls!

So the other day I was at work and this girl came in with the most gorgeous neon purple polish I had ever seen. So of course I had to ask her what color she was wearing and how I could get my hands on it! Sadly, she did not know the name of it because she had gotten them done somewhere, but thought it was a China Glaze color. Then she also told me that you could get it at Walgreens. I was so confused, because I don't know about your Walgreens, but mine definitely does not carry China Glaze.

After scouring all the China Glaze polish images I could find on the internet,  I had zero success. Bummer right?! Since I had to go to Walgreens anyways I figured I would just look around and see if I could find anything that looked like it at all and low and behold I found it! It was NOT China Glaze though LOL and I already owned it, Go Figure!

I don't think the picture really does the color any justice, but I promise if you saw it in person, you would want it!!! Here is the polishes I used below.

From left to right is Sinful Colors Dream On (yes this was the color I searched and searched for LOL), Sinful Shine Skinny Dip, Illamasqua Scorch, and Zoya Gaia.

I used 3 coats of Dream On on all my fingers except the ring finger. Then I used 1 coat of Scorch and 1 coat of Gaia on my ring finger to get a nice soft golden glowing white. I then used Out The Door Top Coat to seal it all and get it to dry faster.

Next I used a larger ended dotting tool and some of the Scorch polish to make white dots down the center of all of my nails but the ring fingers. Once those dried I took a smaller dotting tool and Skinny Dip to do the small blue dots in the center of each white dot.

Lastly, I took the larger dotting tool and some Dream On polish to make dots in kind of an "S" shape on my ring fingers. I then used the smaller dotting tool to dot Scorch on the center of the Dream on dots and made 2 little dots with Skinny Dip. Then I covered everything with OTD top coat. Pretty quick and easy. I'm so glad I finally figured out what purple she had on or it would have driven me CRAZY!!!

Neon Sugar Spun French

Hey gals! I'm back with a super cute neon french! I loved adding the sugar spun detail because it really made the whole thing pop for the summer.

This manicure was probably one of the easiest ones I have ever done. I had to put on about 3 coats of each neon to get them to really show. The neon polishes I used are shown below.

From Left to right is Sinful colors Irish Green and Neon Melon, Dots Neon Orange, Sinful Colors Savage, and Funky Fingers Pop Artist.

I just used a striping black polish whose name escapes me right now. I put a few drops on a plastic baggy and waited for it to dry enough to get sticky and make long strings as you pulled the brush away to give it the spun sugar effect.

Hope you like them! I had a lot of fun doing this one and it really wasn't messy at all. You just need a little patience. Lastly I covered everything with OTD top coat.

Summer French

Hello to all my fellow polish loving peeps!

Hope everyone had an awesome 4th of July. I was stuck working but at least we closed by 6 so I could still have a little fun. I haven't gotten around to posting my 4th of July mani yet, but I loved this one I just did way more so I figured since I was late with the 4th of July post anyways what does it matter if it's even later he he he.

with flash

This was a very quick and easy manicure using only 2 polishes, Dots (the clothing store) polish in Neon Orange and Sinful Colors Unicorn.

without flash

First I used the Neon Orange to do the French manicure. This is one of my favorite polishes to use in the summer because it is so bright and fun. It kind of reminds me of the color of a traffic cone.

Next I used my dotting tool to make the dots along the smile line with Unicorn. What a fun name, but am I the only one who thought it would have some magical sparkles or something in it?!  Lastly I used 2 coats of OTD fast dry top coat to seal it all in and then I could finally go to bed! Whew! Hope y'all are having a great summer :)
