if were are maintaining the focus on all things superficial, check out my polka-dot nails!




barry m's pink 172 was licked onto my nails, followed by rimmel's french manicure to turn it from a hot-pink, into a more muted, pastel-ish version. clever, no? and these polka dots were created by folding out an ordinary kirby grip, dipping the end into barry m's black and dabbing onto the nail.


sadly, i can't take credit for this ingenious idea polka dot idea; i read it on a blog somewhere and can't remember for the life of me where, but whoever you are, THANK YOU.
(the muted colour by means of french manicure varnish, however, is entirely my own!)

i love polka dots, so to have them on my nails is a fantasy COME TRUE. i've tried numerous colour combinations and although this pink is my favourite, emulating ladybirds on my fingernails with red and black is a close second.

so go forth, and change your bare nails FOR spots.
