Here's another batch of CND Shellac manicures I've done over the past few weeks at the salon. Click to see them all and read about what products I used ...
If you weren't already aware, I'm a pattern fanatic. If my Konad addiction weren't enough of a tip-off, you might recall my love for toile. It doesn't stop at toile; something about patterns just gets me. The uniqueness and interesting designs I could stare at all day before I could ever have a real grasp on what's really going on in front of my eyes. For this reason I also love Vera Bradley products. I love seeing the new patterns every season, even if they're not my cup of tea. Same goes for Liberty of London, who is famous for busy and breathtaking patterns that leave me in awe. When I found out MAC was collaborating with the London store for a new collection, I was so excited. Sadly, barely any of the products are calling out to me enough to actually buy them, but the scarf caught my eye. I'm not going to be purchasing a scarf with a makeup brand's name on it for $100, but I can still enjoy the look of it.
This mani was a product of the mania that follows all polka-dot manicures; more polka-dot manicures, as well as both my daughter's and her dad's birthdays this week. I used: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On for the base and the dots are China Glaze Heli-yum, Color Club Explosive, China Glaze Four Leaf Clover, Orly Calypso Breeze and China Glaze Grape Pop. I also used a dotting tool that I got from 8ty8beauty.com.
It's been forever since I've done a polka dot manicure, and after my daughter requested one as her manicure, I really was in the mood to do one. They're so cute, and simple, and the color combinations are endless. Here I've used Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal for the base shade and Illamasqua Muse for the dots. I also used a dotting tool that I ordered from www.8ty8beauty.com.
