NOTD: Simple Polka Dot Nails

♫ 林俊杰 -那些你很冒险的梦

Let me bring you back to the beginning of my love for nail polish and nail art.

28 December 2010
This, ladies and gentlemen, was my first real attempt at nail art, and honestly, it lit the spark of my interest into a borderline obsession. There's no other way to describe it.

I was browsing through videos on Youtube one day, and stumbled across this particular video by cutepolish. It looked so pretty, and seemed simple enough, so I chose the colours from my stash, picked up my dotting tool, and the rest is history.

I mean, look at the thumbnail for the video! Isn't that just simple and adorable? :) I was really pleasantly surprised by the results, because I never imagined I could manage to do it, especially with my retarded left hand.

A couple of days ago, I decided to do this particular design again (it was almost the middle of the night, mind you), so I searched for the tutorial on Youtube. Approximately 30mins later, my NOTD was done. :D

I replaced the glittery silver line with gold.
I (still) don't own a silver glitter liner, so I used a gold nail art polish to replace it. What do you think? :)

These are the items I used for this simple polka dot manicure:
  • Scotch Magic tape
  • Dotting tool
  • The Face Shop base coat
  • Revlon nail polish in "Black Lingerie" (2 coats)
  • Etude House nail polish in WH702 White (for the polka dots)
  • Golden Rose nail art polish in 108 Gold
  • Seche Vite fast dry top coat

I LOVE cutepolish! I did this same design as my first attempt at nail art too! But unfortunately, I had a very limited stash. So I did these with a red base, pink polka dots, and gold stripes. Got compliments! ;)

silver looks more glamor, gold looks more classic. Depends on what mood you prefer ;)
