Oh yum. This shade is a bright, shiny hot pink -- aptly named 'Bachelorette Bash,' it is the PERFECT polish. Super smooth application, so shiny it didn't even need a topcoat (which of course I used anyway -- four days before tip wear! That's pretty good for me!). Quick-drying, two thin coats and we were done!
I'm trying to show you my first attempt at polka dots here - I used a matter top coat on my ring finger, then using the head of a bobby pin, placed approximately eleven dots on my ring finger, creating super shiny dots! It was subtle, but I loved it. In the words of my SO, "Some girl out there somewhere would totally flip out over this, wouldn't they?" -- Yes, dear, they would. And by 'they' I mean 'me.' This turned out to be way easier than I thought, evening in applying dots with my non-dominant hand. I mean, just place a dab of polish on some tin foil, dip the head of a bobby pin in it, and dab it onto your nail. Not exactly rocket science (of which I am an expert, incidentally. ;) )
So can you see my dots in these photos? I googled 'polka dot manicures' and came up with literally GAZILLIONS of photos -- the nail blogging community is so flippin' creative, I can't stand it! Looking forward to showing you many dotted manicures in the future!
