Only 6 more days to enter my nail art contest!
The goal: to design a socially engaged manicure that supports
a cause and raises awareness about an issue that you care about.
The 50 first participants get a prize!
Today's theme in the Take Two challenge is "Polka dots". Pretty straightforward, isn't it? Well there you have it.
I even managed to capture a little bit of the elusive gold shimmer on Zoya - Charla, which is my base colour on this mani. Check out the bottom of the post for a close-up shot.
If you look closely you'll see there's a bit of that gold goodness showing through the dots! It isn't much, but Charla is reputed as one of those polishes that are just impossible to photograph.
Here are other participants to the Take Two challenge:
The polishes I used:
- Base coat: Essie - All in One Base
- Greenish blue base: Zoya - Charla
- Pink dots: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Pink Satin (This is an awesome one-coater which works well for stamping, dotting and nail art because it doesn't dry too quickly and is sufficiently opaque to fully cover up any base colour.)
- Top coat: Essie - No Chips Ahead
I applied a base coat, followed by two coats of Charla. Then I used a dotting tool to apply the dots in Pink Satin. Added a top coat and I was done!
