Rock-a-Billy

Hey everyone!  Welcome to the end of the week!  Hooray!!!
As most of you know, I love to match my nails to my outfits, and I have a new black dress to rock tomorrow night!  It has small white polka dots, and has a bit of a vintage rock-a-billy flair to it!


I started with two coats of Hard Candy The End, a black creme.  I know ... "Ooooh!  Aaaaah!", right?!


I would have stopped there, but it didn't have that extra pop that I was after.  I decided to add one coat of Finger Paints Motley, a great top coat loaded with blue & green flakes.


I originally planned on using one of my stamping plates for the polka dot design.  But, after pouring through my book of plates, I realized that I didn't have the perfect polka dot design!!  
Are you kidding me??  How did I let that happen?!


So, I used my small dotting tool with Konad Special White to create my polka dot design.  I then used it with my Konad Q1 stamp for the swallows on my accent nails.  I finished with one coat of SV.


So, to sum up, what was supposed to be a quick mani turned into a slightly not so quick mani - but these things happen, and I'm happy with it!  I'm so psyched to rock these with my dress!  I hope everyone has a fun weekend!

Happy Painting!

P.S. - On a side note, my husband HATES polka dots.  So, if you're on my side, leave a comment telling him why polka dots are awesome and let's see if we can change his mind!!!!

Colors: Hard Candy The End, Finger Paints Motley

  2. Dear Husband,
    Polka Dots are the bee's knees and should accompany every outfit in some way. Both trendy and timeless, your cute wifey obviously knows what's up. Trust her. She looks fabulous and you'll be the envy of any red-blooded male within drooling distance. Better bring your bat.

    Girly, this is a seriously cute mani! TFS!
