Blue and Pink Dotticure

Hey guys!

Can you believe it's almost the weekend?? I'm so excited, even though this week hasn't been particularly tough for me... haha. But my brother is coming into town tonight, so it'll be really great to see him!

I have some more nail art to show you today. Is anyone surprised that I went with polka dots? No? Didn't think so. I just love polka dots way too much. They look really fun and they're so easy and quick to do. So no complaints there. =)

Cobalt and pink is one of my favorite color combinations, so of course I had to try it out. I started with three coats of Essie Butler Please, a vibrant cobalt blue. The formula is fine and not nearly as bad in my opinion as I've read on other blogs... it's pretty streaky and thin on the first coat, but once I applied the second coat it looked great. I added the third coat just to brighten it up a bit, although it wasn't really necessary. I really really love Butler Please and almost didn't want to put anything on top of it because I love it so much. But I had polka dots in mind, so I had to do them. Apparently Butler Please is a dupe of Nails Inc. Baker St, and apparently the formula on that is much better. Oh well. 

Next I used my dotting tools to create a gradient of polka dots from large to small going down my nail. The two pink polishes I used are Lime Crime Parfait Day (bright pastel pink) and China Glaze Pink Voltage (only my favorite neon pink EVER). Then I topped it all off with top coat to smooth it out, and there you go! I like how bright this manicure is. I could have been more careful with the placement of my dots to make the gradient more obvious, but I don't care too much. I'm happy with it. =)

 That's it for today! I hope that you all have a great Thursday! Thanks for stopping by =)
