GOT Polish Challenge – Dots

Better late than never, right?

I’m so sorry for being an inconsistent blogger recently. Since the end of December, I decided to start going to the gym. Which was a stupid idea, because I already didn’t have enough time to get everything done. But I did it anyway, and am still doing it, and it’s making it hard to find time to blog. But I’m sure I’ll fall back into a better rhythm soon, so don’t you worry, I’m not going anywhere!

Last Thursday’s (yep I’m that far behind!) theme for the GOT Challenge was dots, so here’s my dotticure for you 🙂

#Naillartlinkup – Solar Eclipse

#Naillartlinkup - Solar Eclipse-002

Arrrgh! I do not get on well with mani guides! For this theme, I used those hole reinforcer thingies, and still… polish was going under them and everything. A tonne of clean-up later, and I managed it!

#31DC2013 – Polka Dots

Hi girlies!

I think my September blues is starting to blow over. I’ve had such fantastic support from friends recently, and so many lovely compliments from you, and one of my favourite brands got in touch to offer me a press sample (you’ll all know about it when it arrives ! follow my instagram if you want sneak previews), so everything’s looking a bit more fun. I’m also considering a re-design this autumn for a more wintery theme (still keeping the basic layout and minimalism) – what do you girls think? I really value your input 🙂

I used this prompt more as an excuse to doodle than to really plan out and do a ‘proper’ nail art, but I’m really quite pleased with the result, they look pretty cute 🙂

31DC2013 - Dots-001

Both colours are China Glaze – the grey is Elephant Walk and the light coral/pink is I Wanna Lei Ya. These are great colours to put together for a mid-season mani, and totally compliment each other!

I Love Nail Polish – Grape Taffy & Blue Steel

So at some point I’m going to have to rein in the polish buying!

I realise that we are still (only!) 3 months before Christmas, but I have a big family, and I like to take my time choosing presents, so you’ll be getting less new polish and more nail art from me soon 🙂

This is one that I wore this weekend, I’ve seen swatches of Grape Taffy and Blue Steel from I Love Nail Polish, and couldn’t wait to get them!

I used both in the same mani, but have to say that I was surprised at how light Grape Taffy is in the bottle, but I love the colour it dries to, so that’s not a big deal.

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 12. Dots

Oops, I’m behind again !

I ended up doing this mani twice, too. The first time, I went for a complicated dotticure, which looked a mess ! So I tried again, and kept it (very) simple 🙂

Guest Post from MariJo Nails

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

I’m so happy to share a guest post on Brijit’s blog.  I’m Marisa and I’m the writer of Polish Obsession.  I love sharing swatches of the many polishes that I have and I also dabble in a bit of nail art.  One of my favorite forms of nail art is polka dots, so that’s what I’ll be sharing with you all today.

For my base, I used Sally Hansen So Much Fawn, a dusty rose creme that’s a one coater.  It’s a really simple, but pretty polish.  I then added polka dots with my dotting tool using Aldo Chocolate Factory, NYC Fashion Avenue Fuschia, and Zoya Jana.  I then added Beauty Secrets Top Coat.

What I love about polka dots is that you can create so many fun designs with them.  I really like how this one turned out.  Hope you guys do too ;0).

Have you ever done a dotticure?
