I intended this manicure to look like cute polka dots nails and I think they just look like a cookies & cream chocolate bar... which, in itself, is damn delicious, but on my nail... I'm not so sure. I did get a few compliments on this manicure though! A girl who works at my favorite bakery (the coffee is the bessssst!) didn't understand how the polka dots worked - I tried to explain that it was a topcoat but she didn't get it - I wish I could have shown her the bottle. Perhaps I shouldn't have chosen a Sally Hansen Salon Manicure polish in Lavender Cloud, which basically looks white, even though it is a bit lavender in the bottle. Cookies and cream is just... not nail appropriate! Cookies and cream is to be eaten!
Either way, the point was to test out the new Nubar's Black Polka Dot topcoat. I actually quite like it if I forget the fact that it looks funny on a white-ish nail polish. If you're not too picky about the placement of your black dots, you won't have a problem with this polish. I suggest to pick up a lot of polish on your brush and try to spread the "black dots" on your nail. They kind of "stick" and you can sort of pick up the excess nail polish off with the brush. It's hard to explain but it works quite well! If you're going in with very thin coats, I'd say you'll get 3 dots. But if you try a ticker coat, then you'll get about 5 to 7. Mine many was done with one coat of Nubar's Black Polka Dot, but I did dot a couple more polka dots on after.
helloberry. I love it so much!
I'm still dealing with dry cuticles but have been trying really hard to not pick at them. It's an ongoing battle really. My apologies for dryness!
I'm heading to bed early tonight! I haven't slept much in the past few days and this has been topped with afternoon migraines. Annick needs sleep! So see ya later peeps and have a great night!
