Hot Neon Mattes and Cool Polka Dots

I managed to get the lovely Traci at The Trace Face Philes to send me the fab China Glaze Poolside Collection Neons which had to be worn with a different colour on each nail... like so!

The yellow and orange were a little sheer and there was a bit of VNL even with 4 coats.  Although not sold as matte they have a lovely matte finish to them.  Perfect for such bright neons.

Well, they were just asking for a polka dot touch weren't they?!!

This is only my 2nd or 3rd use of my dotting tools and I think the first time I've used them actually on my nails, not on a nail wheel.  The dots weren't perfect but I was pretty impressed with how they turned out.  I used a random white I had to create the dots.

I had so many compliments on this mani!!!  They really caught peoples' eyes and I kept being asked who had done my nails for me!  So I think I'll have another got at this some time.  Sometimes it's hard to see it properly on your nails, but now I'm looking at it in the pics I'm really pleased!


  1. This is so cute, a definite way to get your mani noticed!
