Really liking this single dot nail art. There mere seconds it takes fits nicely with my schedule! For this round, I’ve used NYC Color in a Minute in Times Square (this is actually my second bottle, I like it so much! This incarnation is redder than it’s earlier counterpart which I used for this look here as well as this dotty experiment) and a Sally Hansen for the black dot. If you haven’t tried the NYC fast drying polish, you should! It’s $2 or less and dries faster and stays longer than any other fast drying versions I’ve tried!
Minimal effort, maximum impact! I like it! The pale version of this can be seen here!
Hi! March is here and the days are beautiful here in the Vancouver area in the middle of the day lately, although early mornings and nights are still frozen. Makes it hard to get dressed for the weather in the morning! I have no place complaining knowing what the rest of Canada is like right now, hope you guys are ok over there!
I managed to find a small scrap of time to do my nails this week, and even more astoundingly, find a second scrap of time to post it! These are some very minimalist nails with Cover Girl Constant Candy and one single simple dot of OPI Black Onyx. It was inspired by a black polka dot ribbon off a perfume bottle, modeled below for extra polka-dotty effect!
Has spring or better weather hit any of you guys yet?
Something different for today’s NOTD! I used L’Oreal She’s So Matte and Sally Hansen Celeb City for this look. L’Oreal She’s So Matte is a flat black polish that is pretty opaque in one coat but I used two for this NOTD. I really like the effect, but unfortunately it chips very quickly (like most matte polishes) which might have something to do with not being able to use a topcoat, so I don’t use it very often. I’m not able to find this on their website anymore, so it was probably a limited edition. Sally Hansen Celeb City is a shimmery sparkly silver that has been around for years and is still in production.
First two coats of L’Oreal She’s So Matte, which dried very quickly as mattes generally do. I then used the smaller side of my new nail dotter to add metallic “studs” all around the edges with Sally Hansen Celeb City. With the matte black, it sort of had a look of studded black leather!
I enjoyed the interesting leathery look for a while, and decided I wanted to see what it looked like shiny before it started to chip. I added a quick coat of NYC Grand Central Station clear coat (which is fantastic by the way). Now I can’t decide if I like it better shiny or matte!
And because why not, I did the inverse on the other hand. It was harder to paint and photograph with the “wrong” hand but I thought it was still interesting enough to share!
This was a fun and easy nail project. 🙂 Like any the best?
Today’s nails of the day is Essie Sunday Funday! It’s a bright, pretty, orange leaning coral with a light amount of white shimmery flecks throughout. Perfect for a glisteny, juicy, summery look! It’s gorgeous, I have no idea how it stayed on the shelves long enough to make it to the discounter I found it at. It applied beautifully and drying time seemed pretty good! I wanted to try out my new dotting tool on top of this shade, and here is 2 coats swatched, no topcoat!
For the dotting, I used NYC Park Ave, Nicole by OPI It’s All About the Glam, NYC Water Street Blue (stunning on it’s own as well, but stains) and of course that’s Sunday Funday on the far right.
Final result close up on thumb. I also did my ring finger, I think more might have been overkill. I think I might need a more opaque white, or a bigger dotter as I had some issues making the white dot even but overall I do like the look! I’m really enjoying this little tool 🙂
