Polka polka~

One more mani to show before i go to bed.. ><
Tomorrow's a busy day for a launching event~



As you know from the title this is a polka dots mani, but first you gotta start with a base color~


My favourite blue polish from The Face Shop BL604~ ^^


Ops no photos on 'tutorial', hehe...
But i'm sure you can tell how i did it, right? :p
Dot the white polish into a vertical straight line, follow with turquoise (Skin Food BL503) on each side of the white, then darker one at the side (Rimmel London 819 green with envy), lastly with smaller dots, with white polish again in between the turquoise for a optical gradient look..










Since i only have chance to play with polish on my nails on weekend, how can i only have 1 design~ talking about this, i realise i forgot to take down photos of another mani i did before this taking idea from LOVE4NAILS You tube nail guru.. ><


Ok i think i'll probably have to leave my blog no-update for a week again, or maybe longer.. ><>
