The theme for Day 6 was polka dots. I recently got a dotting tool, and am still mastering it. I am actually quite pleased with how this mani came out. It's definitely one of my favorites from the challenge. I think the dots look pretty good, and are all pretty of uniform size.
So, there's kind of a funny story behind the color combination. I couldn't decide what colors to use for this mani, just because I knew pretty much anything would look good. So I decided to have my boyfriend pick the colors. The first thing he asked was what I was wearing to work the next day. I had planned on wearing black shirt with a teal and black knit cardigan, which you can see in the next picture.
I think he asked me what I was wearing so that he could pick out colors that would not match it all, thinking I wouldn't go through with it. But, I'm not super picky if my nails don't match what I'm wearing. If I'm doing a manicure and intend to wear it a few days, I try to have at least outfit match my nails. Anyway, so he said he wanted a blue base with pink and orange polka dots.
I then went into my stash and pulled out LA Colors Static Electricity for the base and Julep Mandy (pink) and LA Colors Tangerine (orange) for the polka dots. I did have to do a second coat on the polka dots to get them opaque on top of the bright, almost neon blue.
Finally, I just have to say, I am in LOVE with this final picture I took. I wish I had taken the time to do my photo editing (I only crop and add the watermark, nothing else) during the challenge, because I definitely would have submitted this final image. It's one of my favorite pictures of my nails I have taken.
