Dotted Flowers

This weekend I made my first attempt at a manicure using dotting tools. I got a set of 5 dotting tools from ebay for super cheap. Overall I'm very happy with the result, but I don't mind telling you that my left hand looks a lot better than my right hand. Some of the flowers on my right hand look like odd-colored fried eggs instead of flowers. :)

I'll definitely be using my dotting tools more often!

New York Color "Prospect Park Pink", Sinful Colors "Grecian Sun", Spoiled by Wet n Wild "Designated Driver", and Sinful Colors "Snow Me White".

Friday night I started to use the blue "Grecian Sun" as the base color and planned to have pink and yellow flowers, but the blue came out too think for my taste, and I kept dragging the colors. Finally I gave up in a fit of pique and went to bed. I was really disappointed, because I've been on the hunt for a blue in this shade, and I was so excited to find this one. This isn't the first time Sinful Colors has let me down. I have a lot more success with the metallics, frosts, and glitter Sinful Colors than their cremes. I also find that they tend to take a long time to dry.

The yellow "Designated Driver" is a color I picked up at CVS last week. It's a "taxi-cab yellow", hence the name. CVS is the only place I've seen the Spoiled by Wet n Wild line of polish. They had a lot of great colors, but I could tell some of them were dupes for other colors made by Wet n Wild. They have a lot of chunky foil glitters in the line that are very interesting.

"Prospect Park Pink" looks kind of orange in the above bottle photo, but that's just the lighting in my kitchen. The actual color reminds me very much of the color of Pepto-Bismol, and of the color of my dorm room walls my freshman year of college. They were that way when I moved in, I swear!
