From the File Drawer - 52-Week Challenge: 5/27 - Inspired by a Pattern

Here's another one of those manicures that I did on time but didn't post. The 52-week challenge that I'm not slavishly following, but occasionally use for inspiration, had "inspired by a pattern" for the week of 5/27. Given my love affair with my dotting tools, I chose polka dots!

I started with a base of Sinful Shine Dark Room, followed by a lovely coat of Max Factor Fantasy Fire, and then dotted in two sizes with Sally Hansen Celeb City, my go-to silver!

Honestly, this came out even better than I pictured in my head! I absolutely loved wearing this and my only regret is not being able to capture in my pictures just how much the fantasy fire made this manicure flash.

And today you get a bonus mani, two for one deal! Actually, I just did my friend V's nails again, and this manicure was pretty enough that it just had to be shared. I don't remember what the occasion was, but she was going to some function at work that she needed a little extra classy for, so we did some pretty sparkle and flowers. I thought they came out pretty well, myself.


  1. This is pretty! The dots look so even too :)

    1. I think that's a benefit of the really large dots with the little dots in between. Even when my lines aren't straight, they *look* like it! :)
