So, I know things have been quiet for here since my first nail post. I decided on a blogging schedule and will be posting on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and maybe something on Sundays? Hmm, who knows? I don’t want to start off doing too much and then have to slow down because of school. In case anyone was wondering. (:


My announcement is that I opened an Etsy store today for nail polish necklaces!!

Here’s the link: CLICK HERE

Here’s some photos:

As of right now, I only ship to the United States. But as I get a better understanding of shipping and its rates, I hope to expand to other countries!

I’m really excited about all of this! What do you think?

Thank you for reading!

Here’s my first actual nail post! Gahh, scary! (: Here we go:

For my first post, I decided to do a gradient with polka dots! Easy to do but I always love the results, there are so many color combinations that can be done! More after the jump!

I did these nails by painting my base color, I used 3 thin coats of Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear: Mellow Yellow. After that dried, I took a makeup sponge and painted stripes of Mellow Yellow and Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear: Blue Me Away! on it, making sure to overlap them slightly. I then sponged it onto my nails until I liked the results and repeated on all my nails. Once that had dried, I used my dotting tool and made the dots with Sinful Colors: Amethyst. I sealed everything with a coat of Seche Vite. It sounds more complicated than it really is haha!
I also created a little bottle shot “guide”:
Mini story behind the post title: my original idea was a yellow and blue gradient with the blue being really vibrant against the slightly paler yellow. Well, I forgot how bright Mellow Yellow actually is and that when you mix yellow and blue together, you get green! Haha you would think being a Graphic Design major, that I would be able to remember basic color theory. Oh well, I still love the outcome. Here’s some more pictures:
Would you rock this mani? Let me know in the comments!
Also, I thought it might be fun if I included a song at the end of very post that I was listening to while writing each post or that I just really like. I don’t know, let me know what you think about the idea below! I’ll do it until someone says they don’t like it haha!

Lastly, thank you for taking the time to read this! I’ll have more posts coming up next week as I try to get myself onto a blogging schedule.

Welcome to Hey, Darling Polish! My name is Marisa and I’m a 19 year old college junior who loves painting her nails. I started this blog so that I could have a place to show my nail designs and hopefully, befriend some other nail bloggers. The whole idea behind this is to show personal growth while letting myself be creative! I hope you enjoy and feel free to talk to me! I’ll have my first real post up tomorrow! (:
