Hello lovelies! Can you guys believe that November is already over? This year seriously flew by so fast! I had the realization today that I have my one year work anniversary coming up in a few weeks. It feels like I was just posting about my new job yesterday haha. Time is so weird. Anyways, I still have two looks for ready for the Nail Challenge Collaborative’s polka dots theme. So, let’s get to the nails!

Here is what I used:

Ya know, looking at these now, I think I’ve posted this exact same look on the blog before. Whoops. Except I can’t find the post, so maybe I made that up. Moving on! Inspiration came from this print by Maiko Nagao. The pattern uses a neon yellow at the bottom, but I was feeling purple when I painted these.

Also, random question. Does anyone else own Charisma and has yours changed colors? Here it looks super pink but in this post from 2015, it looks purple. I know that I’ve had this problem with some neon purple indies, but I feel like Zoya would have more resources to create one that wouldn’t change colors like this…

  1. Start by applying three coats of These I Like.
  2. Then using a detail brush and acrylic paint, add on the random dot pattern.
  3. Once those are dry, use the distressed brush technique to add Charisma onto the tips of your nails.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.

Regardless of weird color shifts, I really loved this look! Random polka dots like this are my favorite way to rock them, and the distressed tips had a fun twist. The pink shimmer in These I Like plays well with the neon too. Make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts!
