Wherever you go, there will be love.

Hello darlings, my day so far has mostly involved caffine, reading all your darling blog posts, a sneaky nap that snuck up on me, and of course these gorgeous little polka-dot nails.
I'm not sure if I'll be posting for the next couple of days, I'm packing up to move in with the mister tomorrow. Then we might try and get out of the city this weekend, perhaps in the countryside at Goldaming or maybe France (a 30 minute drive away, why not?!).

Anyway, nails. Polka-dot nails, an oldy but good, yes ladies? You don't need any fancy-smanshy nail art pens or transfers to re-create this look, no siree!! Just grab your 2 favorite varnishes, a top coat, and off you go...
1. Apply 2 coats of your base colour, wait to dry completely. (I used 'Milkshake' by Topshop)
2. Take your 2nd colour and use the very tip of the brush to create little round dots. Don't overload the brush with varnish, it's easier if you don't have much to work with. (I used Nail Tip Whitener by Rimmel)
3. Wait for all the dots to dry completely.
4. Apply a clear top coat to avoid chips. (I used Forever Strong Pro by Maybelline). TADA!!

  7. There's something so darling about polka dot nails!

    How do you feel about the Maybelline top coat? I've got a minor obsession with top coats, so I'd be interested in hearing how well it works.


    I'm beyond jealous that you can just drive to France.
