Nail Art: Blue with White Polka Dots

Up until recently, the only person I had ever seen wearing nail polish was my grand-mother. So I rarely ever wore any, except when I was little and my grand-ma would pass me some; you know, a girly activity to do together. ...then I was inspired by Memorable Days & Burkatron, so I decided to give it a shot. I was amazed at how fun it was and how pretty it turned out. I'll definitely be doing more so stay tuned!

It's important to add the clear top coat to seal otherwise your design will rub off within a day.


Sally Hansen nail art pen

Likes: Easy to apply. Dries quickly. Comes in many different colors. Can remove mistakes with water. Looks pretty.

Dislikes: A bit expensive for what it is ($8 CAD). If you don't apply a clear top coat of polish it rubs off within a day. It's very watery. Need to reapply more than once to get desired result.
