Newly nubby nails need a goofy design. This is where the polka dots come in! I'm torn about whether I like my nails this length, so I wanted to do a fun and colorful design to help ease into the shorter length.
Today was a great day- other than waking up at 5 am to get to training on time this morning! Had a blast in training- my new coworkers are going to be fun, got free breakfast from Max Brenner, then I got to check out the new H&M store in the Forum Shops here in Vegas after work- it's supposedly the largest H&M in the US. They had all the new Lanvin for H&M stuff, which was super cute, but at $200 a dress, a tad out of my price range. The shoes were cute too, and I totally wanted one of the purses, but I ended up only getting two of the lipsticks, love the packaging!! The best part about going there today was that it was opening day, so they had a TON of opening day sales, I got a couple of shirts, dresses, and jeans for only $10 each! Rumor had it that they handed out scratch-off cards to the first 1,000 people, and they were worth $10-$1000!! Unfortunately, I didn't get to go there until about 4, so I missed out. :-/ Still fun to shop in there though- it is HUGE HUGE HUGE, and glitter and sparkle and stuff everywhere, plus, a ladies lounge, and awesome stuff on all three floors!
Ok, enough about H&M... to the nails! :)
I used American Apparel Raccoon as a base, with American Apparel Cameo Blue for the blue dots, American Apparel MacArthur Park for the chartreuse dots, American Apparel Echo Park for the shimmery cream dots, and Essie Foot Loose for the pink dots. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.
The Lanvin <3 H&M lippies, I tested 'em out after I took this photo, and they're actually really nice- creamy and pigmented! Too bad there are only 4 colors! (Red and Hot Pink <---? not hot pink at all, sort of more pinky nude, are shown below, then there is Burgundy and Rose, which is really more of a Barbie pink) I'm tempted to get the Burgundy, which is really rather dark, but I might be able to pull it off.
