Yellow With Black Dots Nails

So… what happens when I try to be patriotic for my school?  This happens:

Colors used:

  • China Glaze: Solar Power
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: Black Out

So, yeah.  My school’s colors are black and gold.  So I came up with this design.  It’s simple, but sometimes the simplicity of something makes it beautiful.  Not saying that this design is beautiful, BUT I think if I added something to it, I would ruin in.  Half of a design is to know when to STOP.

As far as doing the design, it was super easy.  I first painted my nails “Solar Power” which is the yellow color.  I used three coats.  If you want to know more about this color, click my Review and check it out!  Then, using my homemade dotting tool (a bobby pin), I made a large dot in the center of each nail, using “Black Out”, then I made the dots go from large to small, putting them in a swerving direction.  It’s easiest to just look at the photo for the way I did the dots. 🙂  And then I added a large-ish, silver rhinestone on the fourth nail, on top of the large, center dot.  You know how much of love rhinestones… I obviously couldn’t do without them. 😀

And I lastly put on Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.  That’s why my nails are so shiny!  I just got hat top coat yesterday, and I’ll have a review on it maybe tomorrow, but in short, I love it!  Before Seche Vite I just used some cheap top coat, but it makes a difference to use a nice one.

OH!  And I know I don’t mention this every time (or anytime? I don’t know/remember), but I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS use a base coat and a top coat WHENEVER I paint my nails.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  🙂  Thought I’d get that out there.

I got “Solar Power” from Sally Beauty Supply and I got “Black Out” at Walgreens.

This was a short one today, guys.  I don’t know if you like the short, simple ones, but I’m going to apologize for its shortness anyway.  I just have that everlasting headache you get when you’re sleep-deprived.  But it’s the weekend, and I can catch up on some Zzzz’s.
