I'm beginning to really like the idea of combining prompts! Today's mani is mix of POLKA DOT nails for the 31 Day Challenge and GLITTER nails for Fishbowl Friday 045...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Smokin'
Revlon Diamond Texture
SinfulColors Cool Gray
SinfulColors Snow Me White

Gray is easily one of my favorite colors to wear when it comes to clothes. So, it's really no surprise that I'm drawn to gray polishes. I particularly like this accent mani because it combines gray with a textured silver polish, which ties in nicely with my silver jewelry. Matchy matchy!

This accent mani was simple to create. Three coats of Smokin' on my thumb, pointer, and pinky. Snow Me White on my ring finger until I reach opacity. I think I used three coats, but it might've been four. I used one of my smaller dotting tools to create the dots on my ring fingers with SinfulColors Cool Gray. While my dots were getting all nice and set up, I painted Diamond Texture on my middle fingers. I went over my non-polka dotted nails with SinfulColors Clear Coat and Seche Vite. I waited another minute or so before adding a thick coat of Seche Vite to my polka dots. Thanks to all that drying and set up time, I didn't have any smudges, which is honestly a first! So yay for making progress, right?

I'm a little bummed that I have to take this mani off tonight, but it's time for stripes and for me to test out the vinyls I ordered from KBShimmer. I'm not quite sure what my color scheme is, but I'm thinking I'll do something similar to this, glitter nail included!

As far as the weekend goes, it's looking like it should be a decently relaxing one. I think we're celebrating Granny Sparkle's birthday tomorrow, then on Sunday, Peanut and I have a mommy/daughter shopping date! Aaaand I might be trying out a new recipe. Maybe. And I have no idea what it is yet. I'll probably scroll through Pinterest for recipes tomorrow! Either way... I hope you had a fantastic Friday! Cheers to an even better weekend!!!
