Would it be the official unofficial start of summer if I didn't kick off the day with a manicure Monday? It also wouldn't be a summer holiday if I wasn't sick...yes, I have strep throat AGAIN. It's the 3rd time in 15 months so I think it's safe to say I may have to get my tonsils taken out... and that is a scary thought. That's a whole different blog post!
I haven't really bought too many new polishes for summer but when I went into my collection Friday night to pick something, I knew I had to go with Bikini So Teeny. It is the most classic summer shade in my opinion and it makes me so happy when I wear it.
There was no better choice for Memorial Day.
I did want to spice it up a little and I knew exactly how I'd do that. Sephora recently (and it's still going on) had a huge sale and I went to town! I picked up this little nail art set for $5 because I always want to switch up my manicures but never have the right tools.
I decided to create some polka dots for my first try and used Peach Side Babe to create the polka dots and honestly, I'm not the best at creating designs but I'm pretty happy with how this came out.
I used the fat end of the nail art set, dipped it in the nail polish bottle, and applied it to my semi dry nails. The dots are perfectly round or neat but like I said, I love how fun it is.
I will for sure be using this nail art set again and if you love doing your own nails but are easily bored, I HIGHLY recommend picking this up. It's $5, you cannot beat it.
