DOT 2 DOT NOTD

Hello everyone! Hope everybody is having a good Monday. Today's NOTD is actually one I did on Saturday. After I got done with it, I wasn't really sure I liked it and had planned on taking it off. I didn't get around to doing it, and after getting a couple of compliments on it from a couple of random people, I decided it might not be as bad as I originally thought, so I decided to take some pics to share with you guys. There is a chip on my middle finger and a little tip wear, but this is after two days.


For the base I used Nina- In A Tiff which I knew I had to have once I saw it on Steph's Closet. I hadn't picked it up yet and then I saw The Asian Girl also posted about this one last week too, so I finally got around to getting it. I used my dotting tool to make the dots with. For the dots I used .......... the new SH Neons - shocker, huh?! When I use my dotting tool to make dots I will get a piece of foil or wax paper and add a little pool of whatever nail polish I am going to use, and then use my dotting tool from the pool of polish.








This was just a lip gloss I found on clearance at Target. It is made by Rimmel. I thought it looked kinda cool though.


Does anyone know or know where to find the ingredients for the Nina Ultra Pro nail polishes? If so, could you please let me know either in the comments section or in an email to getchanailsdid@yahoo.com. Thanks!

The multi-color dots are really cute!

Amabile said...

Oh my, these dots are so lively and lovely too :-)

Rai said...

I'm loving this! That blue is so pretty.

I wanted to head to a Walgreens this weekend to look for those Sally Hansen polishes, but I felt a bit sick. =[

Mary said...

Cute! All I know about Nina polish is that it's Touluene (sp?) free, but I don't know any more. That's a great color, one of the few Nina's I have.

Brooke said...

KAE - Thank you. I thought it looked sort of Birthday-ish for some reason.

AMABILE - Thank you!

RAI - Oh no!! Sorry to hear that! Hopefully you will get to feeling better soon :)

MARy - They are so elusive! I can't seem to find anything on the internet about them. Thanks for that info though.

Suuuuch a cute mani, lady! I think I want to try somethin' like that for my toes. Loves it!

Brooke said...

B - Thank you! I bet it would look great as a pedi too!

That is straight from my bottle of In A Tiff, lol. What most of that means is completely beyond my barely-made-a-C-in-university-Chemistry-I comprehension. Thanks for the shoutout! I love the dots; it reminds me of Wonder Bread. SH Insta-Dri is great for Konad; I used Jumpin' Jade for a recent Konadicure.

Looks like the Ultra Pro is safe for me!

I like it! The dots are flawless and that can be quite hard to get. Very nice!

That blue is amazing! I'm gonna look into that website you told me about..do they carry this brand also?

clockwork said...

This mani is full on adorable, love all the rainbow dotting.

Lucy said...

Adorably cute! Glad you left it on. You did the dots so well. It's a very happy looking manicure.

Brooke said...

THANK YOU LADIES!! Amazing what a couple of dots can do to change your whole mani, eh!!

THE ASIAN GIRL - Thank you so much for that info!!

BELLA - No, this brand is carried only at Sally's from what I can tell.

Brooke,
The first thing that came to mind when I saw the dots was-
WONDER BREAD!

If you did that on white polish, with different sized dots, you would have THE perfect nostalgic manicure!

Love it!
