Pink Polka Dots

Hey ladies!

How are you on this first Advent Sunday? I'm feeling fine today and I'm in full Christmas mood now and after writing this post I will start to decorate the house! Can you believe we celebrate Christmas again in less than a month?!
Before I start with Christmas and Winter manis, I want to show you some pink polka dots I did a while ago.
Let's take a look!

When I made this, a month ago or so, I didn't like it that much, because it didn't turn out as I wanted it. I thought there were too much dots, because I intended to receive a more delicate look.
But when I look at it now, I like it. Do you know this feeling too? You make something and don't like it, but when time goes by, you think, well, it's not that bad! =)

Used colors:
Mint - I do
Essie - Style Hunter, Fiji, Lovie Dovie
China Glaze - Pixie Dust

I don't know why, but my camera doesn't like soft pink tones... Everytime I look at these pics I think, this really soft pink from Mint, looks a bit peachy, but believe me it's a really soft pink, which I absolutely love, even though you have to apply three (!!) coats to get it fully opaque.

After applying the base color and the dots I topped it with Pixie Dust, for some extra bling. Unfortunately the effect gets a bit lost on the pics, I think. It looks a bit dirty and not blingy, or is this just my self-doubt speaking... Nevermind, in real life it looked blingy! =)

I'm so happy that I can post X-Large pics now, with my new design! =)
Just one more!

Nevertheless, I like this mani now. I think I improved my polka dots a lot, because even though polka dot manis aren't that difficult to do, you have to work precisely and with a good amount of patience to receive a nice look!

Ok, what do you think? Like it?
Are you in Christmas mood too?

  1. I think it definitely looks blingy Franzi!! I love that you used the glitter topper on top of the design, it makes it so festive! Wow, you're decorating already for Christmas! We are always so late with that, I totally don't have a Christmas feeling yet but I'm hoping it will come soon :)
