Day 11 Polka Dots – 31Challenge

I would like to start off with a brief review of the Cuticle Oil that I got in my most recent Julep box, since I used it when I did my manicure last night. It smelled very nice, wasn’t too greasy, and after I rubbed it on my cuticles & nails it seemed to soak in after about a minute or two. The next morning my fingers didn’t seem as dry and cracked as they normally are during the winter months. Overall I found the product very helpful so far. 🙂

For the Polka Dot Challenge Day , I went with a more Spring / Easter ( I know it’s early still but don’t worry I’ll change it again soon. For the Stripes day of the challenge I want to go back and do another St. Patrick’s look 🙂 ). Here is a close up of one hand.

And the final look.

To start the look I varied my base colors, I used “OPI-Too Pink to Hold em'” for the pink fingers and a clear on all of the mainly polka-dotted fingers. For the Dots I used “OPI’s – Planks A lot – Pirates of the Caribbean collection”,  “Revlon ColorStay – Bonsai”,  “OPI -Dating a Royal”, “Ulta – Celebutante”, my Pink listed above, and my Dotter Tools. For the full polka-dotted fingers I started out with scattered dots of the blue, then once dry, the Pink, and so on for the remainder of the colors. For the pink based/polka tipped fingers I used the “Celebutante” as bigger dots on the tip of my nails, then once dry I dotted a thin layer of the blue, the other purple, and then green.

What do you think of this Polka Dotted look? Have you bought and tried any dotting tools, if so what did you think?

  2. I love the dotted look! I just purchased some dotting tools and nail art brushes and I think I’m going to do the 31 day challenge on my blog. Is there a list or rules or any info on it that you can give me a link to?

    • Yea the 5 pack is great. It was on Amazon, and I have seen a lot of bloggers also make mention to that, its a pack of 5, all different sizes, and they are double tipped for around 5 dollars depending on seller. Good Luck, they are really great.

    • Its actually by julep. Its a 19.99 a month subscription where you get 2-3 polishes (retailing 14.00 a piece) as well as another product. That month i got their cuticle oil. I believe you can purchase the cuticle oil on their website without subscribing but if you are subcribed you get a percentage off. Gpe that helps 🙂
