NOTW: Candy Yum Yum

Hi Guys,

How’s the new week treating you? I know Mondays tend to be rough but stick it out and the weekend will soon be here again πŸ™‚

This week I was planning on wearing a simple pink nail polish but then I started messing around with it. When I was done, my nails looked really yummy, so the name of a gorgeous MAC lipstick I’m currently craving came to mind; Candy Yum Yum.

For the base colour I used Sally Hansen’s Insta Dri in Presto Pink which is a barbie-like pink I like very much. I’ve recently gone crazy with the Insta Dri polishes, trying to buy them in every colour. I find them really easy to apply because the applicator brush is a nice size. They also dry in give or take five minutes which is very convenient. 

I then designed the polka dots in a V-like pattern on each nail. The V-shapes will give the illusion of longer nails if your nails are short. For a detailed tutorial on how I created the polka dots,  read a previous post here. To finish, I applied LA Girl’s UV Topcoat .  

What do you guys think of this design? What nail polishes are you currently loving?

Peace and Love,

    Hi there, coming from the Blog Hop over at Life In A Break Down.
    I love the shape of your nails, and this design so much!
    Were you happy with the Sally Hansen? I've tried my first one few days ago and I think its brush is too small. Now I don't know if thats the same with all their polishes..

    • September 29, 2012 / 10:58 pm

      Thanks Melita..Thanks for stopping by..I actually really like the insta dri polishes..I find the brush size to be very adequate surprisingly..and I've worn the nails all week and only seen minimal chipping πŸ™‚

      Thanks Susan..I'll stop by yours..xx
