Nail Art: Olive Green + Tropical Lemon Polka Dots

The other night I planned to make some hair bows for my little girl. It was an opportunity because husband was at home and will look after the kids. But upon looking at my nails which were so crooked and ugly with all the dry skin and cuticle I decided to do something about it. Just in time my point fingernail had grown enough for a manicure after the cut it experienced the week before.

Remember the olive green nail polish from Etude House that I have posted before? I used it again because this color really matched my handmade jade bracelet.



I wanted something catchy for this week's manicure so I decided to have an accent nail using the Tropical Lemon of San San from HBC. 


I thought I'll be very much contented with plain colors, but the other side of me was whispering "when was the last time you decorated your nails? Go for nail art now!" Thus, the polka dot nail art was created... the easiest nail art I can think of.


Using the same nail lacquers, I marked my nails with random dots, then sealed it with a fast dry top coat Seche Vite. And look at the result? Quite cool, huh! Summery still!

I asked husband to take some shots of both hands, just to let you see how these nail art looks like on my 10 fingernails.


Overall impact! Neat, clean and WOW! hihihi ☺

P.S. the photos above were taken using my smartphone, the assistive light app is really of great help! ☺

  8. I never imagined olive green can look good as a nail polish. I hope I can be adventurous on painting my nails colorful. I don't mind a bloody red, though :D

  11. You are good. If I were to do that on my nails, I would have a hard time getting those even dots.

  13. I love your nail polish posts! The combination of colors you used this time really works. I also enjoy having my nails done in pretty colors, but I haven't had the time (or the budget) to go out and have them done these past few months. I used to paint my nails myself, but lately I just have been too lazy to do that.
