Wonky hearts are All I Can Blue for you

Hi loves! Sorry I missed a post on Sunday, I was crazy tired and just didn't feel like editing pictures and such, that rarely happens! Luckily I did feel good enough to quickly edit some for you guys tonight. When I posted this manicure on Instagram yesterday it received quite a good respons, so I figured I should show you the whole thing quickly :).

For this manicure I used Catrice It's All I Can Blue. This was so hard to capture, it is both soft and bright at the same time and way more cornflower than my pictures show. Check out these swatches by Nihrida, they are way better!

It applied not too bad, you have to be a bit careful because it can be streaky, but it covered in 2 coats. It dries ugly so it really needs a base and I had some minor bubbling. I did use a different basecoat than I normally do (a england basecoat instead of my usual Essence).

After it dried enough, I grabbed a dottingtool (1 small one and a bigger sized one) and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. On my pinky and index I did 3 rows of polkadots. my middle and ringfinger got lil' hearts, and my thumb got 2 hearts!

I really like this look and those hearts will be appearing on my nails again soon I guess! Do you like them too?

  8. Aww thanks Angie! I used a normal/medium sized dotting tool and let the polish rest a bit so it was slightly thicker. I did try on a nailwheel at first to get the feeling :).
