Day 11 - Dots! featuring Zoyas

Hey guys! I am really exhausted tonight and feeling sort of down, but I do have my first doticure to show you :D This manicure features even moar Zoya nail polish! Whoa! I love Zoya and I love flash promos. Surprisingly, this is my first dotty manicure. I really enjoyed doing it because it was quick and fun, and I think the results look really great.

dotty colors

My base color is one of the nudies from the Touch collection, but I don't think it suits my skin tone very well after looking at all of these pictures :0/ I thought maybe my "lobster hands" in the sunlight lamp photo were from the pressure of holding the bottle, but no, look! I am have awkward reddish tones near my cuticles in alllll the pictures. The dot colors (left and right) are two Feel collection colors (whose names escape me but I can check if you want to know), and the middle color in the picture is Amanda (which Rachel Zoe used in her shows at NYFW and is supposed to be nudie? But would look like brown on me according to what I'm feeling from those dots).

There you have it! In other news here, I'm working out some details for a giveaway since I have so very many lovely followers now!!! Look for a giveaway post sometime in the next few days; I was thinking about starting it on the 15th (Saturday) as I would be roughly half-way through my 31 day challenge, but I'm getting antsy about sharing the prize with you so perhaps a little sooner?

Don't forget to check out the other ladies - Bec at Lacquer Dreams, Julia at Julia Loves Nails, Linda at Nail Polish Enthusiast, Alyssa at Fancy Phalanges and Jenna at The Key to Jennasis, Kirsten at Geeky Owl and April at Munia's Nails (it's really interesting to see how similar and vastly different some of our interpretations are)

    1. Thank you! I like the layers, too, so I didn't put on any top coat on to keep the 3D effect

  6. I agree, it looks a bit vintage - I love the mellow, calm feel. I've been rocking Pandora as a base lately, she is a pretty close match for me and gives me "mannequin hands", but I usually add a pop of something to her.

    1. Thanks! I think this is Minka, but I do like Pandora, too. I'm much more into nudes lately
