It can't be summer without a swimsuit! Today I have some fun, vibrant yellow nails inspired by the song Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. As you can imagine I've got some polka dots, some yellow polishes, and an accent nail with a tiny bikini painted on it ;D Check 'em out!
About the DesignI was never really clear on if the bikini was yellow and the dots were a different color, or if the bikini had specifically yellow polka dots? For today's manicure I went with a yellow suit with white/off-white polka dots. This feels like a really different style for me because I don't usually reach for semi-sheer glass fleck yellow polishes (who wants VNL with a sheer yellow polish?!) but I do really like the end result of this manicure. It's very cheerful!
The Polishes & SuppliesI did 3 coats of Color Club Daisy Does It on most nails - it's a beautiful glass fleck polish with duo chrome flecky bits that shift from gold to green from their Take Wing collection. I completed my shimmery nails with polka dots in OPI My Vampire is Buff and french tips in Color Club Almost Famous.
For my bikini accent nail I first did 3 coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff to reach opacity. Then I freehanded the bikini with some of my tiny brushes and Color Club Almost Famous. Finally I added the necessary polka dots with a needle-point dotting tool, and some touches of highlights and lowlights to give it some additional depth.
