Merry Turquoise Polka dots

April 2:

Happy April! Is it really month four of 2011...I guess it is. And since we are already in April that means the end of my giveaway is approaching. But do not worry, you still have a week to enter which you can do here! The response so far has been great and quite a lot of you wanted to see more nail art so I have some for you today.

This manicure was intended as a scotch tape manicure but I fell in love with polka dots and went with them instead. Two weeks ago when I met up with my friend to watch Jane Eyre we traded polish and I ended up with OPI's "Merry Midnight" and "Austentatious Turquoise," both of which I had wanted to try for awhile. Sadly, they are returning to their owner soon but our time together was quite fun.

I painted three coats of each polish on my nails. MM surprised me at its opacity, I thought it would have been more sheer, and the formula was a bit think. AT on the other hand was a sheer mess. It looked better in the bottle but still fun on my nails. I don't think I will be purchasing this in the future though.

After letting the polish dry for a bit I added polka dots in one corner of the nail in the alternate color. The effect of both polishes was pretty neat in polka dot form. I will probably be doing this again with some other colors!

Don't forget to head over and enter my giveaway if you haven't so far, thanks to everyone who has already!

Until next time,
Happy painting!
