Manicure Monday (Coral and Teal Polka Dot Nails) and Monthly Pedicure (Flower Toes)!

This week's Manicure was inspired by Coral and Teal (and Polka Dots!):

Here is a look at the products I used for this week's mani:
  • Formula X nail cleanser, base coat and top coat
  • Sally Hansen #405 Coral Reef
  • Julep polish "Lissa"
  • nail dotting tools (you could use toothpicks if you don't have these tools but they are very inexpensive on ebay!)


The steps I followed are:
1. Nail cleanser and base coat
2. Paint two coats of coral (on one finger I painted a teal base for an accent)
3. Using your dotting tools apply polka dots in any size and pattern you wish1

Here are my results:
 
Super summery and very easy! I made sure to line up my dots fairly evenly because that's what I wanted but they still look great if staggered or not applied so precisely!

And, I have a cheater Monthly Manicure! Whoops, instead of doing it myself, I splurged with my bestie and went for pedicures! It's nice to give yourself a treat once in a while (clearly I treat myself more than once in a while - I have a princess complex, what can I say?).
 Anyways, how cute is it?

So bright! And I love the little flowers they can do! (I will get there one day!)! Enjoy your Mani Monday!
