OMD3 - Day 6 - Polka Dot

Hi all!

During the month of July the Oh Mon Dieu Part 3 (OMD3) Nail Art Challenge is hosted by Brijit from Brijits Digits, Jacqui from Craftynail, Jemma from Eeeek! Nail Polish! and Lindsay from Nail That Accent!. There are awesome prizes to be won just for joining up, no judging or voting involved! For more information how to enter read this page here!

Today: Polka Dot. And only two photos. I did these nails in May for a wedding, to match my purple with white dotted Hell Bunny swing dress. I didn't photograph the polishes I used... oops. I'll give you the list though.

Polishes used:
  • I Love Nail Polish - Grape Alicious
  • Sinful Colors - 101 Snow Me White
  • Essence - gel polish base coat
  • Essence - gel polish top coat

As a side note, these photos were taken 5 days after I did them. To have them look like this without chipping is thanks to the Essence base and top coats. Mostly the base coat to be honest. Other base coats will lift off my nails within 2 days, this one stays put. I'm glad to have found a base coat that likes my nail chemistry. And these days I get bored with my nails before they chip instead of the other way around like before!

Base: 2 coats of polish, then dotted with my largest dotting tool.

Love, Brethil

The others:


  1. I'm obsessed with the purple polish! I can never pass up a good purple, it's too bad that I don't know where to buy essence polish in the US.

      I'm not sure if there's many stores that carry them though.
