Halloween Polka Dots With Zoya

I love polka dot manicures; they are so easy but always look impressive. This color combination is amazing! I started with Zoya Savita and added dots in Zoya Amy and Zoya Logan.

Interlocking Dots Nail Art With Zoya

I tried my best to find the person who first did this design but my google skills were defeated. I found this post from January of 2012 saying that they'd seen the design before but I couldn't find anything older than that. I like to give credit where credit is due so if any of you know where this design originated please let me know!
While this design looks very complicated, it's actually very easy to pull off! I started with a base of Zoya India and then used Zoya Jules to complete the rest of the steps as shown in the post linked above. I love the finished manicure and might try this design again next spring with some fun pastels.

Dotted Nail Art With Zoya

I keep a Pinterest board full of nail art I'd love to try someday and today's nails were inspired by the wonderful So Nailicious and her lovely dotticure from this summer.
I used Zoya Chanelle for my base color and then picked fun summer colors for this transitional time between summer and fall. From left to right Wendy, Tilda, Rocha, & Darcy. Easy enough to do on both hands and one of my favorite manicures of the year!
 
I love this shirt! Another old Threadless t-shirt that I just had to have for some reason. Looks like a cute bunny in the first shot, but Mr. Choppy's true nature is revealed below!

Nail Art Inspired By Chalkboard Nails

I keep a Pinterest board full of nail art I'd love to try someday and I finally got around to trying one of my favorite ideas. Chalkboard Nails is one of my favorite blogs & her adorable Carmen Miranda Ruffle Manicure looked fancy but totally doable. Thanks for the great idea!
I used all 6 colors from Zoya's Tickled Summer 2014 collection for my version and I love how it turned out! Easy enough to do well on both hands too. I started with Zoya Kitridge then added dots in Ling, Rocha, Rooney, Tilda, & Wendy!

Leopard Print Nails With Zoya

I've done leopard print nails a few times before but never with such bright colors. It's such an easy pattern too pull off and you can try so many variations, like my hidden Mickey nails! For this version I started with Zoya Tilda and then added spots with my dotting tools in Zoya Seraphina and Kimber. Fun summer manicure!

My Favorite Polka Dots!

Sation Bump In Beige is a truly fantastic polish. I used 2 thin coats to start this manicure. It applies like a dream with no streaks. It's also the best match for my skintone which is exactly what I wanted for this look. I added large & small dots of Sation Snow White in no particular pattern & the results are magical. I couldn't quit staring at my nails & wanted to show them off to everyone. Good thing I have a blog for that! Nude nails with a pattern in a bold color are something I'll be doing again for sure. Also this is very easy to do, so if you like it, give it a try!
 
 
It's so cold! I can't wait for winter to end!

Even More Polka Dots!

I loved my last manicure so much that I decided to update it before moving on to something else. This one started with a base of Zoya Thandie. I then added dots of Zoya Rocky & Zoya Blu. The results are pretty impressive for something so easy. If you want to dive into nail art I highly recommend starting with some polka dots using a dotting tool.

Dotticure Inspired By Lucy's Stash

I keep a Pinterest board filled with my favorite nail art to use as inspiration when deciding what I'd like to try next. This time I chose a lovely manicure from the incomparable Lucy's Stash.
I started with a base of Zoya Darcy, then added dots of Zoya Amy & Zoya Hazel. Using a dotting tool to create nail art is really very easy to master allowing you to create manicures that look complex even though they are actually quite low on the difficulty scale. The hardest part about this one was choosing colors!
