Crumpet's DC33 Day 1: Dots

Good morning fellow polish lovers!

Today I have the first mani from The Crumpet's 33 Day Challenge for you, and it is dots!  One of the first mani's that I ever did once I got interested in nail polish was a dotticure so I am really happy that the first challenge is the same.

China Glaze VIII, Nubar Lemon Sherbert, China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, natural light
I started with my dotticure with 2 easy coats of China Glaze VIII(which I found on the clearance table at Sally's and did a little dance).  I absolutely love this colour!  It is such a dark aubergine that in some lights it looks dark, but more sophisticated.  To contrast with the lovely darkness I added a random pattern of Nubar's Lemon Sherbert and China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, two pastels that I probably wouldn't have used without the darkness of the base to offset them. As usual this is topped with a coat of SV.

Between this challenge and the #fallingfornailart challenge that I started yesterday I am going to be trying to post Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, lets hope work doesn't get in the way too much.  I am a few weeks ahead in the execution of the mani's so I just need to edit and compose my posts.

Until Wednesday, polish happy!
