I wanted to start with a base of a good, rich red so I chose Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Right Said Red. I used 2 coats. Dry time on this is a little slow, be sure to let your coats dry thoroughly in between. I really liked the look of the matte base for the dots shown in my previous pink polka dot mani so I topped the RSR with 2 coats of China Glaze Matte Magic. I love how the red looked matti-fied.
After the base color was good and dry, I used a medium sized dotting tool and Pure Ice Superstar to apply the polka dots. I let that dry overnight, then had Amanda draw in the little black bows with black acrylic paint (she prefers using acrylic paint for detail work as opposed to polish).
I am really loving these. So cute.
Now that Amanda is back to hold the fort down I'm jetting off to Boston for the week. See you on the flip side!
