31 Day Nail Challenge - Day 11 - Polka Dots (Oops!)

Good super early morning, dear readers! :D

I apologize for not posting yesterday; I was visiting with a friend.  :)

So, today is day 11 of the 31 Day Nail Challenge.  The theme for today is polka dots.  Instead of polka dots, I did just a dot manicure (whoopsie-daisy!!).

The design I did was inspired by some manicures I saw a while ago from Reddit Laqueristas.  I unfortunately can't remember who did this design first (:'(), otherwise I would give credit for it.  (If you know who invented this, please let me know!! :D)

So, here is my not-polka-dot-but-just-dot manicure.  XD

For the base I used Sinful Colors Grecian Sun (sooooooooooooooooo beautiful!!!) and then I used a bunch of different colours for the dots (here are some I think I used: Zoya Yara, Orly Gumdrop, Sinful Colors Mint Apple, Sinful Colors Athens, Acrylic Paint and maybe some frankens?).

This was really fun to do! :D

Have a wonderful day, everyone!!! :D
