Hot pink with Polka Dots!

I was on the phone with an old friend--that lovely, quirky gal that got me hooked on nail art to begin with--and while we were chatting I was inspired to pull out my polish and take my beat up nails out of retirement. I filed them nicely and gave them 2 coats of Nina Ultra Pro Passion Pink, then took my dotting tools and made large black dots using Claire's Black Hole, and smaller white ones inside with Sally Hansen White Tip. I used the good old Seche Vite for a quick seal. :) It's a super happy manicure, in tribute to an uplifting phone call and a great friend. Thanks Alicia!

So I've been AWOL, coming back in only to post one winter mani and before that I think it was Halloween. This winter has been super hard on my eczema, and I've been concentrating hard on my Tapestry and other fibre work that does a lot of damage to my fingers and nails. I've also been suffering some terrible morning sickness the past 2.5 months, and that hasn't made it easy to drag out the stinky polishes and remover. :p

I do hope to keep on making nail art posts, even if they are few and far between. Sorry to everyone I usually visit and leave notes, because I've been absent there also. Hope everyone has been having a wonderful few months since Christmas. Sending out best wishes!

  1. This is adorable! I hope your morning sickness eases up soon. Pregnancy can be so miraculous, and yet so difficult!

  2. Thank you Laynie! I hope so too. I got pretty spoiled the first time, having next to no morning sickness, so I shouldn't complain. :)

  3. Oooo, congrats! no worries about posts that are few or far between....your nails look fabulous. Take care

  4. Thanks twinkies! The nails are finally wearing and I have a chip as of this morning, so it lasted beautifully! I'll have to redo them tonight or tomorrow!

  5. I really like them :-) they remind me of lamp work glass beads.
