NAILS | Dotted Blue Gradient #CBBxManiMonday

It has rained for five days straight in Vancouver and I have had to wear socks and pants in the house. Fall is coming and though I do enjoy cooler weather, the constant rain has been a dreary reminder of what's to come over the next couple of months. Today is also the last day of my glorious staycation which has been VERY productive in terms of finally gaining some traction in purging my beauty room! I have literally been cleaning out the space every day for the last 7 days averaging about 5-6 hours/day and have filled one of our recycling bins outside to the max with old press releases and packaging and have donated NINE medium sized Aritzia bags of beauty products to friends, family, co-workers and neighbours! I still have yet to tackle my nail polish collection and that is something I will not be able to complete this week, but I am hoping that by the end of the month, I will have created some space! Then, the exciting part of getting a new desk and new storage can happen once I know what I am working with!  

Some PR products used

Today's manicure is actually the result of my cleanup because I was going through some old journals of mine from way back when and I literally found a magazine cut out from 2015 of this design from an old Essie manicure suggested by Rita Remark for Fall with gold and burgundy. I loved the idea of a blobby dotticure gradient and have been dying to use the My Little Pony polishes I picked up eons ago so off I went to blob!

Polishes Used:

Base coat - Maxus Base Coat*
Base colour - 2 coats of China Glaze "One Polished Pony"
Dots made with various sized dotting tools and China Glaze "Too Busy Being Awesome"
Top coat - CND Vinylux Gel-Like Effect Long Wear Top Coat*

Have a great day everyone and be sure to check out: Renee, Trysh and Eithne's blog and social media channels for their manicures!
