Hurray! It’s time for another round of the Beauty Buffs! I missed the last theme (stripes) because my pointer sufferedย a terrible break. It’s still short, but long enough for some nail art ๐Ÿ™‚ And that’s a good thing because this is the theme I’ve been looking forward to the most;ย The Beauty Buffs – Polka Dots. I’ve had a design in mind for a while now and I was inspired by several nail artist and off course the Pop Art style and the man himselfย Roy Fox Lichtenstein.ย

I used:
OPI – Alpine Snow
OPI -Big Apple Red
Nubar – Resort Yellow
TL Design – Powder Blue Chevy
Black acrylic paint
A trimmed nail art brush from StylishNailArtShop,ย JN DANCE 24
Aย dotting tool that I bought from Norway Nails

I was really happy with how the design translated and came out, even though the dots are uneven and wonky, the mani really pops in real life and I love the eye. I thought this was going to be an easy mani, but boy was I wrong! There are so many elements and dots (don’t get me started on the dots), but this was the first time I’ve used acrylic paint instead of nail polish, and that made my life a lot more easier. All in all, I think this is one of my favorite mani’s I’ve done ๐Ÿ™‚

What do you think? Likes, dislikes?

 

Now please check out what the other ladies of The Beauty Buffs created for this theme Polka Dots:

  1. These are prefect! Seriously look like printed nail appliques! I’ve yet to try pop art nails because I know they won’t look nearly as good as these!!!! amazing!

  2. wonderful – would love to follow you but I only use email now to follow so I can access it anywhere. You should add that option – will see if I can remember to come here but I will probably loose the URL

  3. I tried that Lichtenstein eye twice for last year’s OMD challenge. Both were fails. Yours looks amazing. Great job!!!!!!!

  4. I am epically jealous of this mani! You did a fantastic job! I WISH I could do something like that on mine!

  5. I usually don’t comment on sites, but after seeing this nail art blog post I had no choice. “Uneven and Wonky” WTF! LOL, seriously, your nail art is so beautiful and STRAIGHT! I wish I had such talent. I can’t even do this with acrylics, let alone actual POLISH! Be proud girl! You’re DAM GOOD!

    • Wow! Thank you so much for all your kind words Jennifer! Hah! I’m a perfectionist and I always find faults in my own manis ๐Ÿ˜› You are too kind! This comment made my day! ๐Ÿ™‚
