Crumpet's Nail Tarts: April Tri-Polish Challenge (Belated) Day 4

Helloo!  So, this is very late (my life, and lab work, went "AAAAAAAH"), but here is my fourth and last Tri-Polish Challenge for April!  Tri-Polish Challenge refresher course: it's run by Crumpet's Nail Tarts, and every month we are assigned three colors, choose three corresponding nail polishes, then make four manicures using those polishes!

So, here is number 4!

So, I went for a fun, daisy-ish floral pattern for these.  I started with a base of Essie Fear or Desire, then used Arden's gradient method with China Glaze Make an Entrance.  (Sorry, I totally forgot to take midway pictures. Use your imagination!)

Last, I used a nail (the kind you hammer into the wall) to make five dots in a circle with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White Out for the petals of the flower, and a central dot in L'Oreal Not a Cloud in Sight for the, you know, center part of the flower (I'm a biologist, I swear!).

Overall, I loved it! Plus, it was super easy and did not take long at all.  The thing I love the most about dotted manicures is how quickly you can do them.  Also, tons of super talented bloggers did Tri-Polish Challenge manis as well.  Check them out below!

  1. I told you this the other day when I saw it on your hands, but I love this so much. Also, I want to borrow that pink color!
