Manicure gone Wild

Hi Guys,  today I have a manicure gone wild -or- more like a manicure fail on my hands. I have another party tomorrow, and this time my outfit is orange and turquoise colored. I planned it all out in my head (it really looked so pretty there lol).  

I used 3 different polish for this - China Glaze For Audrey, Tip Toe Orangentina and Wet n Wild White. I purchased the Tip Toe polish at Old Navy.

I decided to do some nail art. Now do you guys see where this is going? For my regular readers you all KNOW I can not do nail art to save my life lol.

This is what I ended up with.

I started with 3 coats of China Glaze's for Audrey. I then added an accent nail in Tip Toe Orangentina on my ring finger. To this point everything is going well in this manicure. I then decided to add dots. I have never did a doticure before, so this was my first attempt. I added my first layer of dots in China Glaze's for Audrey and then a second layer in Wet n Wild White. 

This is where it all went wrong. If you look closely above in my first picture the first layer of dots look green and the second layer of dots look yellow. This was not even close to the gorgeous picture in my head lol. I believe I rushed things too much and did not give each layer time to fully dry, so instead the colors blended together. 

The manicure still looks fun so I'm going to wear it to my party. I don't think anyone will notice about the off color dots on my nails. The odd part is in some lighting they do look white, and in other lighting I see yellow.

Next time I will allow the layers to dry better. I am not giving up on this doticure thing lol. I'm determined to get it right next go around.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. They turned out great and many at the party commented about them. You did great

  2. Great manicure! :) I love doticures!
    Can I make a suggestion though? I'm no expert, but I think if you had've done a white dot under the For Audrey, it might have made the For Audrey look teal rather than green-ish. Similar to wearing white under neons to make the neon pop :)
    I love both colours you used! I may have to find those for my stash ;)

    1. You are so right...I didn't even think to do the white first. Thak you!

  3. I think these look awesome, love the color combos :)

  4. For Audrey looks fantastic on you and the accent is a nice touch!
