NOTD: Polka Dot Crazy

Now that my internet situation has finally been sorted out, I can share my Easter weekend manicure with you! After browsing Pinterest, I set my sights on a pastel-hued polka-dotted manicure. This was the result. (Apologies for the less-than-neat edges: I took this photo before cleaning up the white dots.)

The polishes I used were:
Mint/ duck-egg = Tip Top Nail Chic in Cha Cha Cha (seen previously here and here)
White = Revlon Nail Enamel in 22 White on White (seen previously here)

As for my USA-inspired look last week, I did the polka dots by individually dotting with a bobby pin. (I put a drop of polish on a piece of plastic, and dip my pin into in before each dot.) They didn't come out absolutely perfect, but I'm happy with how they turned out (especially my right hand - normally any nailart I do with my left hand looks.... interesting.). I didn't use any top coat this time, as top coats have a tendency to smudge nail art no matter how dry your polish is.

What nail polish did you wear over Easter?
