Week 36 - Summer

To me, Summer means bright colors, crazy-fun patterns, and Summer Sales!! So when I heard that Anthropologie was having a summer sale, heck yes, I was there. I needed something quick and easy to go with my favorite of the three blouses (see below) that I ended up with from the sale.

These photos kept wanting to come out looking like MySpace boob shots.
Nope, we keep things classy up in this blog.
At first I tried to do a sort of abstract flower bed of purple and orange petals (think daisies), but it was not coming to life in any recognizable shape, form, or fashion, so took that off and started over.

Since it was late and I had a big morning ahead of me, I decided to keep it cute and simple and went with some randomly placed double-dotting.

Index finger chip made me so sad.

I ended up being pretty happy with this! It was also very easy and straightforward to do. I just painted a base color of For Audrey and then went to town dotting in random places with a medium-sized dotting tool and some purple and orange polish. Then I went back with white polish and dotted white in the center of each dot. Topcoat and done! Just make sure that everything is dry when you go for the topcoat, otherwise you run the risk of smudging your design.
And voila!

So this was actually my off-/right-hand. My left hand was sportin' the sushi design I wrote about below. To end this post, here's a picture of me at Akon posing with some Henchmen from one of my all-time favorite shows, The Venture Bros.! These guys did an awesome job, major props.
