Turquoise & Navy Nails with Polka Dots

Today's mani was another nail look inspired by a fashion blogger! If you follow me on Pinterest (which you certainly don't have to... I'm not doing anything too terribly interesting over there) you may have noticed that my Nail Polish board has the occasional fashion blogger's outfit thrown into the mix. That's because the contents of my nail polish box are way cooler than the contents of my closet, so it's often easier for me to wear cool "outfits" on my nails than it is for me to wear them on my bodaayyyyy.

HERE IS WHAT I MEAN.

Exhibit A: The Outfit I Pinned

Haylee over at Threaded is wearing this in her blog's profile picture:

And I was all... Oh heeeeey, I like what you've done there with ya polka dots 'n ya navy 'n ya minty pleats! I'ma put that all over my naaaaails!

SO I DID.

Exhibit B: My naaaaails bitchessss!

I'm not even wearing a topcoat in these pictures but the polish is so shiny that I couldn't avoid the glares!

I used a navy Love & Beauty polish, Essie's Turquoise & Caicos, and Sinful Colors' Snow Me White:

  4. Also, I'm so jealous of your hiking photos - I used to rock climb and miss the mountains so much! Where you live looks gorgeous.

    1. You can live vicariously through me!! I never would have thought I'd be living in Canada, but here I am and I'm nottttt mad about it ;) Vancouver has it all - mountains, beaches, the city life... <3 it! I've got more hiking photos to come, plus I'm going on a massive hiking/camping trip this weekend so I'll def take lots of pics there!

    1. Thanks Amber! I use a dotting tool, but I think it also helped that this was a very fresh bottle of white polish - so it wasn't sticky or gloopy. The dots don't always come out this perfectly, I have to be honest ;)

  7. I.Love.This. IlovethisIlovethisIlovethisIlovethis!!! Amazing interpretation of your inspiration!! I'm soo cheap but I seriously just need to get my act together and get a bottle of Turquoise and Caicos. Every time I see it on someone, I'm all: THAT IS SO PRETTY but it's just so expensive for so little! Yeah, I know, I'm kind of ridiculous. Ha! Thanks for linking up! :)
