NOTD: Bright Dots

I have been enjoying my Julep Eden manicure but I decided to extend its life a little bit longer by doing some nail art! For some weird reason, I have been craving a purple and orange manicure (seriously, I don't know why-- I generally hate those colors together). So I grabbed two of my new Cult Nails polishes, You're My Dandy Lion (yellow) and Ay Poppy! (orange) and did some polka dot nail art.

I  actually love this combination. The colors are very bright and happy-- I am reminded of a butterfly or flowers or something.

That's my quick and dirty post for tonight!

  1. Awesome job, Cat! I love when you add some flair :) I'm so completely intimidated by any sort of freehand art, I really admire the patience and practice it takes to achieve a look. I do have a dotting tool that is as yet unused and I have no plans to change that, lol.

    1. Thanks Liesl! Dotting is so easy-- I don't even have a real dotting tool. I just use straight pins from my sewing stash. You should break yours out and try it!

  2. Cute! I like these colors together. I don't think I would have thought to wear purple and orange together! But I like it!

    1. Thanks! I usually think orange and purple shouldn't go together, but for some reason I was really digging that color combo recently.
