Manicure Monday #1: Red & White Polka Dots

Whilst I wouldn't say I'm a slave to my nails, I'm definitely keen on a good manicure: it can really finish off an outfit and, for me, is often the only way I incorporate some colour into my all-black ensembles. These days it's rare for me to not have some variety of painted nails so I thought why not do a regular weekly feature focussing on just this. And lo! Manicure Monday is born!

Let's kick off with my newly painted Minnie Mouse inspired creation: red and white polka dots. VoilĂ :

As you can probably tell, I did these myself (no mean feat, I can tell you!). Here's what I used for the base and then the dots:

My WIWT (not so) Secret Santa, Summerdais, sent me this fantastic nail art kit, which I couldn't wait to try out. However, I quickly realised that the brush was a little too thick for my polka dot purposes so I swiftly switched to a cotton bud, with much more satisfactory results.

So there we have it. What do you think? I'm really interested to get any more (simple!) nail art tips and polish combo ideas - gimme gimme gimme!
