Rainbow Polka Dot Nails

It seems like quite a while since I last did a nails-based post, so that's what I'm offering today. There's a story involved here: some time ago I arrived at work on a Monday morning to the delightful surprise that my desk had been decorated with an explosion of colourful polka dots! It really boosted my spirits, so this is the inspiration for today's design, which graced my nails for the whole of last week. Yes, I'm a little slow with posting, but hey, better late than never, right?!

I started with a base coat of Barry M's Matt White. Then using my super trusty dotting tool I did diagonal rows of dots in pastel colours, starting with the centre and working outwards. Here is the end result: not bad, eh?


And here's the inspiration: my desk!

And the sweet sweets that were included <3
Where did my nails go?! (Guffaw)
What do you think? Have you ever taken inspiration from unusual places?
