After making my own dotting tools and realizing how easy a polka dot manicure is, I couldn’t wait to try another version. The timing of my weekend manicure conveniently coincided with preparation for the Ladies Night I mentioned in my last post. When discussing manicures to demonstrate, polka dots were an easy choice. They’re everywhere, they feel fresh for spring, and they’re a super easy DIY. I decided on a classic take with a periwinkle base and crisp white dots.
The party was way too much fun not to share, so I was sure to snap a few pics throughout the night. It turns out champagne and DIY nail art is an irresistible combination, and the manicure table stayed packed all night. Pams & Kin provided the polish in everything from pastels to neon to glitter. Content with my manicure, I jumped in and helped a few ladies, and in the process learned how to apply a leopard design thanks to my lovely co-hosts, Parris and Kiri. And, of course, there was a little shopping. I tried to convince myself that it was possible to walk out of Mira Mira without a bag in hand. It’s not. I walked out with a bag containing two pieces that I cannot wait to wear. (Stay tuned!) A big thank you to everyone who came out! And, a special thank you to Mira and Tara of Mira Mira and Parris and Kiri!
