NOTD: Dot To Dot Inspired.


For a while now I've been trying to hunt down some black studs for nail art. They're available online but after a disaster last year where I ended up with studs big enough to cover the width of my thumb nail and heavy enough to make my knuckles feel like they were trailing the ground I've been put off going down the online route. While having a snoop around Poundworld/Poundland on Saturday I spotted some nail art pens in the tackiest of colours but they came with black crystals which from a distance looked like studs. Admittedly they're a bit bigger than I would've liked but for a quid I can't complain.

I started to try something arty farty, I don't know where it was going but my nails started to resemble the talons of an under 11's school disco then I remembered Anna's Dot To Dot Mani. Go have a look if you haven't already, it's bloomin' lovely!

Products Used:
Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Base Coat
Essie Fiji (2 coats)
Black crystals
Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat

As I already said, the crystals are bigger than what I wanted so help a sistah out! What size do I need to be looking for online?

And a bit of a Bubba update. He's roughly 5 months now, a complete nutcase and I think having him as house cat was a good choice. Not only would I be worried about anything bad happening to him but this is what happens when I put him outside on his lead...

He spends more time crying to get back inside than playing and after 5 mins he jumped back in through the top hatch on the door.

Look at that beer belly!

    1. Haha I know what you mean, I always admire other peoples nail shape. Mine have been peeling and breaking like a mofo lately.
      He's crazy, I don't think he realises he's a cat. lol

  9. I love that nail colour, regardless of the studs. "Bubba", my daughter had a hamster called that, years ago. I'm glad he's found a good home with you.
