Sparkly, Multicoloured, Polka-Dotted Kid & Deborah Lippmann's Ruby Red Slippers

Well these entries will be short because I’m super tired… I think my little nieces gave me a cold. One good thing about having them around though is there are more nails to paint.

Here are multi coloured polka dots and sparkles on my little niece Meredith. I snapped these pictures as soon as we were done painting them because knowing her she’ll have them all scratched off before you know it! I used lots of lacquers for these: American Apparel’s Neon Yellow & Neon Violet, China Glaze’s Blue Year’s Eve and OPI’s Gone Gonzo, Rainbow Connection and an OPI Top coat. I used toothpicks for dotting.

Here is three layers of Deborah Lippmann’s Ruby Red Slippers over two coats of OPI’s Black Onyx. I did the black undercoat in hopes of reducing tip wear (I found the sheer base contributed to quick tip wear on Lippmann’s Across The Universe, which otherwise wore very well). I think the black made it a little darker then I’d like so next time I wear it I will try it with a red base or none at all just to see how that compares. It is similar to OPI’s Mr. Right Now and Getting Miss. Piggy With It below, but much more sophisticated looking overall.
