Artsy Wednesday: Inspired by jewellery

Today my mani is inspired by a pair of earrings I bought in Europe (Germany I think, I can't quite remember) when I went on a trip there for a conference in Norway in 2010. It was my first time in Europe, and my first big holiday with the boyfriend.

Here's my design:





Base: ulta3 Silver Grey (I've never worn it on its own before, but it makes an amazing background!), dots Wet n Wild Craze Jade, China Glaze Glittering Garland, ulta3 Metal.

I have great memories of Berlin, and I'd love to go back some day for longer. Here is where I use this as an excuse to post gratuitious holiday snaps:

Best window display ever or what?

Yay alternative energy!

    1. I think I've finally gotten the hang of dotting evenly, lining them up was pretty easy - I just started from a corner and did each diagonal line one by one and lined the dots up with the old ones horizontally and vertically.

  4. Pretty earrings! And a great mani to match too! Very nicely dotted. (I'm about to try something similar--hope it come out even half that well!)

    1. Ooh, good luck! I'm pretty new to dotting tools, this is definitely the best so far... poor righty didn't look too good though ;)

      Haha! I berated him afterwards because he wasn't aligned well enough... I think he looks like he ran into the wall and stunned himself...
