LDOS: Dotting tool summer fun

Hey dolls, hope you all have been having a good week. Ive had a busy one with being back to work and my nephews birthday this weekend. I was off today so finished making his cup cakes and dyed my hair this week, ill post a pic soon of that. So today I decided I would do another challenge and do a mani that ill wear till probably sunday. I'm going up for the party after work on Saturday so I wont have time again till then to do the nails.

So for the Lazy Days of Summer Challenge tonight I decided to try a ruffle mani. I figure this deals with the summer as alot of bathing suits have ruffles and the bright colors just sort of enhance it.

For the ruffles I used the following colors, once I went through them all I just repeated the pattern till I did the whole nail :) I also used my largest dotting tool for this.

China Glaze Pink Plumeria
China Glaze Purple Panic
China Glaze Hey Sailor
Orly Melt Your Popsicle
China Glaze Sun-Kissed
China Glaze I'm With the Lifeguard
Nails Inc Baker Street
China Glaze Sweet Hook


I loveee the way this turned out. Ill definatly try this technique again with a different color combo. But its cute and doesn't take long at all. Id say just over an hour while getting distracted :)

Now I thought I'd show you the cupcakes I made for my nephews 3rd birthday. He wanted them to be cars themed!


I got the toys from bulk barn as they were way to cute to pass up. I also wanted to let you all know that I changed some of the prices on my blog sale :) I hope you all have a great weekend and Ill be back on sunday <3

Now if you want to see more awesome summer head on over to visit the other lovely ladies who are participating in this challenge!!!
