Retro Polka Dots

One of my very best friends, Tuli, recently sent me a care package. Seriously, I now have my holy grail hand lotion - I'm so sad, because it's Israeli! She sent me all kinds of goodies, amazing food, and some really pretty polish. Two of the bottles are a brand called Apple, Tuli tells me that they had a great line of nail care products and now they are making polish. The two she sent me were Jungle Green and Blue Sky. I was looking at them side by side and I thought how cute they would be paired together in a polka dot scheme - and I was right. This has a retro color feel to me, and I loved it. I used Blue Sky on all my nails but the ring finger, with coordinating Jungle Green dots. On the ring I reversed it. I want to mention that these polishes have a really nice brush! It's probably the perfect size, not as wide as the Pro Wide by OPI, just a little smaller. Blue Sky turned out to be a perfect jelly creme, and Jungle Green was straight creme. I used three coats for Blue Sky and two coats for Jungle Green.
Ugh. I don't even know why my fingers are such a weird tone in these photos - I know I'm yellow toned, but this was just strange. Oh well, the polish colors are accurate! You'll probably note that I didn't wait long enough for my polka dots to dry before I applied top coat, there's a bit of drag.







Aren't these cute together? I loved it. I'm not the world's best at polka dots, but I keep trying them, because they're so much fun.
