Cool Toned Dots with NYC City Samba Shades

(**Press Samples**)
 When in doubt... Or just plain lazy.. DOTS!!!! This simple mani brought to you by shades from the New York Color City Samba Collection ;D. 
 I started with bases of NYC Ocean Blue and Palm Tree. Both of these shades have a great formula. They both felt a bit crelly to me, which I loved. I used Two coats of both colors. For my dots I used NYC Amazon Green. This shade is an odd and dated mint FROST.. A Mint frost... Anyways.. I decided to "make it work" by using it to create little pearly dots over my vibrant base colors. I think this is the only way I could ever enjoy such an odd color. 
 As for my base colors Ocean Blue and Palm Tree... They are actually quite wonderful! The formulas are really easy to work with, and I had no issues with staining. I finished off my nails with a top coat of Seche Vite. 

I am so ready for the weekend :D. Also, don't forget that I am taking requests for tutorials! So, don't be afraid to throw suggestions out there!! Happy Weekend!

    Just Cute! I also like to use the clear NYC In a New York Color Minute in Grand Central Station as a top coat. (Never had a polish actually name their clear polish so cleverly! ) It dries quickly, goes on easy, and it is so affordable. I have most of the others, but I am having really good luck with this one. Who would have "thunk"! :)

  2. Love how perfect your polka dots are!

  3. DAT BLUE!! Seriously, it's amazing!

  4. I love it! :) That 'mint frost' turned out fine as dots. :)

  5. Cristina! I love your new layout ^^! So pretty.

    This manicure somehow works, even with that slightly weird mint frost shade ;-). You always make it work!
