Happy Mani Monday! I hope you all had a fun weekend. I saw Gone Girl, twice, because it was that good. The movie really did the book justice and the casting was pretty spot on. I especially loved Carrie Coon as Nick’s twin, Go. If you are a fan of the book, see it! And if you didn’t read it, what are you waiting for? Though, I took the boyfriend, who hasn’t read it, and he thoroughly enjoyed the film.
Let’s kick off the week with a patterned Dotticure using the Nailbox Pre-Fall TrendBox, curated by my pal Sarah from Chalkboard Nails. I created this look as part of my work with Nailbox but it was so fun that I just had to share it here. I wore it all weekend and got so many compliments.
Dotticure Nail Art
Sarah has such a great eye for color and these shades work so well together. To showcase that, I created a geometric polka dot pattern using NCLA Santa Monica Shore Thing, Orly Hot Tropics and Priti NYC Chrysanthos over a base of LVX Cashmere.
If you are familiar with Sarah and her tastes, you know how she loves a great white or bone shade, especially as a nail art base, and Cashmere is so her. A great fall neutral.
To create the pattern, I started with the gold, creating an X-shape from corner to corner. I thin filled inside each section, alternating between the fuchsia and turquoise shades.
For fun, I used the Essie Matte About You Top Coat, that comes in the TrendBox, on my thumb nail, and I may like that better.
