Hi! My name is Elizabeth, from Did My Nails, and I'm very excited to be pitching in with a guest post here at Tuxarina!
Today's nails have actually been on my to-do list for a while. This past summer, for the 4th of July, I was playing with my dotting tool and stumbled onto a design that, by sheer coincidence, looked a bit like fireworks. They were a lot of fun to do, and I've wanted to have another go at them since with some different colours, so I sat down and redid the same dotted, mosaic design in some neutral and cool-toned, autumn-appropriate shades.
The base colour is Zoya Bevin, a beautifully dusty teal that leans slightly green. On top of that, with a small dotting tool, I just started making little circles, starting at different spots and radiating out until I ran out of room, in OPI Skull & Glossbones (beige-grey), OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down The Window (a pretty olive with a horrible name ;p), and OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys (dark-chocolate brown).
I've had these on for a couple of days now and have really enjoyed them. I even had a guy friend comment on them, which was kind of unusual (my guy friends never seem to notice stuff like nails), and a saleswoman today stopped me in the middle of my question to demand to know where I'd had them done. Kind of funny, since it's just some little dots in a circle, but sometimes simple can be good!
Thanks for looking/reading, and big thanks to Kelly for having me!
