Guest Post: Sparkly Polkadot Manicure

Today's Guest Blogger is the Nail Diva from aviDlianN~ She is fairly new to the blogging community so let's all make her feel right at home! If you had not noticed, I am terrible at nail art, and I really appreciate people who have the patience and the skill to do nail art! So Today the Nail Diva is going to share with us a totally gorgeous mani!She makes it sound so simple! For more nail polish swatches and more nail art, check out her blog.

Hello beautiful readers! Let me start off by telling you how quickly I jumped at the opportunity to do a guest post on Nancy's blog. Do I stalk her blog? Yes, most of the time. Am I proud of it? Not very. Will I stop anytime soon? Don't hold your breath! =]
I started my blog off very recently and I'm so happy to be a part of this amazing community of beauty lovers. I love that so many people share a huge obsession with makeup including nail polish. My heart is split equally between makeup and nail polish but I blog mainly about polish (because I'm better at it). But every time I see Nancy's posts I decide I need to buy just that one item. And on continues this never-ending cycle. I'd have to say my favorite cosmetic brand is MAC. I know that sounds cliche, but really they have the prettiest lipsticks and eyeshadows, though I'm not a fan of their foundation. Overall, they're my favorite! So today, I want to share with you a manicure that portrays me and my blog all at once. I hope you like it!

I'm gonna do this like on my blog where I explain and list the things I used in the pictures. For this design I used Gabrini Multivitamin in 314 as my base color. Next, I applied a sheer glitter polish (mine had no label) but you can use a polish like Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Disco ball or any other glitter polish you'd like. Then I used Seventeen Super Shine in 286 to create the dots and the bow. I used a thin brush to paint on the bows. And finally I sealed it with topcoat. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed writing this for you. And thanks to Nancy a million and one times for letting me be a part of your beautiful blog. And have a great day!

Thank you for being a part of The Dark Side of Beauty! Seriously, props to you for being able to do that by hand. This is just so cute! If I did this it would look like a Wookie had painted my nails and then, in desperation, mauled by finger nails off! xD
