Mani Monday – China Glaze Don’t Honk Your Thorn and Julep Flora and Leah

IMG_4698.JPG

So apparently I’m hooked on dotticures this month. I had a great time putting this one together using China Glaze Don’t Honk Your Thorn from the City Flourish collection that came out this past spring. This isn’t normally a colour I would buy at all. My mom bought it and it doesn’t go with her skin tone so I got it. Isn’t it great when that happens?

This is actually a gorgeous nude colour though with just a bit of shimmer, hardly noticeable at all but adds interest to the colour, imo.

Then I took a dotting tool and added large dots of both Julep Leah (green) and Julep Flora (purple) and then added small dots around those. Then topped with a thick coat of Seche Vite, which is my go-to, favourite top coat.

Nail Polish Canada 200 polishes giveaway

Want to win 200 polishes? I know I sure do. Lucky for us, Nail Polish Canada is giving away up to 200 polishes in their Great Polish Giveaway of 2014. So far some really gorgeous stuff has been added to the pot including Sugar Fix by NCLA, Electric Circus by Cirque and Candy Mountain by Rainbow Honey.

So, the way the contest works is that bloggers (like yours truly) nominate polishes they would like to see in the giveaway and we can host extra entries on the blog for the giveaway. So I nominated Fairy Dust by China Glaze. I have loved it since Lipsticks and Lullabies wrote about it in her A Few of My Favourite Things post. Then she used it in the following manis (both pictures used with permission):
