Hello my lovelies! I'm so glad it's Saturday today, you have no idea! I'm amazed by how fast time flies these days. I'm sure this weekend will be over in a jiff and it's gonna be time for those Monday Blues again. But meanwhile I have a couple of nail art posts for you and the one from today has a retro theme. Whenever I think of the 50's all I see in my head are pastels, polka dots and bows. So I tried to incorporate that in today's fun manicure. Here's what I came up with!
I started with a base of China Glaze Kinetic Candy, which I also posted about here. For some reason my new light box makes it look more vivid than it actually is. It's a powder blue that is pastel enough to go well with the 50's theme. I then did some stamping over it using my no name white stamping polish. Unfortunately, I had forgotten the bottle unscrewed from the day before and it got very thick. I tried to thin it with lots of Seche Restore but it was still gloopy so the dots didn't come out perfect. Some of them are really distorted and I apologize for that.
The plates I used for this are from the first Cheeky set and they are CH1 for the bow and CH6 for the dots. I definitely like this bow better than the one on m59, which is huge and can't fit on my small nail beds.

This manicure was very fun to do but I admit I crave a lot of vampy fall shades on my nails at the moment so I didn't keep it on for long. I'm sure I'm gonna revisit this color scheme next spring though. Please check out the other posts from the Sat-ART-Day Club ladies today!
