Yellow and Blue French Tip Polka Dots

Pure Ice's Excuse Me
My niece, Victoria, had her 4th birthday and she wanted a yellow birthday. So, of course I had to do a yellow manicure that was bright and whimsical!  I had no yellow in my stash, so I bought this Pure Ice "Excuse Me" and "Celestial" at the Wal-mart in PA. They had SO MUCH more Pure Ice than MY Wal-mart, it was hard not to succumb to the temptation of buy, buy, buy!

Pure Ice's Celestial
At first, my intention was to paint alternating colors on each hand with an accent ring finger nail in the opposing color and polka dots all over each nail, a la Rebecca Likes Nails; but I only got my pinkie done and I was OVER it!  It didn't help that I was using a cut off toothpick. :o)  Anyways, I decided to take a shortcut and only do my tips.
I am starting to notice that the Pure Ice brand is really great at making these metallic finish colors. These are both metallic and super shiny.  The Celestial went on smoothly with only two coats, and the Excuse Me went on in three.  They dry super fast, even before I applied the Seche Vite top coat.
 I can't wait to get my dotting tools that I just ordered and practice with them!
