I Heart the Daily Nail

So recently Melissa |aka. The Daily Nail| posted paint swatch inspired manicure called On The Dot
I thought it was so fun and summery I had to recreate it!

Here's my version of her cute mani!

For more and Larger pics:

For my version, I used all Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polishes: Cherry Red, Sun Kissed, Mellow Yellow, Green With Envy and Blue Me Away.  And to create the graded shades of dots I mixed them with Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure Polish in Lavender Cloud.
And, as usual to make the dots, I used my good ol' dressmaker's pin that I stuck in the eraser of a pencil.

oh yeah.  i guess this also can count for my fails vs. nails battle score making it now 5-3


  1. Definitely a great mani! AWESOME re-creation!!

  2. This is really cool. Melissa does great work and I love your interpretation if it! I have to say I really like your base being more "transparent" because now it reminds me of summer glasses (like the bright plastic ones you serve tea and lemonade in)

    :-) Love your blog! you should check mine out too at :-)
