OPI Smitten with Mittens lasted forever on me. Alas, it chipped, so I decided to do some dots. This is two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls as a base. The red dots are Rescue Beauty Lounge Chinoise and the sparkly green ones are China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses. I've had that China Glaze since it came out in like 2010 and I still haven't actually used it for a full manicure. Whoops. I didn't wait long enough between the dots and topcoat, so that's why there are some smudges. But I think it turned out pretty cute. Once upon a time I owned a dotting tool, but I long ago misplaced it. I made these dots using a bobby pin instead. Now looking down at my nails makes me smile. And I'm going to need to smile over the coming days. There is some major studying ahead.
And yes, I'm still trying to take it easy and rest. I'm doing my best to get plenty of sleep. I have a presentation today, which is the thing that I'm probably the most stressed out about. When it's over I think I'll feel a lot better and I can just study in bed all weekend while intermittently watching Sex and the City and Frasier. Sounds pretty good to me (aside from the studying and memorizing slides thing). I feel overwhelmed, but it'll all be over soon.
So, the dots. Not bad for a bobby pin, right?
