UCLA Manicure

I spent the day on Saturday with my niece at UCLA.  She wanted to see the campus and she knew I was more than willing to take her. :)

I was going to do a french manicure in the blue and yellow colors of my Alma mater, but my manicure took too long to dry so I opted to do something else.




























Here is what I used:

Base: 3 coats of Sephora by OPI "Havana Dreams"
Yellow Dots: China Glaze "Happy Go Lucky" and "Lemon Fizz"
Blue Dots:  OPI "Absolutely Alice"
Top Coat: OPI Top Coat and Seche Vite.














The SOPI, was streaky and difficult and required 3 coats and took forever to dry.  The dots were issue and I had no issues there.  I used 3 different sized dotting tools, because i want the dots to be different in circumference.  I always strive to put y dots in a nice pattern, but it never works out for me, thus I always end up doing random dots :)


Of course I was a dork and forgot my camera, so I can't show you any wonderful shots of my niece and I at the Bruin Bear, I had to wait and take these shots once I got home , I'm such a dork..LOL!















Just imagine that the 2 people you see lounging by the fountain are my and my niece..LOL :)















But here is a pic of "A" Bear......














I won some fimo canes in a giveaway and I've been dieing to use the bear..LOL, it look kinda out of place, but I loved it!

Very nice mani, I love the random size dots and the different texture Absolutely Alice gave against the solid cream dots :)

Such pretty colors! UCLA really does have some of the best school colors I've seen. I really wanted the SOPI color, but I'm not sure if I have the patience for it. :(

Cute mani, I love how the blue dots almost looks sponged on-nice effect to dot with a glitter polish!

I love Polka Dots and those are some great dots. The combo is fresh and summery.
