Manicure Monday #4 – Dots

27 april, 2020
Manicure Monday

Right, so yet another week has passed by in these strange times of social distancing, which also means yet another manicure creation to show you guys.

How another week has already come and gone is just beyond what I can grasp , so lets just move onto what I used on my nails and how I got those very uneven dots on my nails to look as though they were meant to look that way. After all, it is manicure monday !


One thin coat of Yves Rocher Nail Polish in the color Magnolia allover the nails.

Let dry for a couple of minutes.

With a toothpick you dip the tip of the toothpick into the color of your choice. I used Essie Nail Polish in the shade Pedal Pushers and carefully placed the toothpick onto the nail to create an uneven dot. And then another one.

And then another one. Until it looks something like this :

Finally , once the dots have tried I gently applied Top Coat by Yves Rocher and let it dry completely.

I am really enjoying experimenting with nail-polish designs , the simpler the better ( but not as simple as one and the same color on all nails) and I feel like I’ve awakened the 12 year old version of myself in doing so.

I don’t think I have shared this story in the past but I used to do peoples manicures for money as a kid. Yeah, I know – a tad sketchy but I ended up buying my first laptop that way and I was very affordable. So you can imagine the amount of nails I painted to be able to afford my laptop ( which I treated like royalty).

I think I charged between 3-5€ to do a full manicure. Including the cutting of cuticles.

Do not sweat it though, I am not planning on changing careers and becoming a manicurist – but I will keep sharing my nail-adventures here with you for the time being !

For all you Swedish speakers out there, here is a list of books for self-development the editors here at Herway have chosen to recommend to all of you. Perfect now that we all seem to have a bit more time on our hands.
