Robot Dots & Sad Nail Polish Purchasing News


Orly Rococo A Go-Go, Sally Hansen Celeb City

I did this dotty manicure about a week ago, but then kind of forgot about it. There's only a photo of one hand because my camera battery ran out before I could get the second hand! I'm going to call this mani my robot mani because it's all metallic and robot-like! And I love robots! Strangely, all the comments I got on this manicure were from men! Over the course of my day two guys mentioned my "nice" nails! 

Orly Rococo A Go-Go is such a beautiful shade. I hadn't really intended to get any of the other Mineral FX polishes, but after seeing this one in real life I decided to get Rock It as well! (As well as Androgynie and Fowl Play while I'm buying Orlys). They haven't arrived yet but I'm quite excited! 

On the subject of polishes that have not arrived, I have decided to ban myself from buying nail polish for at least 2 months due to my recent multiple purchasing sprees of epic proportions. I was adding all of my 'in transit' polishes to my spreadsheet of polishes when I realised that at this moment I have 27 nail polishes coming in the mail from various places. 27! That's more than most regular people even own! And I've bought 4 retail in the past week on top of that! 31! That's an even more ridiculous number! I've just been a bit more nail polish crazy lately than usual it seems! Luckily, I've already bought the only polishes I want from OPIs new Holland collection, as well as my picks from the Nicki Minaj collection and China Glaze's Electropop collection. So there's not really anything new coming out for the next little while that I will desperately need. 

So, I am on a purchasing ban until let's say, April 1st, 2012. I wonder how big my 'want' list will be by then!

    1. I usually get them at Transdesign if I'm buying online. Lately though I've been getting quite a few at David Jones, even though you have to pay retail there!

  5. I do love a good dotty manicure, as I've said before and I was wondering what you use to apply the dots on your nails because I use a bobbing pin but sometimes the drops can be too big or I leave a mark from the pin. I'm currently rocking the leopard print manicure I found on here first and followed the China Glaze video, I really do love this blog!

    1. I use an embossing tool, which I got from Spotlight (an Aussie craft store) for some ridiculously cheap price, like 70c or something. If you go in Google Images and search Embossing Tool, it looks just like the wooden stick ones, with metal pointy dotters on each end.
