Erica's Nails & More November Challenge - Day 10

So, its the final day of the November challenge :( Its also my last challenge for this year - the build up to Xmas is so busy I'll be painting tons of nails but probably won't have time to do my own!!!

The brief for the last day is to Recreate your Favourite. I toyed with the idea of doing someone else's but didn't feel I had time to do justice to any of the gorgeous designs I was inspired by, so I went back to one of the days at the beginning - polka dots. I LOVE doticures - it doesn't matter how many I do, I'm always happy to do more, so I picked some colours that I wouldn't normally put together and went for it. The base is Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Whirlwind White and the dots are Color Club In the Limelight, Psychedelic Scene and Edie. I loved the look I achieved with the first polka dot post I submitted but wanted something bright and "citrus-ey" to brighten up this cold frosty London day :)

 So, that's it! All done! As I keep the blog mostly for challenge posts, I'll be heading back over to Twitter and Facebook so if you'd like to keep up with what I'm up to then please follow the links and hopefully I'll see you there! Tomorrow I start opening my Ciate advent calendar and there will be a full range of swatches with nail art on the way.

Laters :)
