Pretty Nails with Dots and a Bow!

This week, I decided to get busy with a few Sheswai Lacquers and some nail art supplies from Nail Art Society!  I came up with a pretty polka dot manicure with a bow on top:minnie mouse nails

I applied two coats of Ladylike from Sheswai, then top coat.  I used my dotting tool to make polka dots with For Real from Sheswai.  Loved it!  Sheswai Lacquers provide a flawless finish, so easy to apply.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my post.

Since most everything is better with a bow on top, I added a dab of nail glue and attached a 3-D bow to one of my nails.  Voila!3D nail art, dot mani sheswai ladylike swatches

The finished look had my daughter saying I had “Minnie Mouse nails”, so cute :).  I did her nails to look just like mine, bow and all!  Her little bow didn’t last very long but my bow stayed on for about 48 hours, even through all the dish washing, showers, etc.  Kinda cool!  Find Ladylike and For Real at, $16 each

What do you think of my latest manicure?  I’d love to know about your latest!

      Aww thanks Kath! I just wish I could make my right hand look as decent as the left. It seems I cannot do ANYTHING with my left hand including draw dots!

    Pretty polishes and I love the bow. I want to start playing with 3d nail art. My nails are so curvy though 🙂

      Thank you! I was SURE that bow would fall right off but it stayed on for more than a day doing all my regular routine stuff. I was impressed for sure!

      Thanks, it has been fun! Unfortunately, almost all my little doo-dads fell off right away :(. I need to perfect my application skills on those.

      Thanks, Margo! I was really skeptical that the bow would stay on through daily life but I was proved wrong. I would for sure do this look again :).
