Last night I received a message on Twitter from my friend Ally over at Reach For the Polish. She is a sweet hilarious chica that I have met in my nail polish travels. So she sends me a link telling me to go check out her blog post. I was floored when I read what she had (probably in a drunken stupor, hehe) typed about lil old me. She had dedicated a blog post to me and said some of the nicest things anyone has ever said about me. Here is the post that melted my cold little heart.
I was and still am somewhat shocked at the downright love I have received since I have started this blog, and the amazing women I have met. I couldn't stop thinking about all the lovely things Ally had written, even today while at work. So I decided that I, in turn, owed Ally something to say thank you. Since she resides in New Zealand, I couldn't exactly drop her a bouquet of flowers, so in true nail blogger form, this is what I came up with.
oh thanks super large picture for showing up yet again!
For this mani I did my favorite, and I guess my trademark, dot flowers. The colors I used were Revlon Raven Red, Lime Crime Milky Way, and Revlon Knockout. For those of you interested in recreating these very simple (I swear) flowers, there is a tutorial tab on my blogs home page. They honestly are very easy to do with a dotting tool, bobby pin or something with a rounded end that you could dot with. The combinations are endless color wise. I think I have done this mani or something very similar about 100 times, but each time it is so unique due to my different color choices. The flowers I did this time were done with my largest dotter. If you want a more delicate look, you can simply use a smaller dotter and spread the flowers out a little more.
Please go check out Ally's blog, she is absolutely hilarious and so kind hearted. She's obviously a bad judge of character but we can let that slide can't we? :)
This one is for you Ally Cat....Flowers for a very sweet girl that I am proud to call my friend!!
Happy Polishing Loves!!
