|1st Day Bottom Coat|
|Scotch Tape Step 3: remove scotch tape from nail|
Within painting each triangle, I did the taping process one nail at a time. This way, there wasn't enough time for the new paint to dry onto the scotch tape and get stuck. Once I lifted the scotch tape off my nail, I placed in onto a paper towel so that I wouldn't make a mess. After every nail was done, I let them dry for a very long time before placing a clear top coat over the finished product.

Hawaiian Pineapple Cilantro home fragrance wax cubes by Better Homes and Gardens is a very tangy fragrance! It smells fresh, fruity, tangy, and tart all at once. I can't totally pick up on the cilantro scent, but I could tell there was something there beyond just your typically pineapple. This is another scent that really lingered the day after I burned it. Yum!

This home fragrance by ScentSationals is so great. By now you know that I love fragrance wax cubes. This fragrance is called Coconut Sun. These packages come with 6 cubes and you an re-use them a few times before the fragrance runs out.
Coconut Sun smells really fruity and tropical. It was fragrant enough for us to really notice it throughout the night and even from other rooms. It almost smelled beachy and clearly smelled like summer. It wasn't just 'coconut' - it had the extra steamy, sweet scent. I think the name Coconut Sun is perfect for this fragrance cube!

I wanted to try painting layered dots onto my nails, but it wound up looking more like regular dots. I did layer some dots, but not in the way I really planned to. Next time, I'll have to try a more specific design- perhaps one that borders one corner of each nail! I think if all the dots were in one area of the nail, it would look cool!
|Bobby pins dipped in nail polish|
I used bobby pins! I simply bent one side of each bobby pin (to avoid making 2 dots at once). Once I bent the bobby pin, I stuck the bent end into my nail polish bottle. Once the pin was covered with nail polish, I just touched the tip onto my nail.
I found that being a bit more liberal with the amount of nail polish resulted in a better dot. I let each color dry before I applied a new color of dots. As you can see, I wasn't too patient in letting them dry and a few of the dots got smudged.
You can see my process of layers per each color here:

Check out this flower bundle! It has a lot of different flower types in it. Although some leaves were drooping, I just cut those off and threw them out. I was still left with great flowers. This bundle was just $3.99 from ShopRite. Which type of flower is your favorite in this bunch? Let me know. :)
