Lime Crime: Parfait Day & Crema de Limon (and celebrating International Polka Dot Day!)

Hi again! I hope you're not getting too overloaded as the Christmas holiday season draws ever closer. 

Today's Lime Crime manicure features two more yummy looking shades from their Les Desserts d'Antoinette collection.  Parfait Day is a perfect cotton candy pink and Crema de Limon reminds me of lemon sherbet.  I'd always planned to wear these two shades together and then I received a fun invitation I couldn't refuse from new online nail blog So Nailicious to participate in International Polka Dot day.  The idea is to commemorate this cheerful design by wearing a polka dot mani and sharing it via Instagram or Twitter.  Yes, I've tweeted this simply cheerful mani today :)

Application was a creamy dream with both of these polishes and I got smooth base colour coverage in two coats, before adding my polka dots in the reverse colours, then finishing with a top coat to smooth over the surface.

All pictures were taken in natural shaded daylight:



To finish here's a picture of some nail wheel swatches to show you the individual shades before and after being polka dotted!

Happy Polka Dot Day! 

Vita :)
