I'm not sure what it is about Thanksgiving that makes me gravitate toward my Sally Hansen limited edition polishes, but last Thanksgiving I rocked a tri-colored mani using the brown polishes from the Sally Hansen Tracy Reese Fall 2010 collection, and this year I was drawn to them again. I guess I just love rich browns and earthtones for Thanksgiving. BUT, this year I wanted to jazz it up a bit and add some sparkle, so I grabbed my new OPI Warm & Fozzie and my Wet n Wild Cougar Attack and decided to do a fun polka dot mani.
Note: you don't need a fancy dotting tool to make polka dots on your nails--check out this post where I show you that a simple bamboo kebab skewer works just fine. You can pick up a bag of 100 for a buck at the dollar store and you only need three for this look, which will set you back just three cents!

I started with a base of two coats of Touch of Mink and then, after that dried, I did my polka dots in Fedora first. I let that dry and then added my polka dots in Warm & Fozzie. After that dried, I did my polka dots in Cougar Attack. When that was dry, I added a layer of Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat and I was good to go!
I actually love this mani. I think it's fun and festive while still keeping to the traditional colors that are the signature of this time of year.
What are you rocking on your nails this week?
