Week 4 Challenges

The Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge this week is polka dots.
I am in a pink mood for some reason. I probably won't be in this mood for Valentine's Day, but we shall see.

So I got out the colors I wanted to use. Then my boys decided they wanted to help mommy out. I let them each do a hand. I told them I needed polka dots or plaid. Here is the result:

 This one is my 9 yr old. Well he will be 9 in a month. He loves to draw and is naturally creative so I thought he would be good at this. He tried stripes I think. He did a bit of a spackle technique.
 This is my 5 yr old. He just loves spending time with me and  always watches me do my nails. He loves to help make frankens. He is a good shaker.
He thought he was doing some great art here and he was surprisingly good with the striper brush.
I had to wear my nails like that a whole 24 hours. I didn't want to take it off too soon and upset the boys.
I got several compliments too.

Now on to my polka dots. I used Revlon Cupid as a base color. Then OPI Meep Meep Meep with a large dotting tool and a white art paint for the other dots.




Now for my week 4 mani for the year challenge. I love Burberry plaid but it seemed like everyone was doing it so I just used my same colors to make this plaid.





 Even did my right hand! I suck at stripes. Oh well, not too bad overall.

Don't forget to enter my first giveaway for some scented polishes and toe separators.

Here is a list of other girls doing the 52 week challenge:
