NOTD: Nude & Neon Polka Dots

Hello, Beautiful!

Sorry for a lack of nail related posts; I honestly haven't had the time to do my nails. I went almost an entire month without changing my polish - which is super unusual for me. I also shortened my nails super, super short because we have been remodeling our son's bedroom, and I just didn't want to even bother trying to keep them from breaking. They'll grow again, but for now they're short little stubs. Today I finally took some time to do my nails, and for some reason I was inspired by the Bobbi Brown Neons & Nudes makeup collection. I decided to go with simple polka dots, using a dotting tool.

To re-create this NOTD:

  • 1 coat of CND Stickey Base Coat
  • 2 coats of Zoya polish in Shay
  • Using a dotting tool, apply Color Club polish in Almost Famous to all fingers except ring/accent finger
  • Using a dotting tool, apply American Apparel Polish in Neon Red to ring/accent finger
  • 1 coat of Seche Vite to finish off

Now let me know what you think...
What do you think of combining nude and neon shades? Discuss in the comments below.


  1. I absolutely LOVE this look!! It's a great way to make neons accessible and very wearable for those who may be intimidated by them :) Nicely done!

  2. I love this. It's like the perfect combo of neutral and brights!

  3. This is super cute!! I love the combination!

    When you say the same polish for a month, do you mean you reapplied?

  4. @ MariJo: No, I didn't even have time to re-apply. I did my nails the day before my surgery (January 10th) and didn't re-do them until February 9th (when I applied the Sally Hansen Valentine's Day Salon Effects). I had on Claire's polish in Glitter Top Coat (the silver scattered holo polish). I used the Knockout Nails clear top coat to seal it all in. It was worn after a month, but still on my nails! I was just so, so busy (and still am), so this NOTD will likely be on my nails until the weekend (at least). I can't believe I went a month without doing my nails, especially when I usually do them every day!

  5. Cute, cute, cute! I'll have to try this out myself.

  6. easy to do yet so cute!!!

  7. So fun but I prefer the orangy dots because they don't look so neon but otherwise it's too cute
