WTF Dots?

I should never do dots.  I’m really terrible at them.  But hey, I went to the effort so why not wear them for a day anyway?

My camera cannot pick up neon.  I tried natural light and color correction, then I tried flash.  The pink just never gets hot enough.  So pretend the pink in the photos below are eye-searingly pink.

Also, I finally wore my Sinful Colors’ Cinderella.  I love a good contrast shimmer, and Cinderella has a blue base and a pink shimmer.  I decided to do an accent nail in China Glaze’s Fast Track, which is a nice tan with a gold shimmer.  It’s kind of a sea and sand kind of thing, I guess.

Cinderella‘s formula leaves much to be desired.  It took 3 coats, and ended up thicker than I wanted, which is apparent around the cuticles.  Also, my camera didn’t want to pick up the pink here, either.  Maybe my camera hates pink.
