Dots on Dune

Hey gals! Today we have my semi first nude polish, Sally Hansen Dune (this is part of their Smooth and Perfect line).  I also did some nail art but I will save that for last.
Application wise, it could have been better. This is 4 coats, no top coat. Formula was the tiniest bit on the runny side. The brush was a tad wider than normal.  But overall, it worked out. I took the Dune pics in my makeshift light box, the others in the sun. Onto the pics!!

 Can you see the micro shimmer? I wish I had taken some bottle shots in the sun.

 Dune is a neutral nice with the tiniest bit of gold micro shimmer... Definitely not a flat creme.

Now to the nail art! Some simple dots with the dotting tool.

I added one coat of my first franken, (unnamed) a sheer sparkly golden based top coat.

The franken topcoat really makes the polish make my skin tone a little bit more. And it adds some fun shimmer! (what micro shimmer should really look like ;)

Anyway, that is my manicure for the next few days. 
**side note**
*because of how time plays out, I will be posting once a week, or whenever I change my manicure. I do not swatch colors much, but take pictures as I do the manicure that I wear for a few days.

here is a BONUS pic of part of the reason I don't  have as much free time lately.

oh and finally, I might have to start planning a 1,000 page views giveaway!! Stay Tuned!
