The blue is 17 in Heart Beat, which I picked up for 50p in the Boots clearance recently, so it was something of a bargain! I’m still yet to work out why a pale blue is called heart beat though, as a blue heart normally means no oxygen, so i’s not beating …aaand I’ll leave it there. Maybe they pick the names out of a hat.
I then did a row of overlapping white dots in OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, followed by a line of black dots in Nails Inc New York Noir. Finally, in the centre of each black dot I added a smaller dot of Heart Beat.

I’m also something of a fan of polka dots, and there are loooads more designs here.
There’s SO much going on in this mani! I created it by
I like this design because putting the polka dots over the subtly glittery Fairy Dust gave the effect that they were floating
It’s a bit past the season for full on glitter, so I’ve gone for something a bit more subtle for today’s Theme Buffet, which is all about sparkle.
I was inspired by the Hubble Space Telescope, and decided to do a galaxy mani using the colours from this photo, which is a 2010 image of the Carina Nebula.
So, the theme for this week’s FingerFood’s Theme Buffet is weather! Exciting stuff – and something we certainly seem to have had enough of recently!
England is known for having ‘four seasons in one day’, so I knew that I wanted to have lots of different types of weather in this nail design. To start, I used two coats of 17 in Heart Beat, which is a pale blue. For the index and little fingers, I then added a coat of Barry M confetti in Bubblegum, which I think looks a bit like rain. The clouds on my middle finger and thumb were created using OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and a small nail art brush. Finally, for the sun I used Barry M in Lemon Ice Cream.
