Summer Dress

I took off my polish 3 times last night! Nothing looked good, all was lost. Then I decided to try drawing something again and it instantly turned into a summer dress version of my "Little Black Dress" mani I did the first week of June.

Here is my left hand indoors. I did this hand first, I knew I was going to put the silver there for the necklace so I gave this dress spaghetti straps. Once I got the bullion on I put random polka dots with my dotting tool (I finally got one!). I wasn't too thrilled about the style of the dress for some reason.

My right hand outdoors. I knew I had to change the dress so I tried to make a bow to tie it at the neck. Winner! Now it looks very summery.

I used Finger Paints Bikini Bottom (after seeing this name when I was all done I slapped my forehead) and LA Colors Nail Art Polish for the dots.


  1. this is soooo cuteeee
    very creative i love it

  2. OMG Kae!!! fAB!!
    You know what else it looks like? The second pic, without the necklace totally looks like one peice swimsuits from the 50's!! To freakin cute sister!

  3. i love how cute your idea is of the balls for a necklace, but I think i like it better without. Like Brooke said:50s swimsuit! amazing!

  4. That is so cute! You have some serious design/painting talent! This mani makes me happy and it's so summery :)

  5. OMG! how cute! You are very creative and skilled!

  6. wow! you are so creative! how long does it usually take for you to do your nails? I'm terrible at it!

  7. Nailz-In-Aus:
    Thank you! :)

    Hi! Now that you mention it, yes it does look like an oldie one-piece! I like that one better!

    Lacquer Laine:
    Yah I totally agree, the beads made it more fancy, not summery. Thanks :)

    Thank you.

    Thank you! I can picture the white hat, lots of grass and an icy cold glass of lemonade...

    Thank you :D

    Thanks, it depends on the type of nail art. If it's simple like dots and lines maybe 30 mins. If it involves a lot of detailed drawing like my pet doggies or Hello Kitty mani's I did 1 or 2 hours =x (with a break or two in there).
    Lately I've been really lazy and just painting no art!

  8. oh my gosh! that is adorable! wish I could do that, =]

  9. wow, this is so adorable.. I am going to try this one!!!!

  10. Wow! I am blown away by your skill. If I can manage a straight line with my nail art brush I'm happy.

  11. You are so good. There is no need for you to use konad. The 50's style bathing suit is amazing. The yellow looks nice on you too! (I can't pull off yellow).

  12. I don't like you so much anymore Kae! :( Just joking! You are so talented, I love your polishes and I am seriously addicted to your blog! <3

  15. That's sooo pretty! You are truly talented, what an idea to do a dress on your fingernails.

  16. It's so cute~! i'd never thought it nails can be so wonderful.. :)

  17. I love this summery adorable manicure! I love the halter version. Did you pain this on bare nails? You're such a great artist!

  18. Oh wawwww !! You're very talented Kae !

  19. Wow I've never seen a mani like this :D so original!

  20. Stephanie Zheng:
    You can! A little practice with a brush goes a long way. Thanks :)

    The Princess:
    Thank you.

    Thank you, can't wait to see it!

    Thanks. I'm very sloppy and shaky oftentimes!

    Thank you! I fell in love with Konading tho lol.

    Haha, fine then! Thank you! (^_^)/

    Hi Joyce:
    Yessss! It was my favorite so it kind of turned into a version of the black dress. Thank you :)

    Thank you!

    Thank you. :D

    Thank you! (I am sounding like a broken record by now, right?)

    Thanks, me too I like that one better. I forgot to mention this but I did a coat of Seche ridgefiller as a base. ♥

    Thank you so much! ☺

    Me either (well I did my first dress last month :D)! Thank you.

  21. I love both of the designs - you are sooo amazingly creative and talented - major clapping your way!

  22. WOW! You really made a nice dress! It doesn't look messy or anything. Like a professional! Well, who says your not? :D

  23. Darling..really. & i love the yellow. I was just @ Sally trying to find a good creamy yellow....but they were out! ( i still have never used yellow on my nails...yet!)
    very very cute mani!

  24. Hi Alexlyndra,
    Funny thing is my primary hand looked better than the other! I guess I did get to practice 5 dresses first tho :D
    Thank you!

    Oh just to note, that yellow I used has a very light shimmer to it so it's not pure yellow creme. I like the shimmer tho!
    Thank you :)

  25. Whoooo! You are one talented lady. So delicate and pretty.

  26. You are the QUEEN OF NAILS!!! I'm so glad you commented :P
