I couldn't really choose how I wanted to do my nails, so I ended up starting with two coats of "a lovely secret" by Essence. It looked really pretty, and part of me wanted to leave it alone, but then I decided to spice it up with some "LIME UP!" (also by Essence) dots. Ever since I bought those dotting tools last weekend, I can't get enough. :D Plus, I need the dotting practice.
