Nautical Teal & Gold Polka Dot Photo-torial


One of my favorite color combinations for Summertime is teal and gold. I recently purchased Essie Naughty Nautical, a creme teal with sparse and micro silver shimmers, and Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Golden Opportunity, a dense shimmer soft gold. Sticking with my short-nail-art trend as of late, I decided to do a photo-torial for this very easy dotticure (aka dotting tool manicure). I have also incorporated my love for translucent nail art (accent nail) because I'm pretty proud of my unstained nails and want a way to show them off while still enjoying my polished looks.

I hope you enjoy my photo-torial, if you try it out, please tag me @BeautyByKrystal on any social media :)
