Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend. My Easter weekend consisted of time at my cottage (the weather was amazing!), a Raptors basketball game, organizing an Easter egg hunt for my little cousins, and consuming way too much cheap chocolate (I honestly woke up with a chocolate hangover this morning...time to get my clean eating back on track).
Besides buying and playing with makeup, baking yummy clean eating treats and watching copious amount of trashy reality TV, one of my favourite things to do is to watch, and cheer on my hockey team, the Detroit Redwings. Having been a fan for over 20 years, I have been lucky enough to go to my fair share of Redwings games, and have been known to force my family and friends to wear some fairly embarrassing, Redwings-inspired outfits (see collage above).
This Thursday my sisters, my Dad I will be driving to Detroit to see the Red Wings play the Boston Bruins in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Having already planned our outfits (we will be recycling some of our old 'costumes') and our sign 'Girls Don't Get Flirty With Bruins Who Play Dirty' (rhyming with the word dirty is harder than you would think), I decided I wanted to do something fun and 'festive' with my nails. So, what better than a red and white 'dotticure'?!
To create this look, I, or rather my nail lady, started with two coats of Dior's 'Captain', a beautiful cherry-toned red that is set to release with Dior's new Summer 2014 'Transat Collection'. Next, she used my favourite double-ended dotting tool, essence's 'Duo Stylist Nail Tool' and a thick white nail polish (sorry I didn't get the name) to create a smattering of various sized dots.
While the look is fairly simple (nail art for dummies), I love it and can't wait to show off my nails at the game on Thursday (because the Red Wings will obviously looking into the stands to see who has the best manicure).
What do you think of my Red Wings inspired 'dotticure'? Are you a hockey fan? Who is your favourite team? Be sure to let me know in the comment section below.
