Polka Dots Galore!! (LOVE)

I LOVE polka dots.  I am just obsessed.  Especially pink polka dots - but I'm happy with polka dots in any shade.  Which is why I was one of the first in line to order Konad's new polka dot plate (finally!!).  Konad plate m79 is loaded with adorable designs - polka dots, clouds, pearls, and roses.

China Glaze Black Diamond with OPI Mod About You

For this design, I started with three coats of China Glaze Black Diamond.  Then I used Konad plate m79 with OPI Mod About You to create the adorable dots :)  I tried using hot pink at first (you can kind of see the hot pink dots on my index finger) but that looked too subtle.  I love how retro 1950's this looks!!

I also tried this plate in two other shades, green and silver.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get over how much this looked like dragon eggs, so I quickly changed it to black and pink.

Dragon Eggs much?
China Glaze Watermelon Rind with Color Club Worth the Risque

For this design, I painted the base with two coats of China Glaze Watermelon Rind (love this one!) and then used Konad plate m79 with Color Club Worth the Risque to make the spots.

More polka dot love?  For Valentine's Day, my sweet Valentine bought me polka dot silverware :)  I absolutely adore each pretty dotted utensil!  Last night for dinner he cooked us Emeril's Very Veggie Lasagna - YUMM!!  He spent HOURS in the kitchen though - tons of chopping, sauteeing, and baking.  But the results were totally worth it!  (Well, I thought so at least - he said it was 'missing something.'  I don't know what it could be missing - there were over 20 ingredients in that dish!).  But we both enjoyed eating Emeril's lasagna with our polka dot forks and knives :)

Have a fun day all!

First I want to appologize for not commenting here for a while, I missed out so many things. I read some of the posts but I have to admit that I was in a hurry and too lazy to comment, but I'm back now :-))))

I LOVE polka dots and this plate is a hit ! I have to get myself one too !
The polka dots silverware is so cool and the lasagna looks yummyyyyyy (except for the mushrooms, I'm a veggy, but I don't eat mushrooms) :-)))

Unknown said...

aww, thank you Tuli!! I love hearing from you - and I TOTALLY understand. I have been a bad commenter too :( which I feel awful about. There is just never enough time in the day! I wish we had a few extra hours each day (of sunlight though, not darkness!).

Glad you love the plate and polka dots! :) I had no idea you were a veggie too! I'd love to hear some of your favorite recipes sometime! Thanks Tuli :)
