Attitude Adjust-Mint Vintage Swimming Pool

Hi everyone! This manicure reminded me of vintage swimming pools, and those fun mint green patterns and colors of the 1950s and 1960s. I used a new polish I got from Lynnderella called Attitude Adjust-Mint from her Funny Money collection. I believe that Llarowe will begin selling Lynnderella polishes in December, so check there if you are interested in purchasing Lynnderella's gorgeous glitter polishes.

I added some little dots to a few accent nails to give this design a retro feel and reinforce the pool/bubble idea. 

This photo is what I thought of when I finished this manicure. Image from: http://www.bombago.com/101805/~max0073.jpg

Here's the mani before I added the dots. It is really cute with just two coats of the base polish and one coat of the glitter polish. 

Close up of the glittery goodness! There are different colors and shapes of hexagon glitter, and also a really lovely micro greenish glitter. So interesting!

Here is my right hand. Again, I just did the dot design on two accent nails. I used two different sizes of dotting tools to get the different sized dots. 

Both hands together.

Polishes used in this manicure: Revlon Minted (base polish with two coats), Lynnderella Attitude Adjust-Mint (one coat), and for the dots: Borghese Menta and Sinful Colors Snow Me White. I also used Essie All In One Basecoat, Relvon Quick Dry Top Coat, and Seche Vite topcoat.

This would be a fun holiday manicure with reds or darker greens. A creme color base, topped with a coat of matching glitter, and then a few contrasting dots on accent nails. If you try it, please post a link here, I would love to see it!

  7. We may be having the best intentions in our heart but we could be a nag. Nagging can become the number one reason for ruining relationships. Nagging does not give breathing space to the other person in a relationship. No way can one win hearts through nagging, only encouraging words win hearts. attitude status

  20. Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time. Pool Fencing Gold Coast

  26. When you're thinking of installing a swimming pool, the first thing most people are concerned about is the cost. Truthfully, installing a swimming pool can be as expensive or as budget-friendly as you'd like, depending on what kind of pool you'd like and how many features you want installed. But there is more to take into consideration than just the initial cost of having the pool installed; and it can be difficult to tell just how much exactly a swimming pool will cost you in the end. When it's time to shop around for one though, here's a swimming pool pricing guide you can use as a reference. in-ground pool builder
