Cute Polka Dot Nails

  Happy Wednesday, I guess.  My laptop is now a craptop.  My hard drive went out.  :-(  I had just replaced it last year, too.  I am so thankful I purchased my Ipad when I did!  Got it for a screaming deal too.   My blog is pretty much keeping me from slipping into a sleep filled depression right about now.  We ended up selling the craptop though, so that was a good thing.  There was no way we would have the money to fix it anytime soon, so, may as well get some money from it instead of it being a paper weight, right?

  My inspiration for this mani came from my Pinterest browsing inspiration search.  You know, those days where you have no idea what to do so you float around on the internet until something strikes your fancy?!  I do this A LOT!  My creative juices are pretty blocked after my work days unfortunatly.  It is so stinking cute and simple.  I got a lot of compliments on it and I will be keeping this as a go to design.  I was unable to trace this mani back to its original blog so if you know who's this is, please tell me so I can give proper credit!  That is one of the unfortunate downfalls to Pinterest.  Also another reason why bloggers should watermark their pictures.  We want to give you credit!
