Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lively Lilac

Some of my polish friends wanted to wear lavender polish to remember Caylee Anthony as it was her favorite color. I have a couple of lavenders that I haven't tried, so I decided to use Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lively Lilac. This cream polish has an awesome formula! Its a perfect shade that isn't too bright or too muted. I only used 1 coat...yes...only 1 coat! Lively Lilac also dried relatively quickly with good shine. I'm still trying to get used to the wide, flat brushes on these polishes. They fan out and spread extremely well though. Here's a pic...
 Love, love, love this color! I'm not sure if I told you guys, but I ordered a set of dotting tools from amazon a few weeks ago. They've been here for awhile...I just hadn't gotten around to using them. I decided to play with them this morning.
I was inspired by Wacky Laki's mani found HERE for this look. I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Gunmetal and Hot Magenta for the dots. I think it came out really cute for my first attempt. This took less than 5 mins for me and would be a great way to spice up a 1-2 day old mani. I needed these a few weeks ago for the polka dot mani shown HERE...lol. I see lots of dotting in my future. :) Here's the set I purchased.

What do you think of my first attempt with the dotting tools? Happy polishing (and dotting) dolls!

Thanks BMR! I kinda wish I would've done the pink dots as the primary color, but it still came out cute.
@Courtney...Can you believe this is my first insta-dri?!? I'll definitely be purchasing more of these...especially for quick manis.
