In case you don't know, I'm a total kate spade fangirl. I have far too many bags, accessories, and even a few pieces of clothing and you can bet your bottom dollar that I stalk the sale section like a fiend. Haha! But recently, I've been obsessed with a new pattern of theirs so I decided to do a little tribute becausewellI can't afford to actually buy anything with the pattern. Haha!! I posted a pic on my Instagram account but I thought I'd share it for the nail files, too, because I love it so much! 

What I used:

The mani:

The dots are overlapped in the pattern, so that's what I did with my feature nails. It took longer because I had to alternate colours instead of doing one colour, letting it dry, and then adding another, but it was the only way to get the legit look. I used a larger dotting tool for the bottom (and top) and then a smaller one to fade out the dots. Wohoo for gorgeous dresses that inspire pretty manis! Haha!

Can't wait to see what you're all rocking this week!
