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!


  1. That is gorgeous, and I love how you alternated the pattern on the two nails!

  2. LOVE the nail art! And haha, we both said the same thing (almost) at the end. No idea why I find that amusing....But the colors and design are gorgeous! :)

  3. I love the pink and gray combo!

  4. Love where you got your inspiration from!! And - if I may say so - I think your mani looks even cooler than the dress!


  5. I love your kate spade inspired nails! Come paint mine!!!!!!!

  6. Good tribute! It looks so celebratory and festive...gotta love dots! :)


Whattaya got to say about that? *waits*
