Shellac Hollywood with dots

For those that follow my little blog, you know that I am really into polish of all kinds but I love gel polish.  Many times when I am doing one design or playing with items on the challenge list, I have on a base and top coat (usually in Gelish, sometimes Shellac).  I keep that same base and top coat on for at least a week and change out the design with regular polish on top using non-acetone polish remover.  Periodically, I like to use a Gelish or Shellac color and then do something creative on top.  I am a huge fan of red.  Love the color Hollywood from Shellac.  I did this a few weeks ago and then topped it with dots.

People at work said it reminded them of I Love Lucy.  It reminded me a lot of a cartoon mushroom top.  Color looks great in the sun.  I wore it like this for a few days and then I decided to add another layer....


I added a coat of Essie Matte About You to the top.  I am not a big "matte" fan but I did kind of like the way it turned out.  I am way happier about the shine in the first photo since I am a glitter girl through and through.
