Teal Tuesday - Copycats - and a surprise giveaway!

Today's Teal Tuesdays mani is similar to yesterday's MSMD mani in that its another copycat! This time, however, I'm copying a specific mani I saw on NailsLikeLace's blog recently - interconnected dots. She's even been so kind as to provide a very helpful video tutorial! I'm not sure if I've seen it anywhere else but if you have, please let me know so I can share. :)

I used a base color of Misa The Grass Is Greener On My Side and the darker color you see is China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic, another one of my most favorite teals. I used my largest dotting tool to create the interconnected dots along the line where the colors meet and to create the remaining dots. I like this nail art because it is done all free hand and dotting over the line between the two polishes allows you some freedom in case you mess up a little.

This mani reminds me of lava lamps and all the globby blobs floating around. What do you see? Amber uses neon in her design and I think it looks great, radioactive even! Its seriously bright.

Look! I even took some pictures outside, using natural sunlight. Have I told you how neat I think this looks? Even the boyfriend gave it a heads up!

How about that Giveaway!? Ok, here's the deal: I recently made an order to Transdesign to stock up on some more Sations, some killer Misas, and some older China Glaze - including most of the 2008 Rodeo Diva Collection. Rodeo Diva has some serious beauties but I mistakenly ordered a bottle of Rodeo Fanatic, the color I used for this mani, and which I already have a bottle of. D'OH! Does this mean I have a problem, since I ordered a bottle I already owned? Did I forget? Who knows what I was thinking... what I know now, is that you guys are going to benefit! Rather than deal with customer service and shipping hassles, I'm just going to give my new bottle of Rodeo Fanatic away!

This giveaway lasts just a week, until next Teal Tuesday, when I'll announce the winner and is open to US residents only. Unfortunately I just don't have a clue how to ship oversees. Good luck, everyone!
