Sation, Oh My Oceania

Another Sation for you! Its a beautiful light sea green…yes that is my best description. Also has a VERY subtle sheer blue shimmer.

Sation, Oh My Oceania

Sation Oh My Oceania is in 3 coats no top coat. The formula is good, a little runny and dries a little slow. As you can see I stuck my fingers in my hair for a second and was too lazy to start over. Okay so a tip for those of you out there who have runny polishes that pool up on the side edge of the nail and finger- watch robinmosesnailart- seriously she does this thing where she puts her finger on the edge of it and lifts it off(like rolling your finger away). Definitely helps with the evenness and drying time. If its not a big pool of polish it dries faster. Its a method I use a lot with runny polishes and makes life easier lol.

D.I.Y.- Dotting Tool!♥

As promised here’s the link on how to make your very own nail dotting tools! *****REMINDER****** This is NOT my own video!  I do not know cutepolish personally but I do love her tutorials and received permission to share this on my blog. I’m constantly trying to learn new things from lots of different places such as youtube, magazines, internet etc. Yes, I could have made my own video, but I felt like this is where I learned this neat trick so, what better way to show you all where I learned it from then from the original herself. 🙂 Enjoy!

In addition to all that information, if you want an even bigger dot you could use  a nut or bolt cover (google cap nut  to get the idea) from your local hardware store. The cap nuts are probably the best considering that its just a nut with a round cover on it and it has an opening so you can put it on the end of a pencil or pen. As for using it, it works the same way as a smaller dotting end, just make sure that there’s enough polish to dip it in to get a bigger dot. 😉

Now as forvmyself, I do have “official” dotting tools that I got on eBay. My experience on eBay has taught me that seller’s out of the US have it way cheaper then seller’s in the states do ( not always though!) so if you have the patience to wait longer then you can get a nice set of dotting tools ( & probably just like the same one’s I have) for a few dollars cheaper.

I think around the time I bought mine I wasn’t too keen on waiting and I got it from someone in the US for what I would consider a reasonable price (something like $5.99 and probably free shipping) and it seemed like right immediately after I purchased the set, cutepolish put up this video! I’ll admit I was somewhat devastated about all this! Like a sick, gut wrenching feeling. In my mind all I could think was “Omigosh, I could have bought at least 3 more polishes with that money instead!!!” 😄
