Sparkly Dots :)

Hey Everyone!! It is actually sunny out right now. I doubt it will last though. I think it has rained everyday for at least a week straight. I believe it might be a couple of days longer than a week. It was raining this morning when I came to work. I love rain but when I went to the drive thru for some coffee this morning the water was up to the bottom of my car. Any higher and it would have been coming in the doors. Not cute.

Today I have a review of a pair of polish earrings I bought from the lovely Denisa from Sparkly Dots :) she has a blog and an etsy store where you can see her gorgeous creations. When I first saw her earrings I knew I wanted a pair but I used them as a reward for my weight loss program. Let me just say it drove me crazy waiting to get the goal so I could order these earrings! They were the perfect reward and I love them!

The packaging is adorable. They arrived in this little bag with the cutest card attached. I didn't take a picture of the back but it says Thank You. I was very impressed with the details in packaging.

Inside the pouch is this cute little bundle. Those dots are so freakin cute and go perfectly with her cards and name. I thought that was the cutest touch and really made the packaging stand out.

I wasn't really sure how my earrings were going to be fit inside that cute little bundle but sure enough when I unraveled it there they were.

I worked with Denisa on the color scheme for these earrings. I had told her I wanted blue and green and she came back with a few ideas. I really liked the metallic green and the glittery blue and she made a gorgeous earring for me containing both those specific colors. I must say though, these earrings, even MORE gorgeous in person than they are in pictures. I couldn't not be happier with the way they came out.

Ok, my macro is kinda lame but here is a close up blurry picture of one. I can't even make good dots on my nails so I have NO IDEA how she can make the most perfect dots on these little earrings. I am AMAZED!

Please excuse my shiny white ear but I wanted to show you what they looked like on an ear. I always have trouble determining size of things online so I thought this would help show the size. I am used to wearing long dangling earrings so I was a little concerned these would be too short and wouldn't look right but they are perfect. They dangle just the right amount and I love the way they hang. I am always answering calls at work and it is the perfect length that they do not get in the way of the phone.

I am already planning on ordering another pair that is how much I love these earrings. The glass is a dome shape on these which makes the pattern stand out and give it a magnified look. The finding seems pretty sturdy and durable and I think it is the perfect size. I met Denisa in the nail polish community and she is a sweetheart with amazing dotting skills. She has some new designs coming out soon as well as several listings on her site. Sparkly Dots does ship from Ireland but I got my order fairly quickly.

That's all for now :)
