Nail Art 2017 #1

I was inspired to create my mani after seeing a tutorial on Facebook. It looked fairly easy and I just loved the finished look. A dotticure, but not just any dotticure, the dots being multi-toned. I'll explain...


Once I decided I wanted warm colours on my nails, I needed to begin with a dark base colour. For this I chose Sally Hansen Diamond Strength polish in Save the Date. For the dots I began with a combination of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish in White On, Models Prefer Nail Color in Trendy and Ulta3 Nail Color in Honolulu. With the smaller end of my chosen dotting tool I slightly mixed the polishes so that the individual colours were still obvious. I then proceeded to place dots on my nails with the swirled polish using the larger end of the dotting tool.




I definitely want to try some different colours using this technique!
