Dot Dot Dot

23 Jul

It’s easy as 1, 2, 3! Seriously, this is one of the easiest things to do. You don’t need a fancy “dotting tool” or anything, you can use a toothpick or the end of a paint brush. Have fun with it!

This design was inspired by the converse shoes of a girl on the skytrain. They were hightops that were folded down to show off the offsetting polka dot pattern.

For the big blue dots I used the back end of the paint brush and for the little white dots I used the dotting tool.

Canada Day inspired nails. It’s the perfect shade of red, very flattering on many different skin types. The red is Lambada by Gosh.

I am usually not the greatest at picking or pairing colours, but this one I really liked! It helps that I love this Mint Sorbet colour by Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear, which is still one of my favourite brands because of the ease of applications, how long it lasts, and it’s affordable price. For more on my views of different brands, take a look at my past post, Brands; I will write an updated post to include other brands that I have tried out since.

Stylish Poka Dots

8 Sep

I am very proud of this design I came up with. I think it looks great, maybe my new favourite design.

It was super easy. The longest part was waiting for the 2 coats to completely dry. The dots were fast and easy because I used a dotting tool. You can use a toothpick, the end of a paint brush, or basically anything that is pointed.

Polishes used: Blanc (Essie), Black is Black (Salon Expert), Gunmetal (Xtreme), Cheeky Chops (Butter), Top Coat and Base Coat of course.

I would suggest holding off on the Top Coat for as long as you can, a few hours perhaps. I put my Top Coat on the next day and it still streaked a couple of my lines a tiny bit on a couple of nails.

Play around with colours, you can do each nail a different combination of colours. I was going to do black base colour with white and yellow lines, I would probably like that better, but I was planning on wearing a dark outfit.
