Golden Oldie Thursday - Dots


Hi all!

For today's GOT mani we have to do dots! I have wanted to try this tutorial by Chalkboard Nails for a while now. I have actually pinned two by Chalkboard Nails here and here, and another inspired by the same tutorial as well in my Dotting pinterest board. Three different mani's done with the same design... guess I really like it *winks*.


Polishes I used:
  • Miss Sporty - black
  • Etos - Effect nails - 004
  • Etos - Effect nails - 001
I started with a base of my very old Miss Sporty black polish, I needed three coats (which is why this polish is mostly unused).



Next I added an assortment of dots in pink and green. Since the pink was on the sheer side, I had to double dot to make the colour vibrant over the black. Looking back I could have added some smaller dots lower down in between the large ones, but I still like how this turned out anyway.




Dots are simple and yet so versatile! Must do more dots *nods*.

Check out the other dotticures as well!
