Good Morning Polished People!
EDIT: I just joined this post up with lots of other ladies’ posts for the Geometry Polish Days blog event. This is my first time so I hope all the links work properly!! Carry on…
While I was on vacation, I was at a Fred Meyer in Idaho grabbing some groceries for the cabin, and “accidentally” perusing the polishes when I saw that some of the drugstore brands like Essence and LA Girls have some new nail art materials out there. There are a few stamping plates with the stamper and scraper included, they have lots of top coats from crackle to chunky glitter, and then they have the thing I was most excited for… a dotting tool!! I got a LA Girls double ended dotting tool and three mini polishes for $4.99 and that was the regular price so when it goes on sale it will be even cheaper!! The dotting tool is perfect, the polishes were cute colors (orange, pink and green)… it’s the best deal ever!! I know you can buy like 4-5 dotting tools online for like 8-10 bucks, but how convenient is it to just run to Freddy’s (for those of you with Fred Meyers’) and grab a dotting tool? I love it!! I totally recommend this kit. Stay tuned one of these days for a review of Essence’s chunky glitter topper- Mr and Mrs Glitter. Till then let’s see today’s nails, shall we?
Grey and Neon Dot Nails
How To Get These Nails:
- Base coat.
- Paint your nails with ChG Elephant Walk (2-3 coats).
- Apply a coat of Seche Vite and allow to dry thoroughly.
- Use the small end of the LA Girls Dotting Tool and apply dots in the orange, green and pink unnamed polish that comes with the kit in any design you choose. I picked a bit of a chevron design.
- Allow the dots to dry a little, then apply a final coat of Seche Vite.
- Show your friends!!
I’m so happy I finally got a dotting tool. Sure you can use a pin, or a toothpick, or the pointy end of a cuticle pusher… I’ve used all those, but nothing is quite as uniform or easy to use as an actual dotting tool. You’ll see plenty of dotticures in the future from me, including but not limited to during the 31 day challenge I’m participating in with a few other bloggers. We start the 10th of this month.
