Hey There Polished People!
When I was first starting out doing my nails all the time, the first type of nail art I attempted was some dotty nails with taped tips. They were watermelons and they were atrocious. Wanna see them? Try not to barf, I dare you. You can click here to see the watermelons- my first nail art ever. Uff da that’s a throwback that should never happen. Anyway, doing those first nails taught me that (even though the execution of them wasn’t that great, to put it nicely) you can do pretty intricate nail art without any special tools! I think I used a toothpick for the dotty seeds. I have a dotting tool now that I bought for a couple of dollars along with some polish in a LA Girls kit, but if you don’t have one you can just use a toothpick, a pin, an unbent bobby pin, anything pointy. Dots are fun and cute and there are so many creative things that you can do with them. If you wanna see some really awesome dotticures, check out a different Nicole’s blog Young Wild and Polished. You can find her in my new blogroll or click here. She is the queen of dots and I think Alaina is even doing a manicure inspired by her today. The nails I’m going to show you today are a design that I’ve seen a lot but have never tried. I hope you enjoy seeing my version!
Interlocking Dots Nails
The colors I used for these nails are Sation Rock A Guy Blue and Orly Angel Eyes. (Don’t mind the water droplets, it was raining a little.) You can find a tutorial of how to do these nails here on Nail Polish Wars. I don’t really see the point in doing another tutorial when I followed someone else’s step by step, but if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. I love answering questions and doing tutorials when people want to see them. 🙂
What is your favorite way to use dots? I would love to do more, so any suggestions are appreciated! 🙂 Don’t forget to check out everyone else’s dotticures but clicking the button below and let me know what you think about mine! 🙂 As always, thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!! 😀
