NOTD: Retro Dots!

Hey Guys! :)

Today I'm posting up my latest try with Nail Art!

I took advice from the very lovely Laura at Lauras All Made Up Beauty Blog and purchased some dotting tools from ebay.

I didn't think dotting tools would be any easier to use than just using the nail polish's own brush....boy was I wrong!

The tools are a dream to work with and they make it so easy to create fun and funky looks!

This was my first try, I used:

*Barry M in Pale Yellow
*Barry M in Cyan Blue
*Collection 2000 base coat
*Collection 2000 Top Coat


  I applied my base coat and let it dry, I then painted half of my nail with a yellow diagonal stripe and used the dotting tool dipped in the blue polish to create a diagonal pattern of dots across the opposite half of my nail.


I was pretty happy with the result!

What do you think? Are you fan of dotting tools? Feel free to link me to any looks that you've created, I'd love to see them! :)

    Glad you got the dotting tools! You seem to have got the hang of them a lot quicker than I did.
