Dotty French

This design came out of a failed attempt at dry marbling.  I thought that dry marbling would be easy, maybe it was the white I chose.  Anyway, I wanted something colorful and ended up doing dots again. 

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze White on White.  I am really starting to hate this white!  The application is horrible!  This is the white I tried to dry marble with, horrible.  I think this is going into the stamping pile and staying there!



My next step was to add the dots to each finger with a dotting tool.
Here are the colors:
Pinky - Zoya Pippa
Ring - Pure Ice Wild Thing
Middle - Sinful Colors Nail Art Moon Light
Index - OPI Fly
Thumb - OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips






Next, I added 1 coat of NL.



! coat of NYC.



Last, I added a French Tip with each color and 2 coats of NYC.



I had a serious case of shaky hand today.  My right hand has some issues! :)  Overall I like the outcome of this design.  I really like what the French Tip added to the mani!  And it is very colorful!!

  4. The dots alone are very pretty, but you're right - the French added that little extra to it. :)

  8. I love what you've done here, i've got dotting tools and never use them however your mani might just give me the motivation to give it a go. Very clever, love it!

  12. I have a white that is even worse! Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails in Hard to Get. It looks like it's been watered down and takes three or four coats to look even remotely good.
