Summer Challenge: Day 3 - Summer Dotting

I am calling this design my Butter Dots, because every polish I used is a butter LONDON polish.  I do come up with some pretty cheesy names for my designs! :)
Dotting is one of my go to designs when I can't think of anything else to do and is one that I really enjoy.  As with all my designs I didn't want to do something expected.  I like to present new ideas so that others can see a different way of doing things. Granted this design isn't that special but it is somewhat different.  I have seen similar designs on other blogs, so I didn't invent it. :)

I started with BL Cream Tea.  Yes, this is one of my favorite whites.  I love the formula and how it looks on my nails.  It's not the best or easiest white, but it is pretty.  This is 4 coats, I had some streaks.


Second, I added my largest dots using BL Blagger, an awesome blue!


Third, next size using BL Bossy Boots, such a pretty green.  I really need to use this on its own.


Fourth, smaller dots using BL Cheeky Chops, a nice but streaky yellow.


Fifth, last set of dots using BL Alcopop.


Topped off the design with 2 coats of NYC





The design kind of reminds me of a beach towel. 
So, what do you think? Are my dots summer-y enough?
