This is a variation on the pink "spots and polka dots, easy nail art!" post. For a more in-depth step-by-step or just to see another way to wear dots, click here.
|L-R Make-up revolution "Cool Days", Barry M "Blue Moon" and "Peach Melba" nail polishes|
Start with your colours, I chose mint green, peachy orange and bubblegum blue. These colours together remind me of summer, sunshine, seaside trips, milkshakes and ice-cream! Mix them up a little. Don't alternate or set a pattern- try to make them look casual like you just reached into your box of polishes and. . .oh! look what happened! It feels more modern.
|Left hand and right hand, the colours are all mixed up.|
When you've got your base colours done (I let mine dry for a full day, pastels can need up to 4 coats and take an age to dry!) grab darker shades of the same hues and a white. If you don't have the exact colour - mix it yourself! I didn't have a green so I blobbed out some yellow, added a touch of blue and mixed - perfect. Use your kirby grip (bobbypin), dotting tool or toothpick and have fun!
I kept the dots more spread out this time and I like the result. I also made my dots ever so slightly bigger using the end of my kirby grip (bobbypin). If you want small pin-dots use a toothpick.
Don't forget to seal it with a topcoat to make it shine and keep it looking great. Of course you could change this up with any colours you like, pink, or lavender would look so girly and of course yellow, as the best colour in the whole world, would be the best ;-)
Ciao for now
