How to: Go dotty nail tutorial!

As I mentioned in my last post, I bought some dotting tools from ebay and wanted to experiment. This one didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped but was really fun to do.

I used a variety of pinks and purples by Barry M.

Start with a base coat of your choice.

Set up your blobs. Make sure you work fast! I put blobs of each colour on a piece of scrap paper so I could work easily. These blobs could have done with being twice the size to fill both hand's worth of nails. It started to go tacky after a while so I think bigger blobs would be better.

Start with dotting your first colour on each nail randomly.

Then keep adding different colours...

Until you get something like this...

I ended with putting dots of my original base colour as the last layer of dots. This seemed to tie in any gaps I may have not covered with the other colours.


Have fun, guys!
