For a long time I’ve wanted to try out this technique, but it seemed very daunting. I think I need some practice, but it was very fun and I can’t wait to try it out again.

I wasn’t totally happy with them, but the colors did show up better in person. My poor camera was so confused by all the colors and sparkles. :)

ORLY in White Tips, AC-NED-82, AC-NED-81, L’Oreal Bijou Gems in B. Outrageous, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lightening, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Snappy Sorbet, AC-NED-90, Sally Hansen HD in Wavelength, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Mint Sprint, ORLY in Gumdrop, AC-NED-94, OPI in Not Like The Movies.

I was inspired by this tutorial which I found through this amazing tumblr. (Which, I was introduced to by my BF, might as well continue the credit-where-credit-is-due train of thought.)

I chose a lighter base mostly because I am so in love with my new OPI in Not Like The Movies. :) Seriously, such a great color, neutral but with a bit of understated rock star glam.

This is the result of my first set of dotting tools, I was really excited to try them out. :) My dad said he preferred my more sedate toe design haha

(More than a week later looking alright even though I skipped the topcoat. I just love how much longer a pedi lasts than a mani.)
