NOTD - Red and White Polka Dots

As it says on the tin really...

2 coats of Miss Sporty Red Tango dotted with 17 Nail Xtras French Tip Whitener. On the accent index fingers (I meant to do the rings as usual but was merrily painting away and forgot...) I did 3 coats of Collection 2000 French White (because the brush on the 17 Nail Xtras is slanted for doing tips so no good for painting a whole nail, but is whiter so better for the dots) and then dotted with the Red Tango. A slightly smeary coat of Seche on top. Apologies for the rubbish clean up. Must try harder.

It didn't turn out exactly as I hoped (does it ever?) I think the dotting tool I used was slightly too large. Or I put the dots too close together.

My favourite nail, and the first one I did (left little finger). I wish they all came out like this.

Definitely much easier now I have the dotting tools. They were 99p from ebeast with free P & P even although they came all the way from Hong Kong, and they only took 8 days to arrive. Well worth it!

I just want to say hi to all my new followers! The number of you seems to have jumped up over the last few days and I'm now at 81! Can't quite believe that 81 people want to read me rattling on about my nails really, so thank you! I am going to organise a small giveaway if I reach 100 I think (depending on how many pennies are in my piggy bank) so I'll get my thinking cap on for what to include...

  1. Dots are great anyway but what makes this so good is the accent nail with the reverse colours. Very clever.

  3. I love polka dot nails :-) x

  4. I love polka dot nails, I love contrasting colours and I love it when there is an accent nail!
