Dotty nails are quite the trend these days, and they’re so easy and fun to do even for a nail n00b like me
Please excuse the grotty condition of my cuticles. They’re in dire need of TLC as you can see.
I do not have nail dotting tools, but I found an alternative way to create the dots. I had plenty of round headpins lying around, which worked perfectly. You can get them very cheaply at craft stores and haberdasheries.
Base shade: OPI in Russian Navy
Dots: OPI in OPI on Collins Ave, Rimmel 60 Seconds in Bonzai and Nubar in Faded Jeans
It was originally supposed to be placement of precise dots. Unfortunately, I didn’t wait long enough to apply the top coat, hence the index finger and thumb had the dots looking rather smudged. At first I was disappointed but after a minute or two, I realised I actually liked it slightly messy.
I had heaps of fun dotting the colours on. You can be as precise as you want, or like me, go nuts with the dotting
