I used a bobby pin to do these. If you can’t see because of the crappy quality of my Blackberry camera, it’s just dots striping diagonally across my nail. The bottom color is Zoya Valentina, then Zoya Happi, then Wet n Wild Wild Shine white (I don’t know the actual name). These are super easy as long as you have a lot of patience :)
I hope you enjoy! If you try these, let me see!
Thank you for helping me get over my fear of nail art! I started out with a simple design, but now I’m eager to try new things with this. (I didn’t have a toothpick so I used the end of knitting needle.)
In case you were wondering I used two different brands of polish.
1. Chanel 531 Peridot (Gold)
2. OPI (Maroon)
I took the sticker with the name of the color off my bottle so I have no idea what it’s called. I can also explain the Chanel nail color- I would NEVER be caught dead paying 26 dollars for .4 oz of nail polish…but I would however accept it as a gift. It was free!
Love your blog :)
What a cute design! I’m so happy to have this submission! :) :) :)
Please excuse the title of this post, I took AP Art History as a senior in high school and I still take every opportunity to geek out about it.
Anyway, these nails are super easy. For colors, I used Wet n Wild nail color in Caribbean Frost and Wet n Wild Wild Shine in French White Creme and Blazed.
My good friend Gina (
ginadoesnails) introduced me to using a bobby pin as a dotting tool, and this is obviously proof that it works really well. So, what I did was bend the bobby pin open (so the other side wouldn’t get in the way) and dot my nails color by color. First, white, then green, and then orange. You have to put a lot of dots, but not necessarily as many as you would expect. Just plan accordingly, obviously filling empty spaces to make it look even.
I’m a little disappointed in the sense that I thought the orange I bought was a lot more pink than it actually is (this seems to be a common theme in my life) so the colors have a different look than I expected. But it’s no big deal.
I definitely recommend using a base coat because the dots are a pretty thick layer of polish. A top coat also, but be careful because you don’t want the dots to run together.
I hope you enjoy, let me know if you have questions!
