Rainbow Dotticure

Hey everyone!

Tonight I needed a really quick design because I have to watch a 2 hour presentation online for one of my classes and that starts very soon. Ugh, not fun.
So I originally just decided on a simple polka dot design but to make it a little more interesting, I went for rainbow polka dots and I'm really happy with the result. Plus, it's super simple and anyone can do this design, all you need is a dotting tool and your choice of polish colours!



Products:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
OPI - Alpine Snow (base)
Zoya - Jolene (pink dots)
China Glaze - Papaya Punch (orange dots)
Orly - Spark (yellow dots)
Orly - Green Apple (green dots)
Zoya - Robyn (blue dots)
OPI - Funky Dunkey (purple dots)
Seche Vite Top Coat


P.S. I might be unable to post for the next couple of days. I have both an exam and a paper due on Friday so I need to put a lot of time into that. Additionally, my Dad is going to the hospital tomorrow to have a major operation so I'm going to be spending time with him as well. I'll be back as soon as I can though. :)

  30. Belen: I use a small, round paintbrush (think of the shape of a concealer brush, just smaller) dipped in acetone. I'm planning to do a more detailed post about this in the near future because it's a question that I get asked a lot.

  31. I think this looks really nice!
    I'm afraid I'll never be able to pull that off using my left hand (I'm right-handed), do you have any tips?

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is amazing!! I'm saving this for future inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
