Halloween Dotticure

Hi everyone!

Luckily, my break on my middle nail that I mentioned a few days ago wasn't quite as bad as I had thought. I still had to file my nails down shorter than I normally would, but I still have a little free edge to work with, so I'm pleased as punch with that.

I found this cool image on google of a polka dot pumpkin and I thought that it would translate really well into a nail design. The pumpkin even has a K on it, so it was totally meant to be used as inspiration for me!


The base for this design is my go-to black creme - Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme. For the dots, I started by creating them all in white with a couple of different sized dotting tools. I did this because I wanted to ensure that the purple, orange and green stood out against the black. Speaking of the purple, orange and green, they are China Glaze Spontaneous, Zoya Arizona and Orly Green Apple, respectively.


I got SO many compliments on this design, it's unreal! I guess that although it feels like it's on the simple side, it's definitely still eye-catching.


I'm hoping to get some spare time this weekend to do some swatching so that I can have more to show you than just my nail designs. My swatching bin has reached the point of overflowing now, and it pains me every time I look at it!

Thanks for looking!

  5. Gorgeous! It's simple but very eye-catching. I think your broken/shortened nails are longer than mine ever get... I'm a little bit jealous.

  10. Fun!

    I actually really like your current length. It's similar to what I recently cut my nails down to. It's long enough to have ample room for nail art and get complimented on the length, but short enough that it doesn't look freakish, and it's a little stronger at this length.
