Inspired by... Pinterest!

Hi everyone, sorry I've been so lazy with these lately. I tried a gradient recently and I think it was enough for me to swear off nail art forever lol. Anyway, my Pinterest nails today are inspired by Dressed Up Nails' Dotty Hearts post. She did hers in a number of colors so each nail was different but I just chose two colors to alternate. Basically, the technique here is to use dots to create dot shapes and then outline it in another color. I used the same dotting tool but applied different amounts of pressure to get varying sizes and then went back with a tiny one to fill in gaps. The teal ones came out pretty cool but the purple on pink is a bit more subtle than I'd hoped.


Oh! The base color is Julep Carrie and the dots are Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing and Sweet Tooth. Go see what Amanda's got for you! (PS this entry counts for additional comments for my giveaway I posted earlier if you comment and let me know in the Rafflecopter widget!)

xoxo,
Amanda

Cute, This reminds of those color blind tests with the dots in 2 or 3 colors and there is a pattern in them. Cute mani.

Very nice...I just did my first dotticure mani for Easter. Doing a pattern in it (like your heart) seems like an awesome way to do it a second time. Thanks for sharing!

I like it Amanda! I haven't tried dots yet. Not sure what I'm waiting for either, maybe they'll just jump on my nails all by themselves. ;<) Have a terrific Tuesday!

They're pretty easy! You can use lots of household stuff even though I bought the dotting tools because for like $3 you can have 10 sizes of dots!

Thanks Melissa! I'd love to see how your dotticure came out!
