Dotticure with $OPI XOX Betsey, 2 Sinful Colors and China Glaze 2030

Hi girls! Last Friday I wanted to paint my nails, but I had just cut them short (sometimes I get really tired with my nails and just want them as short as possible) and was feeling totally uninspired. I asked some friends what I should do and the lovely Loqi said "a dotticure" . I had never done dots before.

So, I wanted to do dots! I used 2 coats of $OPI XOX Betsey as my base color  it is such a nice pinkish nude that somehow gives me the feel of porcelain nails. I used Sinful Colors Athens, In The Mist and China Glaze 2030 for the dots. I used one size dotting tool, to keep it a bit easier for myself. I just dabbed some polish blobs on the metal backing of a stamping plate, that worked very well for me! In the past I never really knew how to get the polish on the dotting tool...

Hope you like the outcome and I am sure doing more dotticures in the future!

  2. I love the simplicity of this! And I know what you mean about just wanting to cut your nails short. I used to maintain my nails to the perfect length and shape, but now I just chop it off. Haha ^^

  4. Can't believe you haven't done dots before! This SOPI is on clearance at my local Sephora, and I really resisted the urge to buy it and put it down. But damn, the feeling is back again! I love nudes like this, with that pinky undertone to it.

  6. You are absolutely right, I am trying to work on other poses for when I have accent nails, because you just don't get the whole picture now :(.

  7. Thanks Liz :). Well I don't always chop them off, but sometimes they are just.. anooying. They don't shape like I want too, the same with your hair sometimes when it doesn't do what you want :P.

  8. I know right? I had these dotting tools for ages but just never really tried them. Now I can't stop using them.

    I bought it on clearance too and it is REALLY worth it. It applies easy and looks so pretty!
