31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Polkadot Nails!

Deborah's manicure - Pop art polkadots

Hi loves! I am so excited to show you today's challenge manicures, because well, this one was really challenging haha. Not the theme, I love dots and have done lots of dotticures already, but I wanted to give this one some extra kick. And then, I saw this awesome manicure from Nailed It. I immediately knew this would be my challenge: perfect polkadots, covered in drip, executed in a pop art style.

I started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Then, using a small sized dotting tool, I created the "background". The colors I used are Bondi Fuchsia-tastic (pink), Bondi NYPD (blue) and Ulta Cha Cha (yellow). After the dots dried, I used a small nailart brush and the same colors to create the dripshape. Again, waited for it to dry, then used a short striper brush and black polish to outline the drip, and with a small dottingtool and the OPI created the "3d"  shape.

I hope you like the outcome, they aren't perfect but I was still proud of them!

Have you ever tried this kind of freehand nailart, like the drip shapes? 

Loqi's manicure - Phone case dotticure

Hi everyone!
This manicure was inspired by my crochet phone case! I made it myself using a multicoloured yarn, and I thought the colours would make a great manicure too! The phone is a Galaxy Nexus for those who are wondering ;)

I first painted my nails baby blue with Kiko - 339 Cornflower and then used several sizes dotting tools to make the pattern (the largest dots were actually made with the back of a pen, who needs fancy store bought tools right?). For the dots I used: Zoya - Mira (purple), China glaze - Dance baby (pink) and Herome - Frankfurt (blue).

This was a very easy manicure to do, but I had never done one like it, so I'm very happy with how it turned out!

Stay tuned for challenge day 12: Striped nails!
