Care to see what I did?
When the theme was announced I wasn't sure right away what to create. Luckily, there was this little tin from Fossil sitting on my desk that has a chartreuse lid and black & white 3D dots on it. Not actually 3D dots, just the illusion ones where the white overlaps the black creating depth ;-). Inspiration found!
I chose to use Cirque Colors Hustle as it matched quite nicely to the color of the tin. Because I've not been painting my nails regularly I needed 3 coats, but if you are able to paint your nails properly you can get away with 2. After it dried I used a large dotting tool and some random black polish to create my dots. After they dried (important, or you'll pick up black when adding the white!) I added the white dots, putting them a bit higher and more to the right to create the illusion of 3D dots.
Dots always become a bit thicker so take your time to let them dry, otherwise you'll definitely smear them when topcoating (I still did a bit). I used a matte finish because ♥ matte ♥. And I was done!
What do you think of my 3D dots? And how would you have interpreted the dotticure theme? Tell me in the comments!
