Blue is one of my favourite colours to have on my nails so here’s my entry for Short and Sweet in Texas’ April challenge.
I’ve seen so many versions of this manicure around and always wanted to try it. It’s a fairly simple idea and just requires a dotting tool, but I found it a little tricky to get my dots equally spaced. Most of my nails came out looking pretty good, just my ring finger looked a little bit clustered in one area.
I love this design as it looks impressive both from a distance and close up. I might try the classic rainbow version of this manicure if I come back to it again in the future.
I used: My Boyfriend Scales Walls – OPI, Dreamer – Revlon, Matte Aqua – BYS, Baker Street – Nails Inc, Sea Blue – Kiko, Vintage Blue – Marionnaud, Jacob’s Protection – Essence, (the very pale blue is a mix of Dreamer and My Boyfriend… as I didn’t have a really pale blue shade!)
Oh this looks awesome! Perfect placement of your dots!
Thanks! The dot placement is so much trickier than I thought it would be!
you have an impressive collection of blues. also very cute!
Thanks! Yeah, blues are usually first to catch my eye when I walk into a cosmetics store…
me too. its so bad…
It looks really, reeeally good. I won’t be surprised if people ask you if they’re nails stickers because they look perfect!
Thank you! It’s always so nice when people ask if nails are real or if they’re stickers – I spend so much time looking at the flaws that it’s a huge confidence boost when people ask questions like that!
Seriously looks like stickers – amazing placement and perfect colour combo. I want that one, that one, that one… does anything ever satisfy polish addicts?
Thanks! haha – no, there’s always something new to buy, try or perfect!
