Violet Polka Dots Nail Art

ORLY

So last night I went out for my friend birthday. I was a little pressed for time, since I take longer to get ready than should be legal. I’m consistently in the severe habit of wearing only black or grey when I go out. So, I always try to have a blast of color on my nails …. and then, of course, I have to match the make-up to the nails.  So I grabbed my dotting tool, and went to town!!

I started off with two coats of Zoya Savita, an absolutely luscious deep purple matte. Next, I used Revlon Blue Lagoon, Kiss Black, and Kiss White to create the dotting pattern.

I kept a paper towel handy so that I could keep my dotting tool clean in between applications. (I used the large dotting tip only for this step.) I wanted the lines to be precise, so I started the top line in Blue Lagoon, and made just one dot. Next, I used the white to place the second dot next to it, slightly higher so that the lines would slant. I just repeated the process until the nail was full.

Finally, I used the small dotting tip with Black and placed the dots above each line of larger dots, in between where the larger dots appear. I almost left it at that, and finished getting ready. But there is something about Savita with a gloss finish that simply dazzles and commands attention! So I finished it off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast. To be honest, I adore this mani! And I had an absolutely fabulous time out!!!
