Ahhhh the sun has been shining all week and it has put me in such a good mood! I spent the afternoon outside with my class today and it was lovely to get some good old Vitamin D. I even managed a run after work today as the sun was setting…beautiful.
Today I wanted to share my latest piece of nail art – the dotticure. A fun look that can be achieved with some polishes and a dotting tool.
I decided to go for a neutral base using one of my favourite nude nail varnishes – Lychee from the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine range. I love this polish and would quite happily wear it alone.
I decided to go with a purple theme going in a gradient from dark to light. I used Ultra Violet from Primark, Prickly Pear another Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polish and Go Ginza by Essie.
You can dip you dotting tool straight into the bottle but I prefer to dab some onto a piece of paper first.
I started off with my darkest colour and did two rows loosely following the curve of my cuticles.
I used Prickly Pear next to do one to two rows depending on how long my nails were.
Finally, I finished off with my lightest shade and a layer of my Calvin Klein Splendid Glaze topcoat.
I really like this look and am keen to try a mint green version soon.
