Polka Dots

Apparently, I have too much time on my hands. I wanted to do some nail art(?) that would match the blouse I wore today, (not in pattern, but with the same colors) so I broke out my dotting tool and played around. This is after work, and my job is b-r-u-t-a-l on my polish, so try to excuse the chipping.

My right hand has been more densely dotted than the left. I think I like the less-dotty left hand better. I used Maybelline Express Finish in Dreamy Taupe as the base, and Finger Paints Cobalt Cardigan/Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine unnamed blue mini bottle for the dots.

If you don't own one, go out and get yourself a dotting tool. You can purchase them at Sally's, or extremely inexpensively on e-bay. (I got a set of 4 for 8 different sized dots for $7.00 bucks with shipping off of e-bay). It's a lot of fun to do, and the possibilities are endless. I just put a bit of polish on a piece of aluminum foil and dipped the dotting tool into it. I would just caution that if you're using polish to dot with (you can also use acrylic paint), just pay attention because the polish will thicken up as it is exposed to the air (as evidenced by that goofy line on my middle finger...thanks thick polish).

Thanks, girls! I love dotting (although I have a strong tendency to get a little too crazy with it).

I'm craving a little Pryncss Konad, just so you know.
