Nail Art Sunday – Dots

The theme for today’s Nail Art Sunday is DOTS! I love dots so I was very excited when the theme was announced. After thinking a little bit I got this idea of doing a manicure with a gradient where the dots are disappearing into one of the colors BUT I couldn’t make up my mind about the colors! This resulted in skittle manicure with pastels going towards white!

These are the colors I’ve used for the skittle:
Blue: Color Club – Take me to your Chateau and China Glaze – For Audrey
Pink: China Glaze – Something Sweet and Essie – Secret Story
Grey: Gina Tricot – Concrete Jungle
Green: China Glaze – Re-Fresh Mint and Color Club – Social Life

I wasn’t going to add the darker colors to the gradient but the color change was too subtle and I wanted some dots to show up lol. If you look close you can still see the white dots on white but from the distance I did achieve the faded dots effect I was going for from the beginning.

    Längtat efter ditt bidrag hela dagen! Hur skulle en NailArt Sunday med prickigt tema bli komplett innan du var med? Nu är den det och det känns så bra:D
    Queen of dots!

      Gud vad snällt av dig att säga så!! <3 Jag får tacka för valet av tema, som du vet är prickar mina favoriter :D

    Så otroligt snyggt! Du har verkligen lyckats få prickarna att försvinna i det vita. Sen gillar jag färgerna du har valt också :)

    • MyNailpolishOnline January 22, 2013 / 7:08 pm

      Tack så mycket Elin! Det känns som jag vill ha lite vår nu, därav färgerna :D

    Åh, great minds think alike! ;) Men ditt resultat blev mycket bättre än mitt, hatten av! :D Jag tror att min gradient gick på tok för långt upp, din slutar sådär lagom. Jag får helt klart öva! :D

      IKR? Din gradient var otroligt fin också, men som du säger slutade den lite för högt upp. Din manikyr blev väldigt vacker :)

    Fantastiskt vackert både med och utan prickar. Alla är fina, men jag gillade nog den grå bäst.

    • MyNailpolishOnline January 22, 2013 / 7:12 pm

      Tack så mycket Helena! Visst blev den gråa fin :)
