Silver with Purple Dots

Sorry for the lame title. No idea what else to call this. I'm pretty excited because this idea just sorta came to me. Lately, I haven't been too creative when it comes to thinking up nail art ideas. Not that is this particularly creative, but it was fun to poke through my helmer and as I picked up polish, this idea slowly emerged. And I'm pretty happy with it!!

1 coat China Glaze Icicle
1 coat Best Topcoat (trying out a new topcoat)
Lightest purple/white dots - Sally Hansen CSM Lavender Cloud
Light Purple - Essie Nice is Nice
Dark Purple - China Glaze Spontaneous

This was just sorta fun! I started looking for coordinating purples, figured dots would be neat. Then I was debating different "background" colors. Maybe a pale green or blue. Maybe just white. Then it hit me. Silver. So I went with it!

I just used my set of dotting tools, the same size dotter for every dot. In hindsight, I wished I had positioned the dots a little differently, but I still have the idea in my head (and a fun title for the post!) so I'll try to do that another time :)

  1. Very cute! I don't know why I didn't think to overlap the dots.

    I actually ended up adding more dots. I had three of each color and it didn't give the look I wanted so I went back and added more where I thought they needed it!

  7. I love purple and I'm a big fan of this design. VERY COOL!

    I also wanted to say "thanks!" for doing the shot where we can see your entire hand. I have coloring very similar to yours, and I appreciate that I can see what a color might look like -- not just the nails, but on the whole hand. :)
