dots on dots

Dots upon dots make for a mani that looks complicated but really couldn't be easier!


People kept asking me how I had the patience to do these nails and I just kept laughing to myself thinking about how quick it is to just dot on two colors.


I meant to post these nails ages ago when I was rolling along with all my China Glaze Summer Neons nail art, but I somehow left these out. And they were the best!
So I'm happy to be showing them off today.
(You may recall I did post very similar nails once already, here.)


These are probably three of my favorite colors from the Summer Neons.
China Glaze - Beach Cruise-r (fuchsia)
China Glaze - Splish Splash (blue)
China Glaze - I'm With The Lifeguard (green)

The formula on all of these is awesome, and I just adore the shimmer.
I will mention again though that I find it impossible to use these neons with OPI Nail Envy but that is my only complaint. They just don't play well together.


I love dots! Double dots especially! What do you guys think?

  13. Pet hate is people commenting I must lead a very boring life to "spend so much time on my nails" like you say practice makes perfect and it takes no time at all. I tried this last night on my tootsies with a different colour combo xo
