Diagonal Dotticure

Hi there! A warm welcome to my first couple of followers 🙂

Today I have a dotticure for your enjoyment!

On my thumb and ring finger, I used Tip Top Nail Chic in 977 Jazz Berryblue and 978 Jitterbug Lime. On my index, middle and pinkie fingers I used Sinful Colors Professional in 944 Innocent (the lime green) and 959 Fly away (the blue). I selected the colours to be similar on all the nails, just with a different finish on the accent nails.

Wow, I really need to work on my cleanup skills. Sorry for the messiness. The green stained a little so I really couldn’t get rid of all of it.

I started off with 2 coats of the green (Jitterbug lime for my thumb and ring finger, and Innocent for the rest), then once it was dry I did the blue dots (Jazz Berryblue for my thumb and ring finger, and Fly away for the rest). Once that was completely dry, I applied some tape diagonally across each finger and did it again in reverse, 2 coats of blue followed by green dots. I topped it all off with Sally Hansen Insta-dri.

There are some strange shadows falling on that last picture, but you get the idea!

Despite the messy cuticles and some slight smearing I had when I top coated these, I was pretty proud of them. I hope you enjoyed them too!
