Tri-polish challenge: Dots and a gradient

Hello again!

I promised you a better post today, and here it is. This is my second of four manicures for the September tri-polish challenge. Once again, the colours I used were: For blue: Tip Top Nail Chic – Blue meets Green; for pink: Top Top Nail Chic – Pot-O-Berries; and for lilac – Essence Colour & Go – Absolutely Blue. I also used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear in White On.

I used completely different colours and changed up the pattern a little, but it provided the amazing idea 🙂dots1I really loved this look. It was so bright and happy, I can’t wait to try it again with different colour combinations! I started with a gradient of Blue Meets Green, Pot-O-Berries, and Absolutely Blue. Once it was dry, I marked off different regions on each nail with striping tape, and painted on the White On with a nail art brush. I then used 2 different sizes of dotting tools to apply the dots.


Honestly, this is one of my favourite manicures I’ve posted so far. What do you think of it?
