31 Day Challenge Day 11: Polka Dots

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the 31 Day Challenge is polka dots. I decided to try interlocking dots. I have seen many other people doing beautiful versions of this but somehow I was not 100% happy with mine. However, it was a very eye-catching look and I liked it but just felt I didn’t get the interlocking part quite right. painted-fingertips-31dc2014-31-day-challenge-2014-polka-dots-interlocking-dots-day-11I used the two blues of the Tip Top Rikki Brest I Luv Denim duo for these. I started with the lighter blue and once it was dry I taped over half of each nail and added the darker blue. I then did the dots in both blues. painted-fingertips-31dc2014-31-day-challenge-2014-polka-dots-interlocking-dots-day-11Last year I did some very brightly coloured dots over a soft white base. I like the bright colours, perhaps I should try this again now that my execution is a bit better!
