Painted Fingertips | Spots and Stripes Nail Art

Hi everyone!

Firstly, one of my wonderful readers has let me know that if you are following this blog via WordPress, you might not be seeing options to like and comment any more. Unfortunately, that seems to be a side-effect of moving to a self-hosted blog and there doesn’t seem to be a solution. All I can do is encourage you to follow via email or Bloglovin’, or just click through to the full post where you will see more pictures and be able to comment easily. Now, on to the nails! Painted Fingertips | Spots and Stripes Nail ArtI created these for a recent competition on the Glamore Cosmetics Facebook page, where the theme was spots and stripes. I remembered a recent post I had seen by @ohlerin on Instagram which I had been wanting to recreate, and that’s where the ‘spots’ part came from. For ‘stripes’, I decided to go with a simple but effective pinstripe. Painted Fingertips | Spots and Stripes Nail Art

I started with a base of Sally Hansen Pacific Blue on all my nails. The silver I used is an unnamed silver by Grazia from their caviar nails kit. For my pinstripe nails, I just placed striping tape, painted on the silver, and peeled the tape back off. For the spots nails, I painted a portion of each nail silver and then used various sized dotting tools to create the dots. Painted Fingertips | Spots and Stripes Nail Art

I love this colour combination and the effect of the overlapping dots. Painted Fingertips | Spots and Stripes Nail Art

What do you think of this look? What colour combinations are you crazy about?
