Dust Motes

Remember how a few weeks ago I mentioned that I liked swirling golden dots on black, and that I had re-done a manicure? Well, here is that manicure! And unlike the original, I consider this a full success 🙂



Again, I just hand-dotted on golden dots (Penny Talk by Essie) over black polish (Black on Black by Sinful Colors). I do wish I had different sized dotting tools, trying to control the amount of polish on the end of a hairpin is difficult!




I would have worn these on New Years, if I didn’t have to have my gel nails done by then. Oh well! They are still pretty!

  1. So pretty! I’m impressed with your hairpin dotting – must have taken awhile to get those smaller dots so uniform!

  2. What a gorgeous green. I love the dots!!!

  3. Beautiful! So intricate, and black & gold is just such a great color combination!

  4. LOVE it! The dots are all so perfect! 🙂

    Love this!!

  6. Very pretty! I rarely do swirly patterns like this, maybe I should more often 🙂
    BTW dotting tool sets are really cheap! You can get a full range of sizes from BPS for like $4, I highly recommend them. They’re fun!

  7. That mani is beautiful! I thought they were nail wraps because they look so perfect! Love it 🙂

  8. SO hypnotising, love them!

  9. I absolutely love totally contrasting colors looks like this!

  10. […] special because it is actually based off nail art I did for New Years last year (which can be found here). As in, I opened that image, picked my favorite nail, and in Photoshop re-created all the dots […]
