Going Dotty

Rainbow time! After my failure with a rainbow gradient + water marble, I wanted to do something foolproof. Like dots. Lots of dots. And tape.

I present, LOTS OF DOTS. I found a cool looking design by denasnails and decided to emulate it. I snapped a photo of what my nails looked like before I taped them off. It’s pretty cool! Most of the colors are neon.

Post tape! I love sharp lines on nails, they always look magical. Or at least, impossible. When I started nail art (almost two years ago, wow) I was stunned at how artists could get lines so straight. Now that I know the trick, it makes me happy! Ahh, tape…and the delicate balance between finishing a manicure in under an hour and pulling off all the polish on your nail because the tape is too sticky.

Sorry about the ramblings. Its 2am and the power is out in my apartment so I decided to write a blog post. Forgive me…or laugh! Up to you. But yay, rainbows.
