Polished – I: Dotted With Gradient

Hey guys! I had a draft of this post for a while, wondering whether to post it or not, but I’ve decided to share it anyway.

One of the other “have more fun” things I’ve been experimenting with is nail art. I’ve always been a huge nail polish fan, and hardly a day goes by that my nails aren’t polished. One of my colleagues noticed that, and upon seeing my ridiculous collection of polishes said I should maybe try and learn/do some nail art. So I eBayed some dotting tools and brushes and the like, and went to work.

I had already decided I wanted to play with the dotting tools first, and this is the result of my first try:

Dotted With Gradient

(I apologise for the blurry photo, this was taken with the camera I returned, and by the time I got my new one, the mani was already gone.)

Unfortunately, this is the only picture I took of it, but I guess the intention is pretty clear. I also can’t remember the exact colours I used for it, although that’s not that big a deal either. I’ll try to be more thorough next time :)

So… What do you think about this mani? Yay or nay? I know it’s a bit messy, but as I said, it was the first time so I was pretty satisfied.

Thanks for watching & reading! And if you have any other ideas on what I should try, feel free to comment!

  1. All I can say is, “You’ve got patience!!” I don’t use polish anymore but I did go through a period after my ex left where I would pick out my clothes for the next day and then put on polish to match, green, purple, gold, silver, you name it. I look back with a smile and wonder where I got the patience to do that. Have fun with it. That’s what’s important. And I like the dots. :)

    • Glad you like them :) It’s funny you should say that I’m patient, because usually I have a huge lack of patience! It’s just my little bit of Sunday evening “me-time”. I’m definitely far too impatient to do it on a daily basis… Hell, 99% of the time I’m not even able to pick out my clothes for the next day. It sounds so easy, but it’s a mystery to me how people do it! Lol.
