Arden: Goodness, I had a hard time figuring out what to name this manicure! Curved dotted lines? Funky dot pattern? I guess dotted half-circles it is!
I started by painting my nails Essie Mint Candy Apple (one of my favorite light green shades!).
|Please excuse the smudged dot on my pinky. I have no idea how I missed that!|
Then I used a small wall nail to make tiny dots in concentric half-circles. I used Essie Fear or Desire for those smaller half-circles.
I had been pretty excited about the idea for this manicure, and then I ended up being kinda disappointed with it afterward. I dunno what it was, it just wasn't as cool as I'd hoped it would be. My boyfriend told me the color pattern reminded him of the now-defunct Charlotte Hornets, so I guess that was something at least?
I'll try to do better with my next dotted manicure-- check back to see how it goes!
