To be honest, lately I am feeling uninspired when it comes to nail art designs. Add to that being a bit lazy and being tired all the time, and you have lack of nail art posts! I can do swatches just fine, but when it comes to doing an actual design, my mind is just drawing blanks. My arsenal of techniques are also limited, so I can only do so many designs without repeating myself over and over again.
Anyway, enough of the whining! For this week's OWWWP, I did a design that is basic but one of my favorite designs to do: dotticure flowers.
Dotticure flowers are, as the name says, flowers made of dots. I did the dots using a dotting tool.
This is the dotting tool I use. It's double ended, with a small head at one end and a bigger one at the other end. It actually came in a pack of five, with different sized heads ranging from very tiny to large. I ordered mine from eBay (I forgot which seller but they're pretty much within the same price range.) Just search for nail dotting tool and you'll find a whole load of sellers, both within domestic and international.
I used three coats of Sinful Colors in Starfish for the base. For the brighter pink flowers, I used Pure Ice in Gossip! and for the darker flowers I used Pure Ice in Rumors. Rumors is appearing a bit more brick red than it really is a dark old rose/mauve. The yellow is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow. The white dots are Sinful Colors in Snow Me White.
And that's it for this week's OWWWP! I hope you enjoyed this post, and that you'll be back again for the next one. Til the next post! :)
*I bought these polishes with my own money. Sinful Colors can be found at Walgreens, Walmart, Target and other drugstores/retailers. They sell for $1.99 plus applicable tax. Pure Ice polishes can be found at Walmart (the only place I've seen them in, so far) and they sell for $1.99 each plus applicable tax.*
*Disclaimer: Due to variations in screen displays and resolutions, polishes may appear different to each reader. I try my best to capture colors as accurately as I can, and if I can't, then I try to describe the color/s to the best of my ability.*
