Dotting Tool: Green Dotting Machine!

This is the 3rd post in the SNAAARKM challenge. Today's theme of the challenge is the Dotting Tool. The possibilities for how to use a dotting tool are endless. You can dot, draw, stripe really do almost anything. I decided to keep it simple and do some chevron dot stripes :)

I started off with two coats of GOSH's Forest Floor. This is a lovely green creme, perfect formula and great coverage. Then I grabbed a medium sized dotting tool and OPI's Stranger Tides. I started at the tip of my nail and made a chevron pattern on my nail. Then I alternated with Essence's Choose Me! in the chevron pattern all the way up and down my nail. I finished off with a coat of Color Club's top coat!

I love using dotting tools and I really love dotticures. This is one of my favourite dotticures that I've done in awhile. And it's green! They are really growing on me I tell ya. I wanted this to all be in similar colours to tone down what has been on my nails recently so that's why I went for the all green palette.

Mani's like this are easy and fun to do, all it requires is dotting tools or a bobby pin, or a toothpick. Really you can find anything around the house to make this work! 


Do you like dotticures? Have you done any recently? What colours do you use for them?
