Day 3 - Dotting Tool

6:00:00 PM

Welcome to Day 3 of the SNAARKM Challenge!  Are you enjoying it so far as much as I am???

Today is the Dotting Tool manicure.  I have been practicing tons with my dotting tool just for this very day!  Okay, not really, but I have been practicing.  I have done flowers, I have done random dots, polka dots, you name it.

Today, I decided to build on a technique I did when using the dotting tool for my Rubber Ducky Manicure.  Remember the lovely marbleized dots?  Well, the thought came to my head to use this technique to create lilacs on my fingers.

Here is what I came up with....

The thumb is my favorite of all the nails :)

Colors Used:
  • Base
    • Color Club - The Unknown Sky Blue Polish
  • Lilacs
    • Sinful Colors - Amythest
    • Sinful Colors - Verbena
    • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
    • Revlon - Charming
  • Leaves/Branches
    • Revlon - Sassy
    • Sinful Colors - Nirvana
The marbling technique is awesome.  You dab the colors on a paper plate which you want to marble.  Then with your dotting tool, you dunk the tool in each of the polish, then onto the nail!  After I had the lilacs, I added the details of the leaves and branches.

Easy, fun, cute, and Springy.

Bet the other challenge ladies did something simpler with more dots :)
