This week, some of the Digit-al Dozen are putting in a little overtime and doing an extra week of nail art – specifically dotticures. Often, when I dot, I do the same thing over and over, so the goal for me this week was to do dotting patterns I hadn’t tried before.
We start today with the mermaid dotticure. I’ve seen this so many times, and every time I do, I swoon. It wasn’t as difficult to do as I feared – the main pita is that you have to keep refreshing your blobs.
I started at the cuticle and worked my way down. Next time though, I think I would do this on a white base. I did it over Indigo Bananas Acid Ocean, because I wanted the teal flakies in that to peek through (which they do), but it sometimes made it really hard to see where I was going.
So – the polishes :
· Base – Indigo Bananas Acid Ocean
· Literary Lacquers Swallowed Up In Blue
· Literary Lacquers Love You Forever
· Pahlish This Song Is Ending
· OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls
· Illamasqua Viridian
I think I got the balance of colours and finishes just about right – I like that there are lighter notes, and that some are shimmery and others are very opaque.
I’ll definitely be doing this again. Timewise, it honestly didn’t take me too long – probably 15ish minutes for 1 paw. I can live with that.
