Using a Dotting Tool

First start with clean nails.


Then take your base coat and apply one coat to each nail. I am using Sally Hansen’s Double Duty Strengthening Base and Top Coat. Which one of my greens puked all over. Sorry about that.


For this look choose two different colours, my colours are China Glaze Recycle 652 and Wet and Wild Black Crème.



Paint half of your nails with your lighter colour, if you want an accent nail, paint the accent nail on the other side. You might need two coats.


Then do the same thing with your other colour.


Here comes one of the harder parts. I will show you the steps, so hopefully you don’t get too lost. Take your darker colour and dot along the edge of the lighter colour, but don’t actually touch the edge. For your accent nail do the exact same thing only with the other colour. To dot place a glob of the colour on plastic wrap or aluminum foil or a paper plate or a zip lock bag. The options are endless. Take your dotting tool put it in the polish and then dot on your nail. Its quite simple.


Next take the opposite colour and put it along the edge so it covers the line and part of the dot to create a crescent shape.


Take a smaller dotting tool and dot the opposite colour and dot it in the middle of the dots you just made, using the same colour make a line of dots along the side of the nail on the other colour. I don’t think I explained that very well…


If you want to add a little extra flair to your already complicated nails take a sparkle polish or metallic polish and add dots on your accent nail.


I used China Glaze Icicle 1023.


Finish it all off with a top coat. I used the same polish that I used as a base coat.

Clean it all up and you’re done!
