Today I thought I’d have a look back at some of my previous manis using a dotting tool. Of course you don’t have to use a traditional nail art dotting tool, to do something similar you could use the head of a pin, the end of a hair grip (which is what I started with years ago), a tooth pick or the blunt end of a pen, they are all easy to use and you could even use a combination of all of them to create different sized dots.
Alternatively, if you’d like to go for it and get yourself some dotting tools you can pick them up from Pound stores, Sallys or sometimes Superdrug, Claires accessories and Boots carry them.
So here we go:

Autumn inspired dotticure
So easy, yet so strikingly spotted
Easy and classy black on matte gold
Fun Ladybird nails
A dot within a dot & glitter – a classic combo
A dotted fade
Daring pink & orange colour combo – I love it!
Please let me know which you like best. Have a good week!
