Before I paint my nails, I always search pinterest for some ideas and I found this one cute design that I loved. It’s similar to a French manicure in my opinion but definitely not one. Here’s the link to the post.
For my base color, I pulled out a color that’s been hidden for a while and recently discovered it again. It’s Sinful Colors Sunburnt. It’s a red orange, very pretty and gives a pop of color. It’s opaque in 2 coats like normal.
Next to do the half top of each nail I grabbed Sally Hansen’s Insta Dri Grease Lightning, it’s a dark grey but once applied it can look almost black. Before I applied that, I took my thin nail tape and lined out the portion I wanted to paint for a clean line.
To do the poka-dots, I used Wet n Wild’s French White Crème and the largest dotting tool I own and did 4 one each nail but pinky I could only fit 3. I ordered my dotting tools off amazon and you can find them here
I ended up not liking how the grey and red came together so I took my Kiss Nail Art Striper in Silver and lined each one.
I loved how this mani turned out! It took me a while to get it all finished but was happy that there were no smudges or mess ups. I’m slowly getting better with my nail art and using my dotting tools.
