Nails: Contrasting dots

It's 12am here in the Philippines & im still awake..i was watching Charmed & doing my nails...

What you probably don't know is that i put nail polish only during weekends...I erase it come monday or tuesday...because i wanted my nails to take a break from all of the nail stuff that i put on it during weekends...

So this would be my nails for the weekend..


I watched JulieG713's video long before & its only now that i remember to do this nail look...

This is fairly simple & you don't even have to have a steady hand because it doesn't need to be perfect. Again, the main tool for this one is just a tooth pick..or a hairpin..if you have a dotting tool, then that's great.

How to:
Sorry for the pic..it's night time & there's not much that i can do about it....so bear with me while i walk you through this..

Start with a base color.
Then paint half of your nails with a white/contrasting polish

Dip the toothpick on one color because you will have to make random dots on the lower part of your nails
No need to make a uniform pattern...its more fun if you just dot the hell out, just keeping in mind that the other side should have more dots than the other...

Then dip your toothpick again on the other color to make dots, this time on the top part...


Do the same thing that you did with the lower part...make some dots, just making sure that the other side of your nails have more dots...so it would totally look like this in the end..

Top it with a clear polish & a finishing coat & you're good to go!

Simple & easy,huh?
It won't take you long..actually it would only take long if you use slow-drying polish...But if you use fast dry, then this is just an easy as a breeze!

Want to put a twist?...
Well, when you do the other, make sure that the base coat is the color that you used on the top part of your other hand...

Like this one!

Ok, now it's 1:26 am...
It's already saturday!

Happy weekend,everybody!
Mata ne!

wow you're really good at doing your nails . I like the design. I'm really impressed. I'm so envious ,I can only do nail cleaning on my left hand, sa right hand di na ako marunong ^_^. Lalo na sguro pag lagyan ko pa kulay, naku! Di ko ma-imagine ang kalat hehe.

BTW tnx for droppin by my blog. With regards to the Kojic soap, try using it first on your wrists because a few are sensitive to kojic acid soap. I hope this works for you too. Goodluck girl ^_^.
