May Nail Art Challenge #2: Dots!

[Apologies – this post was supposed to go up on May 4, the date of the second prompt, but it didn’t post for some reason, so today is going to be a double post as I upload this late!]

Hi everyone! How’s your week going? It’s been deliciously overcast and rainy here this week, which of course I am loving! It partly inspired today’s manicure, since I wanted something a bit darker than the brights I’ve been obsessed with lately.

As I said in my last post, all this month I’m doing manis based off prompts from a nail art challenge I found on Instagram, and today’s prompt is dots. I feel like I’ve been doing dots a lot lately, so I wanted to do something a little different, and I love doing designs at my cuticle, so I decided to do a little dot pyramid.

The base is OPI’s Amazon, AmazOFF (sigh…those OPI names, man). I really love this color – it’s a gorgeous, saturated jungle green and I can’t get enough, despite usually preferring more yellow-toned greens. The formula was great, too, so definitely pick this one up if you want to add a deep green to your collection! For the design, I didn’t really know what I was going for, so I just kind started playing around, and I really like the idea of it, although my execution was a bit shitty (partly because I smudged two of my nails and had to try to salvage them, blerg). I knew I wanted to do something at the cuticle, so I used my largest dotting tool for one dot, then did some smaller ones surrounding it. I used my tiniest dotting tool to do the gold of the outer dots, and I should’ve used it to do the gold dot in the middle of the biggest one, but I used my big tool and thus covered up way more of Warhol than I wanted. Oh well, it’s not too bad for just winging it!

Thanks for reading! I hope you liked this look, and I’ll be back in a few days with the next prompt. See you next time – A x
