Rainbow Dots!!!

Posted on Sunday, November 28, 2010 | 20 Comments

I have a fun french manicure for you guys today!
  1. I freehanded the french tips with a pastel color (could also use nail art stripers to get the line)
  2. I went over the pastel color with a darker related color
  3. I used a dotting nail tool to draw on the dots.

    These are the polishes I used:

     Left to Right:
    WnW Lemon drops, Cotton Candy Delight, Bubble Yum Gum, OPI Rumple's Wiggin, WnW Grape Crush, Avon Vintage Blue, SH Pacific Blue, Avon Jade, OPI Jade is the new black
    **Pale yellow was made by adding lemon drops with white since I don't have a pastel yellow


    The dotting tool was provided by http://www.bornprettystore.com/ and it is perfect for nail art.
    I have this kit .  I used to use tooth picks to do the dotting but the dotting tool makes it easier to draw even sized dots.  If you don't have a dotting tool the toothpick still works =)
    I think the great thing about this kit is that the different dotting tools all come with different sizes so it allows you to vary your dot sizes easily compared to a toothpick.  The yellow dotting tool has a pointy tip so it can be used to pick up beads and rhinestones =)

    Disclaimer - The dotting tool was sent to me for review with no payment. My opinion is an honest one.

    So....OPI is having a 100 000 facebook fan giveaway, they will give 100 fans 6 retired polishes if OPI reaches 100 000 facebook likes by Dec 31. Awesome right?  Not for people residing outside of USA.  Like Me =(  The 6 retired OPI polishes that OPI are  giving away are Kinky In Helsinki, Smokin' in Havana, and Parlez-Vous OPI, HooDoo VooDoo, Cheyenne Pepper, and Sahara Sapphire.

    Well..guess what? I'm going to give OPI HooDoo VooDoo Away!! ..okay that's only 1/6 but at least everyone, anywhere, can have a chance to win it, it will be part of my 300 follower giveaway!  I'm still collecting my giveaway stuff but I'm working on trying to get some more rare harder to find items, so keep your eyes open!

    ***Edit: here it is, an original Winter Resort Collection 1995 HooDoo VooDoo!  Even the labeling is different!

    side note: how was everyone's black Friday? did you guys go shopping ? there isn't a huge black Friday shopping event here in Canada but I still ended up buying quite a few things..like motocycle boots, 2 coats, 2 pairs of jeans, nail polish. =)  I'll post pictures of what I bought up later

    I hope everyone has a great day!


    1. Gorgeous mani you have there hun..I love it..Love the colors combination that you used..^_^..

    2. I rather like this French manicure, I should utilize some of my striper(I'm always tempted to write stripper)polishes for a Christmas manicure

      Being broke I did not partake in Black Friday but of course I'll just make the BF buy Cyber Monday stuff as an early Christmas present >:)

    3. This is adorable! I love the way you did this and may copy...

    4. Very adorable! I cannot wait to test out dotting tools myself (:

      I also really like the looks of Avon Jade.. I might just have to order it - have been on the fence about it for awhile now!!

    5. Wow, this french is gorgeous. I'm in love=).

      Sometimes I just hate myself for not being born in the USA =).

      Congratulations on 300+

    6. I worked for black friday. At least I was earning it instead of spending it. This is a very cute mani and I love the skittles polka dot funky french goodness!

    7. omg, how cute! black friday shopping was a HOTTT MESSSS! but i got some good stuff, so i cant complain too much :P

    10. @AngiepInK: thanks so much! I tried to find rainbow colors and similar shades ..this made me realize that I don’t own a lot of yellows..so that means I need more yellow!!

      @BoldNBeautiful Makeup: Thanks!!

      @Kelly: Thanks for the kind compliment !

      @Delaynee: I can’t wait to see what you come up with . the dotting tools are rather awesome. My fav is the pink and yellow ones!! Avon jade looks like any mint green, if you have a mint green I’m pretty sure you can ignore the avon jade. The application was very smooth and opaque 2 coats
