Although I'm usually not the type to experiment with nail art tools and what not, after seeing Kat's post on nail dotting tools I knew I had to get them! For only a measly $1 from ebay, these dotting tools are excellent for making regular manicures into works of art. As you know from my previous NOTD posts, I am not that very creative when it comes to nail art, but I do love, love, love my accent nails! So of course, I created a simple spotted accent nail.
Using Essie's Meet Me At Sunset for my main nail colour and Haute As Hello for the nail art colour, I created vibrant, fun summery nails. Despite the horrible weather in Sydney recently I wanted to lift my mood and add a pop of colour to my outfits - and nothings lifts your mood like an electrifying deep orange shade!
For the dotting tools, the $1 set came with 5 different pens - each with two different sized points. For this look, I used the larger ball on the green pen (which is pictured above). I think these are actually very versatile products as you not only can create many different sized dots, but you can also use them to create other shapes and lines. Additionally, because some of the pens do have quite tiny points you can be extremely precise with your drawings. For only a $1 these are certainly a major steal - so I definitely would encourage you to head over to ebay and snatch up a set! (just type in 'nail dotting tools' and it should come up)
Hope you enjoyed this quick NOTD post and let me know how you like to decorate your nails!
