Dots in a Dash!

So last night I went out for my friend Jacky's birthday.  (And let me just say, Jacky is decidedly awesome.)  I was a little pressed for time, since I take longer to get ready than should be legal.  I'm consistently in the severe habit of wearing only black or grey when I go out.  So, I always try to have a blast of color on my nails .... and then of course I have to match the make-up to the nails.  ('Cause, ya know.)  So I grabbed my dotting tool, and went to town!!


I started off with two coats of Zoya Savita, an absolutely luscious deep purple matte.  Next, I used Revlon Blue Lagoon, Kiss Black, and Kiss White to create the dotting pattern.


I kept a paper towel handy so that I could keep my dotting tool clean in between applications.  (I used the large dotting tip only for this step.)  I wanted the lines to be precise, so I started the top line in Blue Lagoon, and made just one dot.  Next, I used the white to place the second dot next to it, slightly higher so that the lines would slant.  I just repeated the process until the nail was full.


Finally, I used the small dotting tip with Black and placed the dots above each line of larger dots, in between where the larger dots appear.  I almost left it at that, and finished getting ready.  But there is something about Savita with a gloss finish that simply dazzles and commands attention!  So I finished it off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.  To be honest, I adore this mani!  And I had an absolutely fabulous time out!!!

Colors: Zoya Savita, Kiss Black, Kiss White
