Now You See Me ...

Hi everyone!!  I got another new indie in yesterday, and couldn't wait to try it!!

I started with four coat of The Hungry Asian Belle, a sheer white cream with brown hex and pink micro glitter.  

And yes, you read that right, I used four coats.  Three would have done the job just fine, but I tend to be an overachiever sometimes!!!

I wanted to do something with this that would "pale in comparison" ... if you know what I mean!

I used my tiny, small, medium, and large dotting tools with Essie Sand Tropez, a light sandy nude creme, and Essie French Affair, a soft pink creme, to create a dotted gradient effect.

I started by using my large dotting tool, and placing random dots in both Sand Tropez and French Affair along the tip of my nail.  I repeated this step, decreasing the size of the dotting tool, up to the middle of my nail.  I finished with one coat of SV.

When you look closely, the dots are very much present, but, at a glance, all you will see is lovely Belle!  
I hope you all enjoy!

Happy Painting!

Colors: The Hungry Asian, Essie Sand Tropez, Essie French Affair
