I have to do something about the amount of glitter on my desk. I just cannot see anything else with the 30 or so sparkly pots just lying around. Today's mani took a concerted effort to resist the glitter but I'm glad I did. I've seen this design on pshiiit.com but I love the look of a dot gradient so much I had to do it myself. So, non-sparkly, black and white design it is!
First up, I added two coats of Wet n Wild Black Creme to four fingers and three coats of Joe Fresh White to my ring finger. White is always tricky to work with, just make sure your coats are thin and even and three coats should get you good coverage. Then, pouring out a little puddle of polish, I used a toothpick to dot each nail in the reverse colour. Keep an eye on your puddle, if it dries too much, you'll get little strings of polishes coming off the toothpick, like you see on my thumb. I love how this turned out, so eye-catching and bold.
The Verdict: I wish my thumb wasn't this streaky but from a distance, you can't tell. I love the different sized dots too, adds some visual interest. Hooray for resisting glitter!
