So I conceptually get dotting tools. They're a good idea and some people have done amazing things with them but I just can't get a satisfactory result of them. The dots are never completely even. That's usually when I say screw it and use glitter. I LOVE YOU AND YOUR CONSISTENCY GLITTER. Especially circle glitter. And unicorns always make things better.
To start I did the usual two coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather and went to town with my Essence top coat to get the white dots on. It's easiest if you do a row down the middle of your nail first as this will set the spacing for the rest of the nail. Just keep the distance consistent for the next column. You can use a small pair of scissors to trim any excess off the tips of your nails. Once dry, use a bunch of nail glue to stick your unicorns from The Sparkly Shop on. Yay unicorns!
The Verdict: I like the look of glitter so much more than that of dotting tools. Even takes about the same amount of time, believe it or not. And these unicorns go with EVERYTHING.
