We’re so close to March! Which means spring! We had a dusting of snow yesterday, so I’m ready for spring nails. The Mary Kay spring 2017 collection of nail polish is very fitting, and inspired me to do a dotted look.
First, a swatch of my chosen base colour. This is New Blue, which is a super pretty Tiffany Blue shade. This shade screams spring, and has a super smooth creamy finish in 2 coats.
The collection itself contains 4 shades, all cream shades that look soft in the bottle. There is Vivid Sunburst (bright orange), Brilliant Violet (medium purple), Luminous Mauve (light purple) and New Blue (Tiffany blue).
The three non-blue shades looked very coordinating, which inspired me to consider a gradient, but then I realized I haven’t done anything dotted for a while, and since that’s my favourite nail art technique, I felt I had to go in that direction.
I used three different dotting tool sizes to layer Vivid Sunburst, Brilliant Violet, and Luminous Mauve over my base colour. Simple and quick, but oh so pretty.
I was surprised at the how dark Vivid Sunburst and Brilliant Violet turned out to be on my nail. In the bottle they look quite soft and pastel-y, but they are both bright and saturated on the nail.
Overall, I love this look. It fits the spring colours I want, and dots always make me happy.
Do you have a nail art technique that you love best?
