the first of my valentines nails!

This will be my first valentines manicure for 2014! After I got my manicure station setup in my house last weekend, i sat down to do my very first mani there. I wanted to do something bright and busy! I didn’t have a plan…I just picked some vday colors and went to it…

heart dotticure nails

Here are the colors I used:
white- OPI Alpine Snow
black- China Glaze Liquid Leather
light pink- Zoya Sweet
bright pink- Zoya Ali
red- Zoya Carmen

In my last pic you can see I did the left and right hands a little differently.  I ended up really liking the solid nails with one little heart on top.  I will be doing that again soon I think.

valentines heart nails with dots

I did all this with just a dotting tool. Oh, and the five different nail polishes too. Lotsa dots and hearts, huh?!! The ladies at my eye doctors office flipped over them. I was secretly très proud of myself! hehe. People are always shocked that you can do designs like this by yourself, without having to visit a salon. But honestly, you can do all this with just a bobby pin.  A little practice doesn’t hurt either. You can even practice on paper!  If you never have, go ahead and try some fun stuff with dots! You may surprise yourself. 😉

  1. Do you or can you do a thing on nail dotting I’ve been wanting to try it but I have no idea hoe to do it I just got the tools

    • aww thanks !! I cannot believe how easy they are to maintain!!!!!!!! when i was squoval i was always filing trying to make them all look the same. i do nothing to these pointies. nothing! when one breaks I file them all a little shorter, but that’s all i do! my nails are very curved, so i think square/squoval wasn’t good since the sides were always bumping into things and bending. now i am carefree!
