I love dots, in case it wasn’t blatantly obvious. I use them on my nails all the time and a good old dotticure is one of my go-to manis. So, the first of my Easter-inspired nails is dots, dots and more dots.
I started off this manicure by creating a sheer-to-solid gradient. Using a non-latex makeup sponge, I put on a band of OPI – My vampire is Buff and Zoya – Erin. I topped the gradient with a coat of Seche Vite to blend it and aid in drying time.
Using as medium dotting tool, I dotted each finger in a different pastel color. After one more coat of Seche Vite, I applied a Matte Top Coat.
- Essie – Grow Stronger Base Coat
- OPI – My Vampire is Buff
- Zoya – Erin
- Zoya – Dot
- Color Club – In De-nile
- China Glaze – Re-fresh Mint
- Sally Hansen – Lacey Lilac
- Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat
- NYC – Matte Top Coat
I actually liked the mani better before I matted it, but it wasn’t photographing very well. The matte top coat really diminished how sheer the gradient was towards my cuticles., but it photographed much better. The things I do for better pictures!
I like how delicate this is and feel like it is a perfect (and relatively easy) technique to use for spring nails!
