Ditsy Dot Nail Tutorial

Hi Guys & Dolls!

I recently got a very cute dress from Torrid with an Asian inspired  ditsy floral pattern and from that color palette I was inspired to do this nail tutorial for you. The colors match the dress perfectly! Tuesday I wore this out to do my highly fashionable errands like grocery shopping & doctor’s offices, and I received loads of compliments! I couldn’t decide if I liked this better with or without the orange dots over the mint color (in person it looks 3D) so I gave you guys both options. I hope you like this, it’s been forever since I did a nail tutorial!

For those of you concerned with my health; I’m feeling a bit better, I have more energy and I’m not as achey. Hopefully I’ll be all better by this weekend because that’s Mikey and I have tickets to see Wicked this Sunday! SO EXCITED!!!!

What I used For this Nail Tutorial:

Base Coat- Milani Smooth Base Coat

Mint Polish- Wet ‘n’ Wild I Need A Refresh Mint

Black Polish- Milani Black Swift

Dotting Tool (if you don’t have this, just use a toothpick)

Dots- Milani Fast Fuchsia, Jiffy Orange, Violet Dash, White on the Spot and Wet ‘n’ Wild I Need A Refresh Mint.

Top Coat- Milani Top Coat (I prefer their Glosse Top Coat or Seche Vite)

    I personally like the design better without the orange dots over the mint. It’s a super adorable design either way ! 🙂 I’m going to have to try it out

    Is there a specific reason why people pick their ring fingers for the different designs? I’ve seen it all over the place but no one ever explained it. Or they did and I just never listened, haha. I love that mint color. Next time I’m at Walmart I’ll try to look for it.
