Guest Post from Deborah at ‘Love. Varnish, Chocolate and More…’
Hey guys, today I have a guest post from Deborah at ‘Love. Varnish, Chocolate and More…’ who I’ve been a fan of since I started blogging! I found out about her through twitter a long time ago so I’m very excited to have her do a guest post for me! She has amazing macro shots and her nail art is always so flawless!
Hi everyone! I am happy to be posting here today as Bridget needed some guest posts because she is busy with work. My name is Deborah and together with my weekly co-host Loqi (Manon) I run a nail polish blog called Love. Varnish, chocolate and more…. I post about polish almost daily and like to try something new every once in a while.
One of the new things I tried recently were dots. I never did a dotticure before though I have enough dotting tools. I am not sure why, probably because I was afraid to fail at doing my non dominant hand I guess. Luckily, I found out I actually can do dotticures and so I decided I wanted to do a pink toned for Bridget!
I started with a base of OPI Dim Sum Plum. I only recently got this beauty through a swap and boy is this a beautiful polish! A one coater, lovely pink creme finish, perfection. After it dried a bit I took out 3 sizes of dotting tools and 3 polishes, OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender (a soft pink creme), China Glaze Stella (a lovely shimmery purple) and Miss Sporty 203 (a pink toned chrome polish).
For me the easiest way to do the dots is as following: take something you can put a blob of polish on (I use a stamping plate with a metal backing), blob on some polish, take your dotting tool and do all the nails on one hand, refresh the polish blob (if it gets too thick it won’t dot properly anymore) and do the other hand. Repeat this with your other colors and/or sizes of dots. Let it dry for a few minutes and top with some topcoat and you are done!
I hope you enjoyed my post and the dots! Thanks Bridget for having me over at your fabulous blog :).
Thank you for such a lovely guest post Deborah! I love the color combination and the perfectly executed the polka dots! I just added China Glaze ‘Stella’ to my wishlist too. Have you guys tried this combination of large and smaller polka dots? Until next time…
