Grey Half Spots

Hey everyone! I've been debating whether or not to post these nails, as they didn't really turn out how I envisaged. I'm not really sure what I wanted them to look like, but I definitely wanted the accent nail to be a bit more bright and bold. I thought the yellow would work a lot better than it did, it just doesn't stand out enough, especially not for photography's sake. However, this is a diary of my designs, good and bad, so here you go. It's simplistic but there's something about it I really like (except the accent nail).

The base of these is OPI - I Cannoli Wear OPI, and then I used Barry M - Miami and Barry M - On Your Marks for the dots with a dotting tool. And then I used Barry M - Matte Topcoat to finish off the design (after a coat of Seche Vite to smooth things out)


What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

  3. Candy nails! Cute. I like that you post them, even though you're not perfectly happy with them. I'm the same, it's a design diary, not a portfolio.

  7. I'm glad you posted these because I'm totally in love! I think my next attempt at dotted nails are going to have to be halfsies like these, they look fabulous.
