Contest Entry: Dotter Stripes

Chalkboard Nails is hosting a nail art contest. The rules are simple – you are only allowed to use regular nail polish (no acrylics), and your tools should be limited to the polish brushes and dotters. You are allowed to use a toothpick or similar if you don’t have a dotter.

I thought long and hard on what to do for this, and finally decided to go for stripes rather than dots. The technique I used is the same as I have shown previously here.

I striped my nails in a three colour gradient and wrapped my tips in the darkest pink (Raspberry Rush).





Polishes Used:

Collection 2000 ~ Angel Wings (3 coats)
Color Club ~ Raspberry Rush (top stripes)
Color Club ~ Yum Gum (middle stripes)
Barry M ~ Pale Pink (bottom stripes)
