Artsy Wednesday: Dotting Tools

Don't forget to enter my Blogiversary Giveaway and Nail Art Competition! There's three Born Pretty Store gift vouchers to be won. Entries close 5th August 2012.

The theme for Artsy Wednesday this week is Dotting Tools!

Colours used:
Barry M - Indigo
Barry M - Mint Green
Ulta3 - Lily White
Ulta3 - Mermaid Green
China Glaze - Holly-Day

The challenge for this week was to only use dotting tools with the exception of painting a base colour with a polish brush normally. I used Indigo for the base colour. Then I used all the other colours to do large and small dots. I love dot manis like this!

I think dotting tools are a great staple for nail fanatics to own. You can find these online fairly cheap. I bought mine on eBay.
