Today I have a really easy manicure for you guys. I am all about easy when it comes to nails (for the record, easy is not to be confused with time consuming - sometimes I spend hours on one manicure). I have never pretended to be very good at anything requiring free-handed drawing, so easy is right up my alley. That is why I love dotticures so much (dotticure, n. - a manicure composed of dots)! I pull out my dotting tools all the time when I want to add a little something to a plain manicure. Here's what I came up with for your guys today:
I started out with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on my thumb and ring finger and two coats of Zoya Shelby on my index, middle and pinkie fingers.
I think these two polishes go really well together. Shelby is a light pink with blue undertones and My Boyfriend Scales Walls is a white that has grayish-blue undertones. It's hard to tell in this picture, but if you compare the OPI with a pure white, it's very obvious. Look at how shiny both polishes are on their own without top coat or anything! Next, I used my big and small dotting tools to create vertical lines down one side of the nail. I went over the white dots a second time to make sure they were opaque.
I still can't decide which hand pose I like better! I guess I'll just keep switching it up on you guys :) I hope you guys like this look! It's very simple, I know, but that's the beauty of it (in my opinion).
