I love nail art, but to be honest I'm not the best at it and I don't tend to have the patience to spend ages practicing. So whenever I fancy doing something a little more than block colour or a glitter top coat, I revert to the dots. I think dots really do equal easy but effective nail art and you don't even need any special nail art tools or pens either.
In this case I used Maybelline Color Show in Lavender Lies as the main colour, then decided to make the accent nail pop from the purple using Barry M Matt White. For the dots I poured a little of the Maybelline nail varnish onto some kitchen roll and then dipped the end of a kirby (hair) grip into the varnish to then dot directly onto the nail. Just doing this on the accent nail means it takes no time at all. However if it hadn't been late at night when I did this, I may have done some white dots on the purple nails too. There are so many colour combinations that could be done for this, so it's nail art that doesn't get old either.
Are you a fan of dotty nails? What easy nail art do you love?
