Hi ladies! I guess I’m on a bit of a dotting kick lately – but just for fun, let’s throw some tape in there too!

I started off with two coats of Nubar Reclaim, a supremely eye catching green holo.

My husband said it really reminded him of A England’s Dragon. Hmm. I might have to do a dupe comparison post!

I taped off my nails diagonally and used one coat of Color Club Worth the Risque, a gorgeous silver holo. I reversed the color block on my ring finger because, well, it’s me!

I used my large dotting tool with Worth the Risque and dotted along the tape line, making sure to leave space in between the dots.

Next, I used the same dotting tool with Reclaim and placed the dots in the empty spaces along the tape line.

Once the interlock look was in place, I used my small dotting tool with Reclaim and placed rows of dots over Worth the Risque.

I repeated this step with Worth the Risque over Reclaim.

I finished off the mani with one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

This was a fun and easy mani to work with. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Painting!

Colors: Nubar Reclaim, Color Club Worth the Risque

Oooh, I adore this design! I was really curious how you had accomplished this one, but it looks super easy, once you get the technique down. I’ll go for a try around Christmas, where I expect to get my dotting tools 😀
