dotting tools

with the amount of nail tutorials on youtube it was only a matter of time before i fell victim to them too. i have tried nail art before with tape but actual nail tools area a completely new area to me but i managed to find this cute little set in pretty pastel colours on amazon for less than $3!!! talk about a bargain :)

ive only had a play with them a couple of times so far but am loving them. they are super easy to use and there is no fussy clean up, just wipe the metal tips with a nail polish soaked cotton pad. all i did was simply dip the tool in a pot of polish and make little dots all over my nails for a polka dot effect. yeah its a basic design, but i'm a beginner and after seeing the results you can get with practice; owls, snowflakes and chevrons to name a few,  i can't wait to see what i can create. have you guys experimented with nail art?


  1. Your nail ideas are so cute and inspiring. I always want to grab all my polishes and try something new out after reading your blog!

    Thank you so much for participating in our Aloha Friday Blog Hop!! I am following you, of course!! Wishing you and yours a lovely week!!

  3. My left hand always turns out fantastic but my right hand.....not so much.

  5. Following from the hop! It's funny that I've been on the hunt for some dotting tools this ENTIRE week! Going to head to Amazon to see if I can find these!
