Colorful Dots on White

Hello anyone who still might be lurking! I know I've been gone a while, but I really felt the urge to post my mani today. Hopefully it's a sign I might be ready to return for good, but we'll see. I haven't been doing nail art much; I've been busy at work and school and combating some serious fatigue. Hopefully things will be calmer from here until I move (if I move, which depends on what happens after I graduate...scary), since I'm going part-time at school, and work is not as crazy anymore.

Anywhos, I also got a new camera, which has the option of manual settings. I think it's a great improvement over the last camera, and I love the amount of control I have over my pictures. So far, the colors look more true, and the pictures are sharper. I'm still working out some kinks though.

On to the main event: the manicure! Today I have a dotted mani on white base. It's simple, but it IS the first nail art I've done in months now. I love how colorful and fun it looks, and it was perfect for Easter. I don't really celebrate Easter, but I did hang out with some friends today and the weather was beautiful.

Honestly, I think it photographs a little better than I think it looks. With white polishes, I always get super self-conscious about my serious ridges. But here, it actually looks okay :) The technique is simple, just paint on the base color of your choice, and grab two dotting tools in a medium size and a small size. I actually think I should have gone with a beige base instead of a stark white, so I'll keep that in mind for next time.

Leave any thoughts in the comments! Happy Sunday :)
