Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.


Today I am sharing another nail art contest entry. This is for a contest on Chalkboard Nails. The challenge for the contest is to use nothing but dotting tools for the nail art, no brushes or any other stuff, just dotting tools. Also, no acrylic paints were to be used either.

I have never done anything with my dotting tools other than, well, dots. I loved doing this, it was really outside of the box for me.

I'm not really sure why this theme came to me but it was the first thing that came to my mind and I did a few sketches and then tried it out on a nail wheel. I love how it turned out.

The polishes used where NYC French white tip, Sinful colors Why Not, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear mellow yellow, and 7 China Glaze Polishes; Recycle, Gothic Lolita, Gaga for Green, Electric Beat, Wicked Style, Aquadelic, and Kinetic Candy.

I also used three different sized dotting tools. I used the tiniest one, a medium sized one and the biggest one.

I had a lot of fun working on this, I can't wait to see all of the other creative entries.
