I needed a red manicure to go with a fancy dress costume – which is no effort, as it is my favourite nail colour – but it had to be plain, which is a problem, as I get bored very quickly…
So I used the lovely OPI The spy who loved me, which I was really looking forward to trying, and after I attended the party, I decided to give it dots in two colours: Colorama Ameixa and Ana Hickmann Jurerê. It looks very berry!
The OPI application was good, their wide brush really makes life easier; the polish is a bit sheer, but two coats are enough. Durability is great!
The dots were applied with dotting tools in 3 different sizes; as it is only the second time I do them, I think they came out pretty well – still have to nail the dots distribution though.
Both polishes used for dotting were up to the task; the colours were solid enough. I wish I had used a lighter plum colour for the darker dots, as most of the time they seem black!
The only problem is that I added the dots four days after I did the manicure, so the cuticles in the pictures, which were taken six days after I did the basic red mani, are not looking perfect, there is a little bit of growth going on, unfortunately.
Still, I am pleased with this mani, and I shall be sporting more spotty nails in the future!

Very cute I love the red and the pink and purple dots. What is the name of the dotting tools and where did you get it from?
Hey! Thanks for your visit and comment! The tools really make life easier when it comes to dotting! I go a set from eBay, it has 5 tools with 2 dots size each! Very very cheap, less the £2! Just search for nail dotting tool, they have loads, like this one!
