Nail Focus: Dotty Red and Gold Look

Drawing a bit of inspiration from Gem Fatale’s polka dot nails Tuesday Tip from last year, I created a nail look that reminds me a little bit of Christmas wrapping paper (I’m missing my favourite time of year already).

I used the excellent Nailgirls Nail Colours in Gold #2 and Red #1 which are now discontinued, but any colour from the range will work well. The consistency is great for creating smudge free dots – not too thick and very pigmented.

After painting my nails alternate colours, I straightened out a kirby grip and dipped it into my pot of polish. A useful tip is to wipe off a bit of the excess onto a piece of paper first so you don’t end up with ginormous splodges of colour on your nails. When I was done dotting in gold, I used the other end of the kirby grip to create my red dots. Easy!
