33 Day Challenge 1: Dots

The Crumpet's Nail Tarts is having a 33 day challenge spread out over the next couple of months.  With school, I'm not sure how many I will be able to get done (even my day off each week is crammed with studying and errands!) but it's so fun to participate in challenges with others that I want to try to get some in!  Today's theme is dots, which is really the only nail art I can pull off.  I wanted to try something different because I've done a few before, some that I love so much that it's hard not to default back to them!
The camera flash is very unforgiving on this one because the polishes are so glittery, but in real life they turned out so pretty and subtle (you know, aside from the bright orange :) )

*1 coat Yello-Out
*2 coats China Glaze Riveting
*China Glaze I Herd That
*1 coat Out the Door

I wanted some fall colors and was trying so many combinations in my head for some cascading dots.  Then, I decided to just choose 2 that worked and use the dots to make a tip of sorts for the nail.  It's hard to make the out here (great choice for the first challenge post, right?) but I love them on.  

I LOVE Riveting.  The gold shimmer gives it a glow and, as you can see, is undeniable in this polish.  I Herd That is a gold glitter with some holo and reddish flashes.  I dotted it over Riveting at the tips of my nails.  I don't have a really good light that will let me turn off my flash, so I apologize for the poor quality of these, especially because the combo is so awesome in person!
I'm really excited to see how the other ladies use their dots.  Like I said, it's the one art technique I feel comfortable with and I'm always looking for new ways to use my dotters!


  1. Love this combo!! Perfect for the fall!

    1. I loved them together--it's a bummer they are so hard to see here. You are always just the sweetest, Gosia, with such nice compliments! Thank you for making blogging so welcoming and positive!

  2. I really like both of these polishes, they are stunning, and I like the way you did the dots, very pretty!

    1. Thank you so much! China Glaze really does know how to do sparkle. I LOVE the amazing art that you do and it means so much that you took the time to comment on my li'l ol' dotticure!
