This past week I wanted to do something a little fall festive. In my mind I created sparkly pumpkins but in reality it didn’t work so well so I went with sparkly orange tips and green dots. It’s a personal favorite nail art that always gets lots of positive attention and is reasonably easy to do.
I used Sally Hansen’s natural gloss for the base and on the tips I used Zoya’s Tinsley which has become my favorite sparkly orange polish, not that I have a lot of orange but seriously, this stuff has perfect sparkle and I can’t help but smile everytime I see it on.
I then strategically placed some dots along the polish line — perfect for hiding what may not be an absolutely perfect line. The dots were made with Deborah Lippmann’s Billionaire using a dotting tool.
When I make a line of dots I always place the center ones first then on each side I space two more. I think it really makes a difference in the symmetry appearance.
As you can see my nails are short again. I am having a hard time with the squaring off. It just doesn’t feel natural and the corners keep getting caught, even with the sharp points taken off. I will persevere though, for a few more weeks anyway.
