Dotty Tip Nails

This is a super simple one I did one week when time was short, but I still think it looks pretty.

I also wanted an excuse to play with a flakie top coat over a nude base. Therefore I started by painting all nails in 2 coats of a nude colour.

After I took a bright pink and a light blue. Using a dotting tool I placed large dots along the tips of each nail, alternating the colours as I went to the next nail.

Then I covered everything with a flakie top coat before covering with my normal top coat.

Although the pictures do not really show the flakie polish well (I often struggle to photograph such polishes well), in reality it did give a nice subtle effect of flashes of different colours over the nails when the light hit them in the right places. You can probably see this best in the last picture.
