Gradient Dotticure over MAISIE SHINE Powder Puff

Pin It SO I asked my lover-ly Facebook fans if they would like Indie swatches or nail art! It was a pretty good mix of one or the other, but one pretty lady suggested a mix of the two. So that's what I have for you today, a manicure from "the list" with an Indie!

L->R: China Glaze Exotic Encounters, Maisie Shine Powder Puff,
China Glaze For Audrey and China Glaze Kinetic Candy

So, the next nail art suggestion on "the list" was dots. I have been wanting to do a gradient dot manicure for awhile so, I figured this would be the perfect time to try it out!

I have reviewed Maisie Shine Powder Puff before BUT it was calling my name for this manicure haha. Here is a quick swatch of it:


2 coats of Maisie Shine Powder Puff

If you missed my review before, Powder Puff is a mix of large white hex, smaller white hex, even more smaller white glitter, iridescent hex all in a shimmery base. And, if you're interested in seeing Powder Puff with undies, you can find my original review here.

As you can see from above I used 3 colors they are, China Glaze Exotic Encounters, For Audrey and Kinetic Candy. I used 3 different sized dotting tools (which you can buy from Amazon or eBay for WAY cheap) to create the dots:


And here is everything together in all it's glory!

Yayyyyy! What do you think? :] Personally, I was happy how it came out! I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did, ya know? When you plan stuff in your head and you expect them to just look BAD? Haha I like that you can see the nail but not entirely so I think it gives it a different sort of look than using some opaque undies!

Want to catch up on other manicures from "the list", you can find them all in this tag.

Hope you have a good Sunday afternoon!
