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!
