OMD2 challenge-Dotticure

Another challenge for me to get excited about!  I think it’s fairly obvious to anyone who has ever glanced at this blog that I love dotticures.  And I had the perfect idea in mind this time.  A while back I saw a mani on the SIMPLES Facebook page that used a matte top coat to make dots, and I wanted to do that.  I also recently bought my first full-size, non-topper bottle of OPI (crazy that I didn’t have any), and have been dying to use it.

Oh my God, this is gorgeous.  I am completely in love with this mani.  I cannot believe that an orderly dotticure came out looking this dang good!  I also had fewer mess-ups than normal, and moved much more quickly in my dots placement than I usually do.  Maybe practice really does make perfect!  Or almost perfect anyway.

The colors I used are Kleancolor Black and OPI Miami Beet, and the matte coat I chose for dotting is Essie Matte About You.  I have to say, I am very happy with my first real OPI purchase.  Miami Beet is everything I expected from the swatches I’ve seen!  An absolutely beautiful polish, and so easy to apply!  I will definitely have to get more OPI polishes eventually.

The next challenge on the list is ombre.  I hate ombre.  It can be such a pain.
