Hot Dots

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. 

With spring's arrival came a lot of fun and colorful nail trends on Pinterest

I love the confetti manicures I've been seeing everywhere and I especially love this tip from The Beauty Department. 

I wanted to give it a try but I don't have little nails and I have no idea where to find a pencil in this house. So I improvised. I thought I would give it a whirl with toothpicks. 

But as I was pulling out my nail polish I came across a makeup brush I don't use. Perfect! I tested both of them out for you. 

I decided to combine bright coral and gray confetti on a white base.

 I poured a small amount of polish on some wax paper and began dotting.

The brush worked great. Now time to test out the toothpicks.

Wahoo! It works awesome!

Granted my nails don't look perfect - but I think the toothpick dots are more consistent and neat than those from the brush.

Next time, maybe I'll combine dots and stripes. I'm becoming quite ambitious.
