There has been a few really pretty dotted gradients on Reddit Laqueristas lately, and I really wanted to give it a try myself. I meant to do a purple gradient, and somehow ended up choosing these very Autumn colours- silly with it being Spring and all...oh well!
I used the smallest dotting tool I own. Dotting tools are readily available on ebay (search nail art dotting tool), or you can make one by sticking a pin into the rubber on a pencil (or just use the tip of the pin if your aren't scared of sharp things!)
I started off at the base of the nail with the dots more spaced out, but ended up putting them closer together by the end. I think I prefer them bunched up.
The polishes I used were (starting at the base)
1. Rimmel Pro: Nite Flight
2. Mix of Rimmel Nite Flight and OPI Casino Royale
3. OPI: Casino Royal
4. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: Grey Area
5. Essie: Island Hopping
6. OPI San Tan Tonio
7. Rimmel Lycra Wear: Ash Rose
8. OPI Planks a Lot.
Thanks for reading :)
