Nude Gold & Red Half Moons, With New Dotting Tools

My dotting tools from eBay arrived the other day; and as I only had a little time to do my nails so I figured a half moon Mani with some dots along the line would be a good idea. Especially as I'd already got a dry base colour from the night before.

When I picked up this colour from No7 it was when the £5 off voucher was going around, and it was a toss up between a similar colour, but So Simple seemed more opaque.

Honestly, I'm not a massive fan of this shade of nude on me, and I wonder when I'll find my "mannequin hands" shade. It looks okay as the half moon, but to cover the full nail it's pretty pants.

Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colours: No7 - So Simple
                     Barry M - Raspberry
Gold: Citadel - Shining Gold (Warhammer Paint)
Top Coat: China Glaze Top Coat

Dotting Tools, Large, Medium Small & Tiiiny (I used the blue, and yellow one from my pack)

Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour - No7 - So Simple (3 coats)

Without all the gold.

 When I got these I thought the largest end would be much larger (not that it needs to be) and that I'd have more of a range in sizes. But looking closely at the pic of all the sizes below, I do have quite a range. These were such a bargain too, costing me £1.06 and free postage, if anyone would like a linky link. let me know :]
 And another pic of the end result :]


  1. I love my dotting tools! I have the same ones :)

  2. I have that same set of dotting tools-so obviously I'm the dot failure not the tools!!!!

  3. I love this half-moon mani.It's very much like Ditta Von Teese's artificial nails.You did such a good job with the whole mani.

    I would like the linky for the dotting tools.

  4. Thanks :]]

  6. how do you handle dotting with your left hand...? i m so bad with it lol:D

  7. @ Color Beam: For perfect dots using my left hand I'm rubbish, but for this, I kind of held it in my fist lol, and tried to do it slowly ^_^
