So as you can see, I'm reviewing Born Pretty Store's pink dotting tools which I used to create the polka dots pictured above, and these dotting tools are very cheap as they only cost $4.74 for a five pack! I did the math and yeap, that's less than $1 each! 8)
For this mani, I used a pastel baby blue polish: Color Club Factory Girl, and a pastel baby purple polish: The Face Shop PP404. I used the dotting tool with the biggest sized metal 'dotter'.
TIPS for using dotting tools:
- Don't rush. I found that when I rushed, my hand would often slip and the dot would come out oval looking, or I would dot in the wrong place.
- Don't dip the tool into your nail polish bottle... chances are it will come out with a lot more polish than you need. I recommend putting a blob of polish on a piece of paper (or something disposable and flat) and then dipping the tool into that.
- Once you finish, remember to clean the tips with a tissue (or nail polish remover.) so you can reuse them again.
- Practice makes perfect! Yes, very lame but it's true!
Overall, I can see myself using these more in the future. They are so versatile and hopefully I can come up with much better and more creative designs.
