Artsy Wednesday: Dotting tools only

This week's challenge was hard! Dotting tools only... what can you do with just dots? Plus, I'm a little challenged when it comes to making evenly round dots... but after this mani I think I've improved a lot, and I might actually use my dotting tools a lot more in the future:


Base is ulta3 Mermaid Green, dots are OPI Skull and Glossbones, and ulta3 Black Satin and Lily White.

The panda was done with a range of different-sized dotting tools - I didn't quite have enough white loaded on the tool for the face so I had to spread it out a bit, but I think it ended up looking ok, if a little bit uneven...

What's your favourite dotty design?

  5. The unevenness of the panda head just makes it look fuzzy. Pandas are fuzzy, so I think it's great!
