Black and White Dots

This is the final design I attempted before choosing my Black and White flower design to submit. I saw this design at Pshiiit and immediately wanted to try it.

I started with a coat of Ulta3 base coat then applied two coats of Ulta3 Lily White to all nails by my thumb and ring to which I applied a single coat of BYS Black Satin. Then I used my medium dotting tool in the opposite colour to the base colour and added a large amount of dots to the tip and then less as I got further down the nail. I sealed the design with a coat of Revlon Colorstay top coat.


Pictures ahead :) I managed to knock my ring finger and you can see my print on the design :(

Although I really love how this turned out I preferred my flower design for entering the competition. I really love the simplicity of this design and it was so quick and easy to do! This is definitely a design I'll try again with actual colour :)
