Hubby's Picks (HP37) revealed!

After hemming and hawing over various art styles and techniques I decided to just go simple. These colors were just so pretty that I felt complicating it would detract from them. So here's my dot manicure.

Get the look:
  • Begin with your base color (Barielle Budda-Ful). I chose to build mine up to nearly opaque (three coats), but don't be afraid to leave a little visible nail line. It will work with this look.
  • I used the green and white of my dotting tools from this set. I chose to seperate my two blues to create more color variance. The large single dot is Dolish Polish Space, The Final Frontier. The green is Orly Green Apple, and the final blue is Julep Julianne.
  • Finish by topping it off with Seche Vite (or your favorite top coat) once the dots are completely dry.

If you try out this look be sure to drop me a line so I can showcase it on the next Hubby's Picks (or tag @mommydoeshernails on Instagram). For now (as promised) the reverse of my mug from the Hubby's Picks choices post.

Hope you all have a fantastic evening!!


  1. How pretty! I love any manicures with dots :)

    1. Dots are something I'm slowly becoming more comfortable with. Learning that not having them all lined up just exactly perfect has been a bit of struggle. Thanks so much!

  2. This is pretty, I love a good dotticure. I love the colours you chose :) xx

    1. I love the word dotticure! For some reason I've never heard of it. Thanks!
