Hubby's Picks REVEALED (HP40)

After a rather startling discovery this morning that, somehow, the settings are over saturating my images I had to wait until after work to post Hubby's Picks. It's automatically "enhancing" my photos and I have to figure out where I go to make it stop.

DOTS! Loads of dots. Dot all the things! It was REALLY tempting to do a gradient, but too much of a give-me. I have a rather frustrating history with dots. I just can't do them the best. But I feel like this manicure turned out pretty happy.

Get the look:

  1. Lay down your base color. If you have a paler and not entirely opaque color chosen this is probably the best choice for the base. For mine all of my colors were pretty opaque so I went with Sinful Colors Anemone.
  2. Gather three sizes of dotting tools. I started with two rows of random bigger dots, two rows of medium dots, then a spattering of tiny dots towards the tip of the nail.
  3. Repeat with two more colors. 
  4. Top with top coat and enjoy!

 I really enjoyed this look, and feel far less apprehensive about dots at this point.
