Mani Monday – stripes to dots

The colours of today’s mani were inspired by this striped paper. I finally had time to sit and do my nails without being rushed to go somewhere and wished I had a nail art brush so that I could have tried to paint stripes on my nails. I probably could have used some tape but didn’t think of that at the time. Instead I tried out this Essence nail art tool I’ve had for ages and have never even tried out. I didn’t realise how easy it is to put dots on your nails! I can’t believe it has taken me this long to use the tool. My biggest problem is I never have enough time to sit and try new things with my nails. I can’t wait to try it out some more and do patterns on my nails next time. I also felt like some glitter so 2 nails on my right hand have glitter on them.
