31DC2013 Day 11 - Polka Dots

Day 11 of the 31 Day Nail Challenge calls for a polka dot manicure. I decided to try another technique that I've been wanting to try for a long time and that is interlocking using dots. It is quite simple, but I love the look of it...

For this manicure I started out with a base of OPI Dining al Frisco, a pretty metallic light blue. When it was dry, I sectioned off the nails using scotch tape and painted either the top or bottom portion with OPI Keeping Suzi at Bay, in an alternating pattern. I will have swatches of both of them for your viewing pleasure when I return from vacay. After all was dry, I then added the dots...

P.S. Sorry for the lobster hands here, blogger is messing with me...

What do you think of this? Have you tried the fun interlocking pattern before?

P.S. This post is pre-scheduled while I'm on vacation. I may not be able to respond to comments until I return, but I greatly appreciate them and will respond as soon as I return!

Thanks for looking!

  1. You just 'blue' my mind! I've never seen this before. I love it!!

  2. I tried this method a while back:

    So easy and delivers really impressive results! Yours is great of course!

  3. Beautiful! I need to try this soon!

  4. I really love this! I tried something similar once (except both colours were dotted with the opposite colour) but I didn't manage to interlock them so perfectly, it looks amazing!

  5. I really love this way of using dots, I'll try soon

  6. Thank you so much everyone! I had fun with this technique and hopefully will be trying it again soon! So many colors to play with :)

    @Emiline Harris, LOL! I'm glad you like it! You should give it a try :D

    @Alison Fisher, your manicure is beautiful!

    @yaelsn, thank you! :)

    @laura z. and @Nina, definitely give it a try!

    @paintedfingertips, I was tempted to dot both sides, but decided to stop for once :D
