Tutorial: Dotticure

Hi Lovelies! I thought I would share another tutorial today with you today. This is for a dotticure that I showed you a few months ago. I have been going through my mani archives and discovered a few tutorials that I never got around to putting together until now. I had even forgotten that I took photos for this dotticure tutorial so stumbling across it was a fun surprise.

Supplies Used:
Steps:


Instructions:
  1. Start out by painting your nail using a base color. I used Zoya Dot for this look
  2. Using white nail polish or acrylic paint and a dotting tool, place dots down the center of the nail starting near the cuticles and working down toward the tip. 
    • You can make all the dots the same size or alternate between larger and slightly smaller dots as I attempted.
  3. Add another row of dots on each side of the first row as show above. 
    • If you chose to alternate the size of the dots in your first row then create your 2nd and 3rd row by starting opposite to the first one to ensure that each large dot is surrounded by small ones and vise versa.
  4. Using your first color, add a smaller dot inside each of the white dots of the first row (that was created in step #2). I used Zoya Hudson for the lavender dots.
  5. Repeat step #4 with a second color in one of the 'empty' white rows. I used the minty green Zoya Dillon here.
  6. Repeat step #4 with the final color in the last white row. I used the sky blue Zoya Rebel
  7. Using a small dotting tool or toothpick and white nail polish or acrylic paint, add a zig-zag of dots in between 2 rows of larger dots.
  8. Repeat #7 to create a zig-zag of dots between the remaining rows.
  9. Seal with a top coat and enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Please don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any! 
As always, I would love to know what you think of this tutorial.
