Re-did my nails tonight. Let me know what you think:

So the steps:
Clean, buff, base coat.
The 2 coats of pink a tip:

With a toothpick, add a couple decent sized dots:

Then black ones:

Then some little white and black dots:

Using your white liner, add a swoosh at the base:

Opposite swoosh with black:

Two coats of top coat and that's it!!

Darn, you beat me to the smart a$$ remarks department.

"Two coats of top coat and that's it!!"

I was going to add, "And three bottles of polish remover for the leg???"

It looks cool, though! I guess you will be wearing pants??? Really. A very nifty tute.

My legs didn't just get paint from my nails today.  I also made an acrylic piece for a swap thingy.  I don't bother with protective garments anymore.  I've just resigned myself to being covered in paint.

just a tip from a fellow nail artist, a double ball stylus embossing tool works very well for dots as well and they come in lots of different sizes.

Noted, and thank you.  I always says I'm going to get actual tools.  But then I'm like, meh, I have toothpicks.  I am FAR from a professional, lol.
