Guest post: Gradient dots nail art

Hello everyone!

I'm Kizzy and I have a little nail art blog. When Niki asked me if I wanted to do a blog post swap I was so excited! I've never done one before and after some deliberation of what I would do settled on some really pretty but easy to do gradient dots that anyone can do even if you've never done any nail art before :)

I painted my nails with 2 coats of Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream. Then I used a dotting tool and Rimmel Blue Vogue, Barry M Cobalt Blue and Barry M White for the dots. I got the dots on my ring finger by mixing a bit of Barry M Cobalt Blue and Barry M White. If you don’t have a dotting tool you can find loads of things around the house to make dots such as bobby pins or a pencil which work really well! I usually take a drop of polish, put it on a sheet of plastic, dip the dotting tool in it and then dot the polish on my nail.

I really like the gradient on my thumb! I think it's my favourite nail :)

Let me know what you think and thank you again to Niki for letting me post on her blog for the day! Make sure you take a look at my blog to see what Niki posted!

  1. Love them. My favourites are your little finger, middle finger and thumb. The gradient thumb is definitely the winner!

    1. Thank you! Yep the thumb is definitely my favourite! :)

  2. They look amazing! I so wish I had the time a patience to paint my nails! Children certainly change things!

    1. Thank you! They are really quick to do - took me about 15 mins to do both hands :)
