I finally got a set of different sized dotting tools, so I was able to do a good interlocking dots mani. You can find other objects to use, such as the top of a sewing pin, but I wanted the dotting tools anyway. I saw this great tutorial from I Feel Polished and then I saw a lot of interlocking dot manis on reddit. I think I did pretty good for a first attempt, I just got some bubbles and the dots aren’t all perfectly round. I let my son pick the colors; he chose Zoya’s Giovanna and Suri. I think next time I’ll pick two colors that are a lot different in tone for more contrast. Both these colors are very shimmery jewel tones. I thought adding a matte top coat would look a lot better, so on the left you’ll see the mani without the top coat and the right is with it. Also, please excuse the shortness of my nails. I had to cut them down after a couple breaks.
