Orange and White Polka Dot Nails

Orange and white polka dot dotticure nails by @unitedinbeauty

I don't know about where you all are, but here in Ohio the weather we are experiencing right now can best be described in two words : Drab and Blech! I might not be able to control the weather outside, but I definitely can make it feel like summer on my nails with some bright, cheerful colors! This dotticure certainly perked up my mood today, I love this fab bright orange so much!

- Polishes  Used -
  •  Zoya - Arizona and Purity
  • Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat
- Extras - 
  • Dotting Tools
Step 1: Begin by applying 2 coats of Arizona by Zoya ( or Purity for the ring finger accent nail) and allow to dry completely. 
Step 2: Once dry, use a medium sized dotting tool to create polka dots in the opposite color. To get perfectly round and even sized dots, you will want to dip the end of your dotting tool into the polish after each dot. For best results, use a light hand and just dab the end to your nails. PRO TIP: You can also use a bobby pin or the end of a makeup brush in a pinch if you do not have dotting tools!
Step 3: Allow your dots to dry completely in order to avoid smearing, then apply a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat. Typically, Seche Vite is to be applied while the polish is still slightly wet, but in this case your dots will smear if you do not let them dry fully.
Step 4: Kick back and enjoy your new dotted manicure!

What do you guys think, is this one a hit or a miss for you? How's the weather in your neck of the woods?
