It all started with an awesome bargain find at Ulta. While checking their clearance area I found this awesome set of minis. While I am not necessarily a Kardashian “fan”, who can pass up cute polish at a great price! Not THIS gal <points at self>….
The set below contains mini versions of four colors:
My Empire… My Rules is a charcoal grey creme
Follow Me on Glitter is a gunmetal/charcoal grey glitter polish full of multicolored hex glitter
Khloé Had a Little Lam-Lam is a dark teal/forest green creme
Hard-Kourt Fashionista. is a deep brown with a bit of a red undertone. This is the one I am using in today’s manicure.
These colors are great for fall/winter, as they are dark, rich and very warm.

At first I was going to just do a manicure with the lighter accent nail and dots in the darker color. I’ve been playing around with dots a lot lately and figured it would look nice. I liked the way the accent nail looked so much that I decided to carry the dots throughout the manicure! It looks like my middle and ring fingers weren’t as dry as I thought, as you probably notice a bit of a smear in the dots. I still love this look, though, and I am sure I will be using it again.
Here is a shot with the wee little bottle of Hard-Kourt Fashionista.

Here is another shot with the Decades of Dysfunction bottle. This color seems to pop up a lot in my manicures. I think it’s my favorite of the Dark Shadows Collection from Orly. It’s not completely nude but it still goes well with a number of other colors.

That’s it for now. I hope you all enjoyed this design. What neat things have any of you done with your dotting tools? Let me know, I am always looking for new ways to work in dots!
Thanks for reading!
