Red and White Polka Dots for GOT Polish Challenge: Dots

Oh, the best laid schemes of mice and men… This week’s design isn’t what it started out as, but in the end is a simple polka dots pattern with a cheerfully bright, classic red. Simple, easy, quick – I wonder why I had planned to do anything else.

(Go to the bottom of the post to read more about the GOT Polish challenge.)

What I used:

Supplies for Red and White Polka Dot design by Shelly Najjar at Ten Tiny Paintings for GOT Polish Challenge: Dots

  • base coat (not shown)
  • Red Red (414) by Wet n Wild
  • white (unnamed, no number) by Kiss Colors (part of French mani kit)
  • 1 mm dotting tool
  • generic quick dry top coat (not shown)

What I did:

Step 1: Base coat, then 1-2 coats of red. For the accent nail, use 2-3 coats of white instead.

Step 2: Using the dotting tool, add polka dots evenly spaced over the nail, in opposite color of base color. Top coat and done.

The rules:

* the polish you use should be at least one year old

* if you haven’t been a polishaholic that long, you can use the oldest polishes you have

* the polish should be previously used, but if you’re stuck, you could free a yearling from Mount Untried

* you can use more than 1 polish as long as it fits the theme and the rules
