*My 1st Time* Using a Dotting Tool!

Hello Readers,

Well, I finally picked up some dotting tools and had a little fun. I can definitely see how you can get precise little circles with a steady hand and a special technique. I noticed that when I dipped it in the polish 'puddle' every time the circle was more opaque and came out better. 

I used OPI's 'Alpine Snow' and 'What's with the cattitude?' and L'Oréal's ''Amazon's Flare'.

  • OPI 'Alpine Snow' - I hated the consistency; it was very goppy/sticky which made it hard to control. It was also hard to smooth it out as it streaked very easily. I used three coats for opacity. You can find this polish for under $6 on eBay all the way up to $12+, I believe you can still find this at Ulta as well.
  •  OPI 'What's with the Cattitude? - This is such a great color, it's not too bright and is almost a 'sky' blue. The application was typical of a pastel type, but it covered well with 3 coats. This polish can be found from around $10 - $15+, it's from the Shrek Collection.
  • L'Oréal 'Amazon's Flare' - This is a jelly hot pink that's airs on the cool side of pink. It's almost a neon, but not quite. I liked the application; the formula was easy to work with and I like L'Oréal's brush. You can get this at Rite Aid and anywhere else they sell L'Oréal products, it was $4.99 and totally worth it!

This was a fun look and I enjoyed playing around! I thought the colors worked well together too. The pink didn't work too well on the blue color since it's more of a sheer jelly formula.

What do you guys think? I hope you enjoyed the pics ^_^


Cheers,
Bridget
