Indecisive with Colour

So i had a nail art nightmare this week, i genuinely could not pick what colours to use, so instead i picked ten instead of two! Now, with the manicure done i kind of wished i had kept it to two colours, but that's the joy of nail art for me, I'm constantly learning. But this is the design i ended up with!

So as usual i start by prepping my natural nails, sorting out my cuticles and then apply my blank false nails.

I then cut them down and file them into a rounded square shape

I then painted them a nude colour from George in 82 Fortune Teller

Then with the first colour i added a single dot with a small/medium dotting tool.

Then with a long striping brush i drew half a circle around the dot

Then with the same dotting tool as before, i added  a row of dots outside that first line

Then with a super small detail brush, i added a scalloped edge around that line, don't worry if its not perfect as you can fix anything with a small orange stick and that same nude colour

I then repeated this on each nail and with a different colour each time

The ten colours i chose were

Left hand thumb to pinky: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Going Green, Rimmel Lasting Finish in 200 Orange Your Life, Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Plum Seduction, MUA Bold Blue and Manhatten Rock Topia in 6.

Right hand thumb to pinky: Rimmel Lasting Finish in 705 Tangy Tangerine, Rimmel 60 Seconds in 840 Blue Eyed Girl, Rimmel Lasting Finish in 045 Misty Jade, Astor Quick 'n' Go in 353, Rimmel 60 Seconds in 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria.

And this was the final look!

And that's this weeks design!
