Dotticure Guest Post from Lucy's Stash!

Hey everyone! I've been revising all day so it's nice to have a break for a bit, although if you follow me on Instagram you'll know that I may have got distracted from revision earlier and painted my nails, but unfortunately I don't have my lightbox at the moment so I can't take a proper picture! My last exam is tomorrow and I am so so excited to be free for 2 weeks, but until I can am properly finished, and until my lightbox returns on friday, the lovely Lucy from Lucy's Stash has kindly done a guest post for me, and I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do! I was lucky enough to share a hotel room with Lucy before/after the Cosmo blog awards and she's such a lovely person, and amazing at nail art, so I'm honoured to have her here today!

Hi everyone,

I’m so excited to be guest posting for Alice! Not only she is a freaking Cosmo Blog Award winner but I’ve also had a chance to hang out with her in person she is such a lovely person.

I have prepared a dotticure for you that I hope you’ll think is very intricate but to tell you the truth, it’s dead simple to do. Just start with two big dots on the opposite side of the nail and then create small dots around it in opposite colour. Then continue on both circles alternating the colours until they ‘meet’. Continue creating the dot circles in alternating colours until you fill the whole nail. Once you’re done let the design dry for few minutes and topcoat it.





  
For this manicure I have used two coats of SpaRitual Breathless (light pink jelly) for the base and then Imaginarium (neon pink shimmer) and Crystal Waters (turquoise blue shimmer) for the dots.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this manicure and feel free to stop by Lucy’s Stash and check out more nail art and tutorials! Love, Lucie x

  3. The regularity of this pattern is amazing and the colours work so well for this. It looks sort of like a tribal pattern!

    1. Thank you very much Laura :) Well for me it's important to have my hand in an angle where I can see where I'm putting the dots. Then it's just the case of being consistent in the size of the dots ie. dip, one or two dots, dip, one or two dots, dip etc. I will be doing a video tutorial on a dotticure in early February
