NOTD : Naked Dots

Hello again everybody ! So it got a bit too late to post my nails that I did last night after I finally finished painting them (got waaaay too sidetracked during the day to do them, whoops), so instead I'm posting them for you all this evening ! It's an idea I've had in my head for quite a while, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out !

I've been really enjoying seeing other people's nails leaving bare nail underneath designs, so I thought I'd give it a go, seeing as my nails were looking all pristine last night since I cut them down quite short the other day ! I don't think you can actually see very much bare nail, unless you look really close up, but I think the general effect of the colours is really Spring-appropriate !

For this design, I started off with a thin coat of Champneys Nude, just to tone my natural nail a little bit, then using different sized dotting tools, I put on random dots using OPI Suzi's Hungary Again!, OPI Can't Find My Czechbook, OPI My Very First Knockwurst and Essie Mint Candy Apple. I really love how all the colours come together on this design, and how it just looks like a pastel blur from a distance !

Even though you can't actually see the nail very well under the dots, I really like the fact that my nail isn't completely covered, and that you can still see a tiny bit of nail line ! What do you think ? Do you prefer to have you nails completely covered or would you try leaving some nail visible for a design ?

I'm going to watch a bit of TV before I go to bed now, so I'll try and blog tomorrow (got a busy day, hopefully I'll be able to post something), if not Sunday ! Have a great Friday everyone !
