The evolution of nail art

Happy Saturday Everyone! I will have a VERY exciting announcement after the weekend, but for today I have some nail art for you, with pictures of the stages of how it happened, start to finish.

I started off with a base coat of Revlon Carbonite, (which I got from the lovely Stacy at Parlez-Vous Ongles) which is supposed to be a dupe for Chanel Graphite. I don't have graphite, but from the pics I have seen it's close enough for me.

First thing I did was add random black dots in varying sizes. I used Wet n Wild black creme, which is my favourite black ever!

After the black dots had dried a little bit, I went back over the black dots with Carbonite, making those dots a little smaller than the black dots, leaving a ring of black showing.

Then I went over them each again, using an even smaller dotting tool and Sally Hansen X-treme wear in White On.

And finally I added tiny white dots randomly in between the larger dots, just to accent it and finish the look.

Cute and easy.

Stay tuned for the announcement coming soon.

Thanks for looking!!
