GOT Polish Challenge: Dots: gradient red and coral dots

It’s dots today in the Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge.

I was going to recreate my lovely dotted manicure that I did back last September and I pulled out some different colours to try out. But I couldn’t find a colour scheme that went well together at all.

Then I spied some Ciaté polishes in my untried drawer and toyed with doing the same sort of idea – largish dots, aligned squarely rather than offset – but with similar colours and in a gradient style.

And I love it! The polishes all come from 2012’s Mini Mani Month advent calendar and are: Dangerous Affair, the darkest colour, which I’ve used for the centre line of dots; Mistress, a bright tomato red; and Speed Dial, a coral colour.

The white base is Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

My dots are not very uniform and nowhere near as good as I did them before. That’ll teach me to do my manicures in a rush!
