Day Thirty : Inspired by a Tutorial

There are soooo many good tutorials out there for nail art but one person stood out the most for me and that's Kayla from Kaylashevonne.com - her art AND nails are always so prefect. The Retro Polka Dot manicure amazes me; how does one make it look so flat, smooth but still look like dots with all those dollop of polishes on top?  Kayla can in her tutorial.

I had none of the polishes that she recommended and the green that I had to substitute with did not like Skull & Glossbones AT ALL. (Also I thought my right hand may like at least one photo in this challenge, probably sick of Lefty taking up all the spotlight)

Here's what I used:
  • O.P.I: Skull & Glossbones
  • Models Own: Mushroom
  • Kleancolour: Metallic Green
  • O.P.I: No Spain, No Gain 
  • Born Pretty: Dotting Tools
