FingerFood's Theme Buffet #10: Dots and stripes

Finally posting this week! I've been working really hard on my next polish collection (and posting previews on my Facebook page) and I think you guys are really going to like it!

Today I got around to this week's FingerFood challenge. The theme this week is dots and stripes. I cheated slightly by making my dots into stripes!


I love this mani because it's pretty minimalist in terms of color, but still interesting to look at. I started with a gradient of Zoya Bevin and Julep Roc Solid, then mattified it with Revlon matte top coat. Finally I added alternating lines of dots using the same two polishes. In real life the dots fade even more into the ends of the gradient and it looks really cool!

Check out the rest of this week's manis!

  3. This is awesome! The dots pop so nicely against the matte gradient. Mmmmm... texture....
    For some reason it makes me think of leather. I just bought a green leather wallet though, so maybe that's it. :\

    1. No, it definitely reminds me of leather too! Maybe because the dots look like studs?

  5. I don't think that's cheating at all! Stripes don't HAVE to be of lines. They could be anything :) I think that's just clever thinking :) And really great look too! Great color combo!
