Bold Dotticure with Glam Polish Hairspray Collection

Hi guys! We interrupt this week of Digit-al Dozen nail art for.. well, more nail art! (I don't know about you guys, but I'm starting to miss swatching! Don't worry though, I've got a ton of swatches to show you guys soon.) The lovely Cristine of Simply Nailogical and I decided to come up with a "bestie twin" manicure using our gorgeous new Glam Polish Hairspray polishes!

And here is what we came up with! To achieve this look, I started with a base of Cuccio 2am in Hollywood, and once that was dry, I dotted on an X with Glam Polish Ladies Choice, Glam Polish Big Blonde & Beautiful, and Glam Polish Hey Mama, randomly on my nails. Then I outlined those dots with more dots, in varying colors! I topped everything off with matte top coat.

The more I do dotticures, the more I'm finding myself liking them! I guess it's true what they say about practice - because I definitely see improvement, although my dots are still not perfect.

I also really loved the look of this nail art with glossy top coat:

With glossy top coat, you get to see all the fun holo shimmer in these gorgeous polishes! (And of course, you can see full swatches here.) I honestly can't decide which way I prefer it - how about you?

I definitely love the contrast between the black creme and the shimmery Glam Polishes (not unlike my recent mermaid dotticure!). I should start mixing finishes more!

Here are the polishes I used. The Cuccio Colour polish is from HB Beauty Bar - don't forget to use the discount code POLISHCHALLENGE at checkout for 15% off your order - and the Glam Polish shades are available on their online shop.

Make sure you check out Cristine's version of this manicure too!

  1. Awesome dotticure this is! Love how the colors pop against the black and it looks great either way.

  2. Beautiful mani. It almost looks 'chalkboard' when it's in the matte.

  3. So cool! I prefer it glossy but I prefer pretty much everything glossy, lol.

  4. That turned out beautiful! You have great control over the dots.

  5. You ladies had so much patience, I would go nuts trying to do this!

  6. Absolutely stunning!!! The dots are perfectly even and well placed!
