10 Day Challenge -- Day 6

Who doesn't love a dotticure?  I think this is one of my favourite type of nail art because it's so easy and there are so many combinations!  And that's what Day 6 is all about :D

Let's check out all the entries :)

Erica's Nails and More Day 6 entry:
I have wanted to try this look since I did my first double polka dot manicure. I used Jordana Black, L'Oréal I Will!, China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and Under the Boardwalk, Essie Mezmerize and a couple dots of Julep Hayden. I love this and will definitely be sporting this more often ;)

April Boulware Day 6 entry:
The base is Zoya Song and the silver is Essie No Place Like Chrome.
dreamyMM Nails & Make Up Day 6 entry:
Everything in this world starts and ends with a DOT...DOT...DOT
So, today I am inspired by my Brother who is a Chemical Engineer... (Love you John) and instead of making what I first had in mind "Vintage Polka Dots" (I will make it some other day) I made my... "Chemical Nails" with White Nail Polish as Base and Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Mint, Orange, Black and White Acrylic Paint Colours.
Erin Fleming Day 6 entry:
Turns out I've committed nail art fraud! I don't possess a dotting tool! So I stamped my dots using a Konad plate.....
I used a base of Zoya Myrta and the dots are A-England Tristam. It's too bad Tristam wasn't more opaque, but I do like the end result!
Lustrous Lacquer Day 6 entry:
This didnt turn out exactly how I wanted it to but I still like it. I originally wanted the dots to look like they curved towards the sides of my nails but practice makes perfect I guess. I was going for a fall feel with my colors. I used Sinful Colors Slate as my base coat and then added dots from China Glaze Foie Gras, Desert Sun, Camisole and, Kalahari Kiss.
Muffin Nails Day 6 entry:
Here are my polka dots! I decided to incorporate my favorite colors (yet again) to make this design. I used Sinful Colors Boom Boom, Essie Mojito Madness, and Sally Hansen Sun Kissed, as well as Essie Sand Trapez for the tan base. I tried to switch things up and make little rings instead of normal polka dots, as well as placing them on the nail randomly.
Painted Nubbs Day 6 entry:
Not exactly what I was hoping for, but I still like it. The base is Julep Jessica (favorite light blue EVER!) and the dots are Zoya Arizona and Pure Ice Superstar.
FingerFood Nails Day 6 entry:
I like the irregular "bubbly" effect so picked up some of my favourite colours and went dotty! The base is Maybelline Lilac Frost and the dots are Color Club Pucci-licious and Yell-Oh!, Collection 2000 Electric Dreams and NYC High Line Green.
Sandra Bickel Day 6 entry:
I LOVE THIS LOOK! I needed to give my fingernails a break, so I did my toes! I hope that is okay. I think I have cute toes. :D I used Julep Isla for a base colour (for that touch of shimmer). Random Dots made with L.A. Color Daisy, Electra, Mint, Aquatic, Absolute, and SPAT!
Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Lacquer Day 6 entry:
My boyfriend picked out the colors for today's polka dot manicure! I think he was trying to pick something he thought I wouldn't like, but I actually love it! I used a LA Colors Static Electricity as the base color and then used small dotting tool to put on the pink and orange polka dots. The orange is LA Colors Tangerine and the pink is Julep Mandy.
See Jodi Polish Day 6 entry:
Day 6! Wow, time sure flies when you're having fun. I love doing dotticures... there are so many options. The polishes used for this dotticure are Pink: Island Girl's Big Island Magic (its a gorgeous bubble gum pink), Brown: Jessica's Glamorous Gladiator (a medium brown with fine micro gold glitter, a perfect shade for fall), and White: Julep's Kate (my "go to" white shade).
Sparkle and Shine Nails Day 6 entry:
I wanted to go for big dots this time, so I used a q-tip for the black. It's China Glaze CG in the City with Sally Hansen Black Out dots :-D
Amber Nolan Day 6 entry:
Polka dots! This very much reminds me of studded leather. smile I used Hard Candy Wicked for the whole nail with Julep Sienna for the dots! Love this look!
No Naked Nails Day 6 entry:
Day 6 Dot-icure......This was a quick one. Almost forgot about it!! Turned out okay though I guess. Colors I used: LA Colors Live, Wet n Wild 9021Orange, Buffy the Violet Slayer and The Wonder Yellows.
Samantha Dobba Day 6 entry:
Owen wanted to help me with writing this blog this morning.  But then he got bored and decided to have a nap instead ;)


  1. I love your dotticure and all the colors you used - very nice :)

    1. Thanks Nicole! I have wanted to do a neon-on-black dotticure since I did my first dotticure and got my first neon polish :D It turned out just how I pictured it!
