Scattered Dot Mani: December’s NCC#1

December’s Nail Challenge Collaborative theme is Dots! I love a good dotticure, so I was definitely excited about this month’s theme. Then I realized I haven’t done many unique dotted manis in the past, so I really needed to brainstorm to up my game and make this month less boring for y’all!

So for my first dotticure of the month, I knew I wanted a dark base. My nails are shorter than they have been, and if you’ve been following me for a bit you know I love dark polish on nubs! Once I picked out my base color, I basically grabbed a bunch of random colors to work with. I was so glad they ended up working well!



Not quite a typical color combo, but I like how they look all together! ย I was kind of going for a gradient look with the dots all scattered towards the base and creeping up the nail in random colors and sizes. Lol,ย really I was just randomly blobbing on random polishes! Let’s not pretend I had rhyme or reason here!

Polishes used:

  • Base color: Zoya Ryan… a beaaautiful deep navy with hints of teal. This is my absolute favorite dark blue polish!
  • Dotted colors:
    • Julepย Eliana… a dark grey-toned navy creme
    • OPI Cajun Shrimp… a gorgeous bright coral-toned red with some hints of pink
    • Julep Saaya… a bright peach with golden shimmer – this looks awful on its own on my skin tone, but it’s nice for nail art!
    • Essie Play Date… a perfect bright purple

So what do you think? Do you like this color combo? What’s an unexpected color combo that you like?

    Nice dotticure this is! I like the colors to it a lot. I haven’t started on this month’s theme yet but I will once I finish my last exam this week. I have a lot of stuff to catch up on.

      Thank you so much!! I always have to take a bit of time to get used to a new nail shape/ length, but I’m really liking the slightly shorter rounded ones ๐Ÿ™‚
