The Dotting Tool contest at Chalkboard Nails

Sarah at Chalkboard Nails is hosting a contest. The Dotting Tool contest here!

The rules were simple:

  • Only one entry per person, please.
  • You must do these designs on your own nails.
  • Your design must use a dotting tool of some kind.
  • You can use the brush that comes with your polish to aid in your design.
  • Stamping is discouraged but not prohibited. I really want this to be about the dotting tool and its possibilities!
  • You may not use acrylic paint for your design.
  • You may not use nail art brushes for your design.
  • Your design does not have to be a new design.
  • You must submit your designs through the Inlinkz tool at the end of this post between now and Monday, March 5th. 
  • This contest is open internationally, excluding Italy (Llarowe does not ship there).

So Here is my entry! Wish me luck!

I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Wild Orchid as my base
Dotting colors were: Finger Paints paper mache
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Pronto Purple
American Apparel Nail Lacquer L'Esprit
And topped it off with Out the Door fast drying top coat 


  1. This is really cool with all swirl-like dimensions! My favorite of the entries so far :)

    1. Thanks so much! ... your comment was officially my first since starting this blog :)

  2. I really love this design! I may have to steal it for a future mani. I'll make sure to link back to you. ^_^

    1. As long as you link... steal away! :)

  3. This is one of my favourite manis in the contest. I just love the way you put it together. This is why I didn't even try to go for dots - I have no creativity or sense of color and placement for things like this. You did great!

    1. I use google to inspire me on most days :) You just have to keep your eyes open for inspiration, you can find it anywhere! Thanks so much for the lovely compliment too!

  4. luv the design but where did u get your dotting tools!?

    1. On eBay, set of 5 double ended. They are great :)
