Digit-al Dozen Dotting Days - Literary Lacquers Aunt Beast

Hi Goddesses

Today’s dotting post is a variation of a mani I’ve done many times.  I’ve always liked mixing my dot sizes, but today, a couple of them are JUMBO!!!

Firstly, I love the colour scheme of this mani.  It’s so neutral and soothing, with that little extra bit of hhhhmmm in that taupey polish.

So, what IS that taupey polish?  Well, it’s one of the new Literary Lacquers, and quite genius it is too.  It’s called Aunt Beast and it’s from the new Wrinkle In Time Collection, and here I've paired it with the classic OPI My Vampire Is Buff.

What I love most about it is the little bits of particle in it – it’s not a smooth polish, it has life and texture and oomph.

So how did I do my jumbo dots?   Well in this mani they were done with the eraser on the end of a pencil and the end of a Berol pen.  The dotting is gloopier for using flat surfaces, but not impossible to manage.

Check back soon to see how I took this mani one step further, and don’t forget to check out my other lovely DD gals.
