Dotting Tool-torial

After a week of inspiration, I think you are probably ready for a wrap up, and some more ideas for what to do with your dotting tool.

First, if you don't have a dotting tool yet, might I recommend this set from Born Pretty Store:

5x 2 way Pink DOTTING Pen Marbleizing Tool Nail Art Dot

This set has different sizes, which can be used to create even more designs.  Here are some other designs you can make with your dotting tools:
A heart is just two dots side by side and then dragged together to a point.  Cherries are similar, we just put two dots side by side and then using an alternate color, you can use your tool to draw the stems.  Using three dots, you can make a little mickey mouse, or teddy bear.  Dotting tool is also great for making eyes.  With the tool set above, you can use the big end of the tool for the white of the eye, and then the small end for the little black pupils. 

For even more dotting tool inspiration, check out some of my favorite manicures from the past:

Hope you've enjoyed this week of dotting tool nails.  I hope you've gotten some inspiration and courage to try a dotting tool out if you haven't gotten one yet, or maybe try some new designs with the one you have!
