Black and White Polka Dot Nails

Hey Everyone, 

After having my nails painted by Essie's lead nail artist, Rita Remark, earlier this week (check out the silhouette manicure she gave me here), I was inspired to try another nail art look. So, when I went to get my acrylic nails filled yesterday, I brought along essence's 'Nail Art Duo Stylist' nail dotting tool, and asked the lady who does my nails for a graphic black and white polka dot print. 

The result, in my opinion is pretty awesome. Using O.P.I's 'Onyx', a gorgeous. high-shine black polish, as a base, my nail lady used Sally Hansen's 'White On', a creamy white polish and the 'Nail Art Duo Stylist' to create various sized dots on my nails. 

While, I personally am not the best when it comes to doing my own nails (I am lucky if I can paint them), the dotting tool is actually quite easy to use (dip the end of the tool into your desired polish, and then dot it on your nail), and I definitely think I would be able to give myself a similar looking manicure. 

Do you like the look of my black and white polka dot nails? Have you used a dotting tool before? What are some of your favourite nail art looks? Any you suggest I try next? Be sure to let me know in the comment section below.

    I've never used the dotting tool, my hands are too unsteady :(
    but I think you've done a fantastic job!
