Green, Gold, and Black Dotticure!

there are things in your life that you will always return to....

Liz says…


Tried and true favorites make me happy – from a beloved TV show (the fiance and I are currently marathoning Stargate SG1), a favorite soda (Fresca all the way), or a much-loved stuffed animal (Cooney The Tail-less Raccoon… don’t laugh at the name, I was very young and not terribly imaginative with naming conventions) there are things in your life that you will always return to.


When it comes to manicures, dotticures are my personal tried and true favorites. Using my handy tools I can take different polishes and effortlessly create works of art within minutes. Like the best recipes, this is a ridiculously simple technique with a surprisingly impressive final product. Anyone can do it, and I always encourage my friends that are newly introduced to nail art to try their hand at a dotticure.


Today’s look came together after a quick looting of my stash. Without a plan I laid down the green base color and started dotting to my heart’s content. The end result reminds me of toads… which might sound strange to you, but I think it’s FAB. What do you think of my elegant toad manicure? Most importantly, do you see the whole toad thing or have I lost my mind? Let me know!

    Very pretty, clean look. I love the colour combination. Actually some of those larger gold dots remind me of Pac-Man! Or outer space 🙂

      I love that you’re Pac-Man and/or outer space… perhaps… Pac-Man IN outer space?! Love it!

    I love it. I don’t see toads but my imagination isn’t fully awake at the moment.

      Thanks, Marcia! 😀 I think I’m the only one that sees toads so don’t worry about your imagination not being awake. I think I might just be a little weird. lol
