Tri Polish Challenge January #4 - Thermal dotticure

Hello everyone! Today is the final Tri Polish mani for January using the colours yellow, orange and red. I've gone for a simple dotticure, but graduated the size of the dots in opposite directions. It reminds me a bit of the colours on weather maps, which explains the title in the hope of making it sound slightly less random!

I started with two coats of Nail Essentials SIlver Shimmer and then added the dots using Models Own Lemon Meringue, Barry M Gelly Paints Mango and Blood Orange. I finished with Seche Vite - simple!

I'm glad I accidentally discovered the graduated dots - I had originally planned on the dots being a lot more uniform, but I like it so I'll definitely be doing it again!

So, next month out TPC colours are brown, pink and grey. I already have some of these ready as I loved the idea of putting these colours together :) Check out all the other Tri Polish manis following the links below and I will be back with you soon!

  1. Ala!! me ha gustado mucho el resultado, el color de base es precioso.
    Los puntos es super dificil hacerlos iguales, a mi tambiƩn se me resiste pero ha quedado muy bien!

  2. This dotticure looks great and works so well with the silver base! I think the graduated dots look great! :)

  3. Haha I read that and immediately thought of Bob Ross and his happy little accidents...I LOVE the dots in different sizes, I think it really makes the manicure more interesting and dimensional.
