‘Dots & Stripes’ nail design

This is my first time at ‘FingerFood’s Theme Buffet’ and this weeks theme is ‘dots & stripes’ 🙂 ! Here are the two nail polishes I chose for this nail design:

Bold Blue & Pistachio Ice Cream

Bold Blue & Pistachio Ice Cream

They are by MUA and one is called ‘Bold Blue’ and the other is called ‘Pistachio Ice Cream’ – the best thing about these nail polishes is that they were only £1 from Superdrug! I saw someone recommending these on another blog and decided I just had to get some! (I did comment on the persons blog who recommended these, so if it’s you then let me know and I will link to you 🙂 )!

On with the design…

MUA-dots-and-stripes-nail-art-designI started by painting over the nails with ‘Bold Blue’ (two coats) and once dry I applied metallic silver striping tape diagonally across. I then took my dotting tool and created some dots above the lines using ‘Pistachio Ice Cream’ and finished (once dry) with a Sally Hansen top coat.

I loved these nails, the MUA colours were gorgeous and so shiny! What do you think? Has anyone tried any different MUA colours?
