So, I did something kind of dumb. I had this amazing idea for a new nail post. I’d thought about it, deigned it, picked the colours and everything. In my head, it was all done. Super simple, chic, and undoubtedly pretty. I wrote the post before I’d even attempted it, that’s just how confident I was. So, all I needed to do was paint the nails. And there was my big boo boo. I’d done this whole thing, with nothing but a brief idea in my head. So, I’m pretty sure you can guess what happened next.
It didn’t take me long to decide how I wanted to decorate my nails. After my negative space nails, I fell in love with the ‘dotted’ look. From there, the idea for my net manicure was clear. Forget all the negative space, I’m gonna fill it all up with polka dots… EVERYWHERE!!
It’s a look that’s so easy and simple, that I don’t know how I didn’t think of it before. I remember when I was younger, polka dots were the first piece of ‘nail art’ that I ever tried. I think I did an awful brown / beige combo, and the dots were so messy that it was just a load of big splodges. It’s safe to say, it wasn’t a good look! But, I was so proud of myself, it was seriously a massive achievement for little old me. Now that I’m older, and am actually capable of painting nails, I decided to go for it, and remake it… Successfully!
