First Manicure of 2014

My first Nail Art of 2014

Hello all :) Hope 2014 is treating you well so far.
After all the Halloween, Christmas and New Year nails designs, I was completely stumped with what to do for my first manicure of the new year. I wanted something special after all the blingy nails I had done! Now I have a few ideas in mind, just had to choose what order to do them in lol. So this is what I decided to do first..
It does go back to one I tried out last year, but only on a swatch nail, that was inspired by a design on a gift bag.

Started out by painting my nails with two coats of Kate Spade Nails Inc. in New York Noir, from the December Glamour magazine. My new go to black polish!

Then with a rainbow of acrylic paint and different size dotting tools I started what I knew would take me ages!!
Started with the bigger dots first, then smaller dots around them. In the gaps different coloured dots, then more dots in the bigger ones lol......lots of dots ha ha!!

A bit blurry, but wanted natural light with no camera flash.
I love them! My 9 year old said they look like aboriginal art, as she's been learning about it at school! I google imaged it and she was right :)
I'm happy with how my first 2014 manicure came out. What do you think? Would you try this?

Have a great weekend :)
