Today I have a super simple dotticure for the 11th day of the 31 day color challenge being hosted by Chalkboard Nails. I will not be doing a YouTube tutorial for this look since it is so simple but I will link the 15 second Instagram tutorial here when it is available.

I went with red, black, and white today because we are going to watch my niece sing at the local football game today! As luck would have it my sister-in-law will be twirling for the opposing team which just so happens to be my hometown….whose colors are also red, black, and white!

Zoya Pepper at 2 coats

For my base color I laid down 2 coats of Pepper by Zoya which has been in my untrieds for way too long! Pepper is a deep rich vampy red with a touch of brown in it, so Autumn appropriate!

Next I used black and white acrylic paint and a dotting tool and alternated dot colors across my middle and ring fingernails. I let them dry for just a bit and then topcoated with Flash Dry by Bohemian Polish.

I recently purchased the matte topcoat made by Bow from Dance Legend during Llarowe’s last sale, and oh. My. Gosh!! It is such an amazing, velvety matte topcoat!
