The tri-polish challenge day 16 : Retro dotted mani

Hello my dears! How are you doing? Today is the last mani for the Tri-polish challenge of June using pink, purple and red. By the time I did this mani, I was lacking in inspiration (as usual for the fourth mani with the same colours, lol) and I took my inspiration from a post on the mythic blogger All laquered up, while she was featuring a nail art inspired on My awesome beauty: so this is a Retro dotted mani!!

To achieve this look I first painted all my nails with Essence lilac is my style, then using striping tape I painted a wide stripe in the center of the nail using Bourjois peach and love, and a thin white stripe using NYX ink in white. Then I placed the dots: three white dots down the white line, and three purple concentric dots over the white ones. Then two purple dots to each side of the pink wide stripe and two white concentric dots over the purple ones. It sounds more difficult than it really is!

I loved the idea, and you can find a quick tutorial on Michelle's blog. I like the final result a lot! What do you think about it? does it look "retro" to you?
I hope you've enjoyed this month tri-polish challenge, I've certainly have! and do not forget to pay a visit to all the fantastic participants listed below.

  1. I really loved this and I've saved it to my inspiration map! :D I think the pattern feels very retro but maybe another color combination would have made the nails even more retro?! :D
