NOTD - Children In Need 'Spotty' Manicure

I know that this is a bit late, but I wanted to show you my Children In Need manicure, that I wore yesterday.  We had a dress down day at work, where we had to wear something spotty and give money to Children In Need.  As I don't own anything with spots apart from one pair of socks, I decided to give myself a spotty manicure.

I started by using a French manicure tip colour as a base.  I'm not sure of the brand, just one I'd had knocking around for a while.  It needed two coats to get an opaque base, and it was a terrible, gloopy polish.  Nevermind, I was going to cover up my mistakes!

I then used Nails Inc polish in St Johns Wood and GOSH Gypsy Blue to dot my nails.  This was a little bit tricky, but I quite liked the effect.  It took a while to dry as some of the dots were quite thick.  I alternated the colours on each nail.  I didn't use any fancy tools, just the brush for dotting, hence the dots varied in size and thickness.

I had quite a lot of comments on my nails, including from random people in shops, as well as friends.  People were asking me where I had them done, which was quite a compliment!

This was a fun and relatively easy thing to do to my nails, and it was nice to do something a bit different, which had a purpose, for a good cause. 

Did you do anything special for Children In Need?

Thanks for reading!  xx
