Done Up In Dots

I love how this turned out.  I was heavily influenced by ABOP and her ability to create amazing manicures with simple dots.  She has such an eye for color and placement.
My main color is China Glaze Fast Track, it was rather sheer so I needed three coats to get it to the point showing here.  Still some visible nail line, but I can work with it. 
The accent nail is done with OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know? This one only took two coats.  It reminds me a lot of a rich chocolate milk, the kind you actually make with real chocolate not powder.  The kind that is so thick and delicious it's like drinking a chocolate bar.  YUM!
The Wooden Shoe Like to Know? showed up fine on it's own against the Fast Track but with Fast Track being as sheer as it is, it would have taken me forever to build it up enough to look good and then been a big bump, so I took one size smaller dotting tool than I wanted the finished look to have, and some white acrylic paint to create an opaque base, then I took the next size up of dotting tool and went over those with the Fast Track.  It worked out perfectly and I'm really pleased.
I hope you like this look,
