Blue & gold on white, contest entry

I'm going to enter this manicure in the "The dotting tool" contest on Chalkboard Nails...
Denne manicure deltager i "The dotting tool" konkurrencen på Chalkboard Nails...

This manicure was "born" in my mind just like my unplugged nail art. There are however significant differences, since I only used nail polishes and dotting tools, neither acrylics nor brushes...
I still cannot get the "Flowers from Indigo Ocean" out of my head, so I went for the same blue, that resemblances the color that Royal Copenhagen use for their china.
The base color is 2 coats of OPI Alpine Snow over my ridge filler, and I used 2 different dotting tools when I applied the blue Nubar Indigo Ocean and a little gold with Orly Glitz & Glamour. The top coat is Seche Vite.
Do you like it, be honest?
Dette design blev "født" in min fantasi ligesom min serie af unplugged nail art. Men der er nogle store forskelle, idet jeg kun brugte neglelakker og dotting tools, ikke hverken acrylfarve eller pensel...
Da jeg stadig ikke kan få mine "Flowers from Indigo Ocean" ud af hovedet, gik jeg efter den samme blå farve, der minder mig om udsmykningen på Royal Copenhagens stel.
Grundfarven er 2 lag OPI Alpine Snow over en ridge filler base coat, og jeg brugte to forskellige dotting tools da jeg påførte den blå Nubar Indigo Ocean og guldfarven, Orly Glitz & Glamour. Toplakken er Seche Vite.
Kan du li' det - vær ærlig?

    1. Thank you Samantha, I'm so glad you like it - and yes it is amazing, what you can do with a dotting tool. I remember the first time I tried making simple dots 5 months ago, pressing way too hard I made big dents in the polish below :)

  16. Yes, I remember your entry for the dotting tool contest, I liked it and as I followed the contest day by day I also made a list of my favourite entries and your entry was among them.
    By the way, what do you think about the winners? I agree with the first place, I liked Goose's "Color blind test", but for the second and third place I had other favourites..
    Anyway, we played a little bit and it was a good opportunity for our blogs to be seen by other bloggers :-)

  17. I think it is beautiful. I love the blue on white china patterns, all of them, especially the Dutch flower style.

    The gold dots make it even prettier.
