Zoya Dot Manicure Four Ways

Today I’ve got yet another dot manicure for ya, this time featuring four Zoya cremes.

Just be prepared for more because I am trying to perfect my dots before moving onto more challenging nail art! Also, I just ordered a 5-piece dotting tool set from Trans Design so… ;)

Anyway this time I wanted to try some kind of muted tones of beige and green/grey. Also this time to change it up I put the dots not on the tip, but around the cuticle area and going up the sides.


Zoya Farah, Bevin, Evvie, Noot

Zoya Dot Mani with Farah

I used Farah as the base here and then added Bevin, Evvie and Noot in different sizes and places. I realized that there really isn’t much of a difference between Evvie and Noot in this situation though. Only in certain lighting can you tell Noot is darker. Ah well, live and learn.

Something else I learned was wait until the dots are dry for at least 2-3 minutes before applying a top coat! As you can see on my middle finger, I slightly smudged some of them because I didn’t wait long enough.

And that folks is the #1 issue with me and nail art in general. I loathe waiting for polish to dry!

Anyway despite that mishap I like the way these shades all look together. I don’t know why but it reminds me of the 1960’s somehow. :)

Hope you liked it!

    Very cute! I love dot manicures! Unfortunately now I know there is a 5 piece set out there somewhere ( am not going to look! LOL) so my dotting tool with 2 sizes may no longer measure up!

    I’m a long time reader of your blog, and I’m in school right now trying to pass time, so I was looking through your random old posts and saw that you were in Huntsville, AND I LIVE IN HUNTSVILLE. Little things like that always shock me so much! We have a Sephora now, too, in case that tempts you to come back here anytime soon, haha xD

    Kelly, I love it! This manicure is great, not only the colours play perfectly together, but the dots create a wonderful effect! Seems bubbling fizzy drink… and very 60’s as well.
    I’ve pinned it!

    I think the dots are really cute! I like the colors and the placement. It’s almost enough to tempt me to do nail art myself…

    So cute! This made me realize – Farah is the perfect base for all sorts of nail art and glitter. Now that you mention it, I kinda do see the 1960s vibe, I can imagine the Great Gatsby having a room decorated with these colors or something

    Looks lovely! I get that 60s vibe too. I’d actually try to replicate it if I had the patience for nail art haha

    This is one terrific looking manicure, Kelly! The colors go so well together and the shades compliment your skin tone. Very professional looking, actually. And cute as hell, too!

    I agree with you on the ’60’s vibes. I was going to mention it has a retro feel! Very awesome on the manicure!!
