A Dotted Border Mani

"Border" or "Framed" Manis are becoming quite popular, so I decided to give one a try..

I like this concept and I really like using dots as my border since I don't think I could create a regular border quite as neat (check out how neat this one is from Sarah at Chalkboard Nails!).  For this mani, I started with two coats of OPI Skull and Glossbones, followed by a coat of Northern Lights by Out The Door.  After everything dried, I used a dotting tool and applied Orly Snowcone, Orly Basket Case and Orly Green Apple.  As much as I want to like Skull and Glossbones, I just do NOT like it on me.. it makes my skin look dead.. blah.

Happy Weekend, Kids!!
