Fall into Autumn: Day 11 - Autumn Dots

Hey guys! Happy Saturday :D I have yesterday and today off and I am most definitely taking advantage of the time off to catch up on swatches, cleaning, and resting. Work has been stressful lately :/

Today I've got another Fall into Autumn post for you. The challenge is coming to a close and even though it's been really fun, I've gotta say I'll be glad when I can kick back a bit. I'm gonna lay off challenges for a while after this so I can get back into doing my own thing day to day. :]
Anyway, today's post is Autumn Dots. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do with the dots so I just did a bit of everything. I get excited when I get a chance to pull out my trusty dotting tool, so I did a mix of designs. I used Essie Yogaga for the base and the colors of the dots are Butter London Wallis, Pillar Box Red, & West End Wonderland, Milani Jiffy Orange & Signature Gold, and SH Insta-Dri Lightening. I topped with 2 coats of HK Girl - really not sure why these photos came out looking so mattified! They are not at all. Must be my lighting or something.

So what do you think of my dots?? I think I'm getting better with using the dotting tool :) I am LOVING Yogaga, definitely my new favorite nude. My accent nail turned out a bit Christmasy, but I still like it. And I think Wallis is the perfect fall color. Overall, I'm really happy with this look!
Have a great weekend everyone <3
