I gave dots a try. They were obviously really easy to do, and I think they looked cute in real life! I used Essie Better Together for my base, 3 coats. And for the dots I used, Revlon Coral Me Wild, Essence Choose Me, and L.A Girls Fairytale.
And Essie Better Together on it's own. I really really really loved this soft jelly pink. After 2 coats it still wasn't opaque, but I actually liked seeing my nail line!!
