Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”


After choosing a color scheme, apply a base color of your choice, I used Express’ “Nice.”


With a few dotting tools and colors of your choice apply dots all over the nails. Apply larger and more concentrated dots toward the tips of the nails and smaller and more sparse dots towards the cuticles. I used a medium and small sized dotting tool and Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails in “Heart of Stone”, Sinful Colors’ “Thimbleberry” and “Pink Forever”, and Essie’s “Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Lo.”


After applying a few dots of each color go back in and add more towards the tips so there are less gaps if needed.


Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”


Your Dot Gradient Nails are finished!
