Mani with rivets


Hi everyone! For this post I have a mani with rivets. The idea for this design actually came from my dad and I thought it sounded interesting as a design. As you can see the pattern is very stylized. I like that it looks a bit mechanic though I don't think the pattern really looks like rivets, maybe more like a domino game, haha. I used Color Club Where's The Soiree? as base color, the version I have dries with a satin finish, but I kind of like that. And I used China Glaze Millenium for the rivet-pattern, which is made with a brush and dotting tool from Born Pretty.
So what are your thoughts on this look and would you wear it? Good night :)

  9. Thank you all for the feedback, you're awesome!

    @Beauty Addict: Dotting tools are great! Though I still need some more practive to get all the dots even. And you should really get Millenium, it's my #1 silver :)
