Nail Hack: Dotting Tool

No dotting tool? No problem.

Many people want to explore fun and fancy nail designs without the hassle or cost of buying extra supplies. There is no substitute for polish itself (acrylic paints, but that is a post for another day), however a few of the infamous nail art tools can be duplicated just by what you may have lying around the house. This post is to show you that you don't always have to have the "right" tool to get the job done.
I've decided to compare a dotter tool and a pencil.
I chose a pencil since they are pretty similar in shape and size.
The pencil is sharpened to a dull point.
the challenger today is red nail polish, lets begin...

i dipped the dotter tool straight down into the polish
and made a row of 4 dots. 

i did the same 4 dots on the other side with the pencil.
all done. see, they look pretty much the same. its a tie for me!
Don't fret if you see fun designs being done, but you dont have the tools. Look around at what you have, alter something, or make your own. Theres a way around most things. I Hope I've inspired you to go paint your nails or try to make/find some new tools. Let me know if you find anything interesting.
