Nail Art Tutorial: "Chain of Love" Nails

As promised!  I'll be doing a simple nail art tutorial as inspired by my OrganicRituals Spa Manicure and Pedicure experience.  Since the color I chose is quite lovely to begin with, I did something really simple because I want the Hot Pink shade to pop up!  It's basically combination of dots and tiny flowers, which when put close together looks like connecting chain!  That's why I call this nail art tutorial the ...
Chain of Love Nails 

Step 1:
Prior to polish application, apply a base coat.  I usually use The Face Shop Base Coat but the base coat used this time is from Zoya.  2 coats of Zoya Polish in Whitney was applied and let dry.

Step 2:
Create a line of tiny dots all over your nail as shown below.  On the second line, you can create a tiny flower with 5 dots.  The smaller the better!

Step 3:
Create a line of tiny dots all over your nail as shown below.  On the second line, you can create a tiny flower with 5 dots.  The smaller the better!

Step 4:
This is optional, but to create a nicer flower look, use the needle method while dots are still wet.

Step 5:
Making sure dots are dry, apply a coat of your favorite clear polish or top coat.

Step 6:
Apply rhinestone if you have some, use a toothpick and press it hard! Do not forget to top it with a clear coat to protect the rhinestones from falling.

Voila!  Simple yet feels like the nails are all connected with tiny chains!  Don't you just love the polish color?  I do!!!!

Before I end this post!  I want to thank EVERYONE who joined the AMW & Dollface Gives: The 88 Dollface Palette.  It has the most number of joiners so far and I want to give each one of you a hug!  I do wish I am super rich to give each one of you a palette, I can't!  Dollface will shoot me!  *laughs*  Don't worry, AMW promises to have more contests for readers!  There will be more!  I promise you.
