Art Deco Polka Dots

Hi Guys! :)
Ugh, so I just don't feel like doing my nails at the min, the humidity is getting to me! It's so hot but hammering it down with rain :(
It's Dotty for Dotticures week on the All Things Nails fb group so here's my contribution :). 
These nails make me think of wallpaper in an eccentric house! I can't decide whether I really like the colour combination or not, what do you think?


So I started with two coats of Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine 'Lychee' which is a nude beige colour that goes on nicely, quite thick. It dries quickly and with a lovely shine. I then used BM GHS 'Green Berry', 'Guava', and 'Papaya' and Barry M 'Matt White' to create large dots with a dotting tool I got from ebay in a pack of five. The dots dried quite quickly due to the polish used, so I then added some smaller dots inside these dots and random dots around the bigger dots to fill in the background.
