Lazy Days of Summer Challenge - Dotting Tool Summer Fun

Hello everyone!
As promised, here's another post from the Lazy Days of Summer Challenge! Apparently the Autumn Challenge will be starting on the 1st of September so I need to get the rest for this challenge finished off, so I may post more than once on some days :P Anyway, the theme for this post was dotting tool summer fun. My first thought was to do more flowers with a dotting tool but I wanted to try something I haven't done before. So I decided to do a ruffle mani!
I didn't want these nails to be too in your face so I only did ruffles as an accent nail, I also only used two different colours but I really love how it looks.
 For these nails I used two coats of China Glaze Grape Juice. This is a new polish I bought last week and I absolutly love it. I don't own too many purples and this has beautiful shimmer running all the way through it. It also applied like a dream so naturally it's become a new favorite :P I then used OPI Rumples Wiggin' and China Glaze Octa Gone Wild and a large dotting tool to create the ruffles on my ring finger.
I'm really pleased with how this turned out. However, I think next time I try a ruffle mani I'll use more than two colours for the ruffles, I feel like it isn't as obvious as I'd like. I think this is a good way to wear the ruffle mani without making it too obvious, maybe a work appropriate look? Now, I want to try this out with nude polish!! :P

Thanks for reading :)
