Gradient Dotticure

Hey guys! I have a quick post for you today. I have no idea why, but I have been into dotticures lately. You'll see in my future posts why. Any who, a few days ago I finally bought myself Essie's new Resort 2014 Collection (well there goes my no buy for this month). :/ 
 I completely love the colors in this collection, mostly these two I've used for this design. I also made a tutorial here for Glam Express. Either way let's get to it: 
For the base I applied three coats of Essie Resort Fling. You can get away with two coats, but it wasn't completely opaque. So three coats will do. Once that dries, on makeup sponge I layered Essie Resort Fling and Essie Under the Twilight
Once Essie Under the Twilight was no longer visible. Using a dotting tool I added the first dot below the cuticle. Then added more dots on the sides, above Essie Resort Fling. I then added Essie Resort Fling dots above Essie Under the Twilight; to create a gradient do look.
 Lastly, I then sealed the designs with Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it! Overall I really loved how these turned out, mostly the colors! 
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
