Watercolored Heart Dotticure

Hey Guys! I don't know why, but I am super excited about this mani. This has to be my ultimate favorite design I've done so far. I've seen this specific dot design somewhere; I just don't know who specifically created it. Either way I just love how it turned out! As you can tell I am obsessed with China Glaze's Sunstaional Neon collection.
  I can't help myself with those amazing bright colors. So it wasn't surprised, when I decided to used it again for this design. Since it's already February, the month of love, I wanted to create a dotticure, that included a heart. I think it completed the look! So let get to it: 
Since I was going for a water-colored look, I applied two coats of OPI Alpine Snow for the base. I think it's very important, since I was adding bright colors, especially neon's; the white base make "pop" a little more. I know there soo many water-colored tutorials out there, but I originally saw this technique on ImaBeautyGeek.com. I've kept the link for soo long, knowingly I would forget and because it was one of my favorites.
Using the tutorial for this design, with China Glaze's Too Yacht to Handle, Bottoms Up and That's Shore Bright for the watercolor mix. Once that dried I add large dots with a dotting tool, with Hail Nails Fetish Fund. For the heart, I simply drew the an heart outline on the watercolor, and filled it in with a nail art brush using Fetish Fund. I then added, small dots in the hearts to complete the look. 
Lastly, I sealed the designs with Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it! Overall I really loved how these came out. It is such a shame I would have to soon remove these :( However, I'll definitely recreate these again. 
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
