Japan Nail Art Inspired DOTS!

Many nights, when I can't sleep I surf the web for nail art inspiration. Could that be why I'm dreaming about nails now? Hmm...

I downloaded a free app that is basically a nail salon finder and nail art catalog. It's mostly in Japanese but I get the gist of it. The nail art in this catalog is amazing and wonderful. Many of the designs have something different going on, on several nails.  Not all of the nails are identical.

One day I woke up inspired by this and created these nails.
No nail is designed the same but the colors and dots coordinate them.

That's all, just 4 colors!
I painted the Kiss Oval Active Length full cover nails alternating Rimmel Cherry Fashion, and Wet n Wild Black.

I taped off the nails using Nailene French Tip Guides. On 2 of the nails, I didn't tape off. (Later on, you'll see I didn't dot the left hand pinky)
On some nails I painted Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud, or Cherry Passion or Black or it was already painted the color I wanted. The dots are done with a cut off end of q-tip. 

It's not rocket science so if some of the dots are messed up they'll be covered with the fruit pieces.

After I removed the tape, I started going around the fruit wheel.

I even got confused on what was up and what was down!

So the end result, after turning all the nails so the ovals face up, I got this:

I think it turned out ok anyway. 
The fruit pieces, although not Fimo Fruit, worked pretty well, except for a couple that disappeared under the clear polish. Once covered with clear polish the curling was minimal.
The wheel, however, gave me no end of frustration. 

It will only turn smoothly going left...for awhile...and then it has to go back from whence it came or it stops like a stubborn donkey.

On each nail I put rhinestones from Broadway Nail and Body Art Kit.

What do you think of my Dots nail art? Have I gone over the bend?

I'm still on the look out for the elusive 2 size ends nail dotter. 
Anyone have a suggestion?

Did anyone else watch the season finale of Game of Thrones on HBO? Holy CoW! And we have to wait almost a year for the next season??? WTF is up with that? Are you as sick as I am that they wait so long on these shows to start the next season? That's just not right.

Hope you all are having a great week!
