Holo in a Dotted Frame
For the third installment of the 3rd Anniversary copycat challenge, I chose a simple, but fun purple dotted frame mani from A Girl And Her Polish!
For the base, I used an A-England polish that has become a new favorite - Crown of Thistles. No one has such a gorgeous formula like A-England. Thick, but smooth, and buttery. One coat is all you need, though I usually do two anyway. Her formulas are perfection.
I thought that the dotted frame was a fun and easy take on a framed mani. No worries about getting the lines exactly right, no needing a super-steady hand or even a special tool. If you don't have a dotting tool, a toothpick or the end of a bobby pin will work, too.
Isn't Crowstoes Minion a beautiful dark purple?

This is one nail art that can be done so many different ways with different colors. Like a great company dinner, it's simple, and doesn't take a lot of time, but still looks nice!
