I managed to use 5 different brands without even trying =) The nail dotting tools are ones off Amazon. They're useful but if you hop on Google you can find plenty of ways to make them homemade.
Of course since this was a new adventure I did it on my toes. Do they look like flowers? No. Not at all. But it was practice & they still look interesting. IRL people said they look cool. So not a complete failure.
Any polish addicts have advice/cool designs they've done?
