Nail Art Tutorial: Random Dots & Stripes

Hello everybody!
It´s Saturday! How is your weekend so far? :) I have a new nail art tutorial for you guys! :DLet´s start !
Step 1 : After applying your base color (I chose black and silver to have a better contrast), take a small brush and start painting random stripes. You can start at the base, or at the tip ... it´s totally up to you :)

Step 2 : Since it´s random, the lines can be straight, round or wavy. I like to alternate the stripes a little bit :)

Step 3 : Basically you can paint as many stripes as you wish, but keep in mind, there has to be some space left for your dots! :)

Step 4: After you´ve finished your stripes place some dots along them. Alternate smaller and bigger dots to make it look more random :)

And that´s it! Pretty simple right ? It´s a great design for beginners, because you can do what you want...just go crazy with your dots and stripes :D

If you wanna make it look more fun, you can use more colors for the stripes/dots. I did my nails both ways, so you can see how it looks.
I could use that as a full manicure as well :D  
I love this Nail Art, because you can´t do anything wrong with it ;) 
If you recreate this design, I would love to see it ! :) 
(Btw: You don´t have to have a blog to show me your recreation....just send me an email with your picture:) If I get a few, I could do a post on them! Sounds like a good idea, right? Let me know what you think!)

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend! :-*
