Hello everyone, a big hello to my old followers and a big welcome to my new followers, thankyou for following my little old blog! It's taken me ages to get another post done as I've been mega busy and I really needed to get my face from last post off the homepage!!
Today I have another of the a-england polishes from my collection, the glossy black known as Camelot. I don't think I've ever worn a straight up black polish as the colour doesn't really suit me. Camelot is a great polish though and I will probably use for nail art, as I have further on in the post.
For the photos I did 2 coats, and it is pretty quick to dry to a beautiful high gloss so typical of the a-england polishes.

I also got some dotting tools for christmas and anyone who knows me will testify to my love of polka dots, one of my favourite patterns! I even dress my daughters in lots of dotty clothing and I'm happy to say I've pretty much indoctrinated them into the way of dots- they love them too!
So I've had a couple of tries with the tools and I love them, expect more and even more dotty manicures... over Camelot I used matte topcoat from Boots 17 to create the pattern and I really like the effect, I also like the tactile feel of the dots, being slightly raised:

I like the how using the matte topcoat rather than a different colour to create the dots has produced a subtle take on a bold pattern.
Do any of you like polka dots or are you more of a stripey person?!!
Until next post, which will be a quick rundown on my nailcare and filing routine as asked by Samantha on Twitter!
