NOTD: Giles Deacon inspired!

I know I'm a bit behind with these but it hasn't been long since I really got into nail art. Looking through some nail art blogs and websites, I came across the Giles Deacon nails and wanted to try it out instantly.

I ordered some cool dotting tools from eBay for a few pounds which now enables me to do perfect round dots, instead of dodgy smudged ones. As soon as they came through the post this morning I decided to try them out and so I created the 'googly' eye look.

I opted for bright colours instead of a whole load of pastels as it's more fun that way!

Created using dotting tools, Models Own Slate Green, Nails Inc Victoria, Nails Inc Denim, Nails Inc Hampstead Heath, Nails Inc London, Barry M Matt White and 17 Pink Grapefruit.

I think they look rather cute and funky. Apart from the odd problem with the white polish, it didn't take very long at all, they also made me chuckle when they were poking over the top of my book last night as I was reading. :D
