Inspired by this mani that I saw a while ago, I decided to try and use that idea to satisfy the thought in my head that I wanted a mani that was neutral with bright tips. I think the design definitely looks better with the dots, rather than just a beige to bright gradient, but I'm not quite sure if I like it or not.
I used a shimmer topcoat which I think is limited edition, currently available in special displays at Rite Aid, called Shimmer Blast. It's an iridescent "rainbow" microshimmer polish, but it definitely leans toward the blue/purple end of the spectrum, which was why I figured it would go nicely with all the blue and purple shades in this mani.
