Check me out, I have nail art "equipment"... well, dotting tools

I've spoken in the past about my complete lack of ability in the whole nail art department but if there's one thing I can do, it's putting dots on nails.  So a couple of weeks ago, my good pal CherrySue directed moi to this seller on ebay with cheap little dotting tools.  In about a week, they were delivered and I couldn't wait to get dotting!

This is what they look like.  They're light plastic tubes with a little design on the body and dotting bits on either end for your dotting pleasure.

One end has differently sized balls and on the other side, they're all the same, not sure why, but anyway, I'm not going to give out about uniformly sized balls.

Deciding to play a bit, I decided since there were five dotting tools, I'd use each one on a different finger, I'm mad like that...  I already had a hot pink nail polish on from the Kardashian Kolor Spring collection from Nicole by OPI, called All Kendall-ed Up and wanted to get an extra day out of it, so chose Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel in Decadence for the dots.

The dotting tools allowed for really even dots and were so easy to use.  I kept a paper towel close by to wipe off the ball when the polish started to dry up a bit.  So much easier than trying to use a hair clip or a toothpick!

I picked up another dotting tool set as part of an upcoming giveaway, so stay tuned for that folks!  Is there anything else out that that a novice nail art person can play with that's easy peasy?
