Mani Monday: Going Dotty with Bourjois at LFW party

On Saturday I headed towards Somerset House, not to attend any of the shows (I know I belong in the FROW, but sadly the invites did not come flooding in....) but to get into the vibe at a Handpicked Media LFW party at One Aldwych Hotel.

I'll be sharing news about all the brands that were at the event with you later this week, but as it is Mani Monday, today I've got my mani from the event for you. The Bourjois team we fresh from doing the make up and nails at Zoe Jordan's show where they had popped nude nails on the models so were ready for some contrasting nail art fun.

Last weekend I had a gel manicure (a brand called 'BlueSky' and I have no idea what the shade is as it was a number rather than a colour) so the Bourjois nail guru added nail art to my pink canvas using the new Bourjois dotting tool* (£3.99). 
At first I was just going to have the dots on my ring finger as an accent nail, but I love it so much I wanted to try the other designs out too. The double ended tool has a larger tip for bigger dots and a smaller tip for tiny dots, allowing for a range of designs and you can let your imagination lead you.

The darker blue dots were made using Bourjois 1 Seconde Polish in Bleu Klein, the pale blue using Bourjois So Laque nail polish in Adora-Bleu (both £5.99).

I'm not great at nail art, generally I am far too impatient, but it didn't look too tricky to create some fun designs, so watch this Mani Monday space!
