W7 Little Black Book & dotting nail art

*Nothing to disclose

Hello! This evening I have W7 Little Black Book to show you. I was getting a script filled at Chemist Warehouse near my work and it had a whole heap of W7 polishes for AU$2.99. I looked through what was there – there were a few good colours – but in the end I just settled for Little Black Book. I settled for one because I have another W7 polish, which I don’t know the name of as the label has come off, and it’s quite watery. But I am pleased to say that Little Black Book is a much better formula, so maybe I’ll be back to Chemist Warehouse soon!

While you might think Little Black Book is black, it’s actually more of a deep brown creme with purple and golden shimmer through it. What you see on my nails is two coats. Be wary when you apply the second coat though: if you don’t wait for it to dry a bit it will drag and bald a little when you run the brush over the first coat. Speaking of which, while the W7 bottles are the same as OPI bottles, the brushes are thinner but still reasonable to use.

This is a really nice polish for winter. It’s much more sparkly in real life as well, as you might be able to tell from the bottle shot.

DETAILS

  • Where to buy: Chemist Warehouse
  • Cost: AU$2.99
  • Volume: 15ml
  • Coats to opacity: Two

And because I like Little Black Book so much I thought why not put some dots on top? I used Models Prefer No Angel and two dotting tools in different sizes to get what you see below. Oh, and I popped a matte top coat on just for something different.

I think it turned out really cute. I typically have a habit of smudging the dots so I’m quite impressed I managed to get them looking like dots. Practice makes perfect! Let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m not normally mad on brown polishes, but with the red and gold shimmer, this is stunning. And I love the dots! You did a great job, they look very tidy.

    • Thank you! This is definitely the neatest I’ve been! It’s funny, when you do it right in the first place it doesn’t take any longer than rushing it and having to fix it up would.

  2. I think they look great! Where do you find the dotting tools? I have tried using the end of a bobby pin and its a mess.

    • Thank you! I found mine on eBay – you can get a pack of five double-ended ones for about AU$3 (or even less and that’s including shipping). I think the trick with the dotting tools is to go gently but quickly, otherwise if you leave it on too long it will smudge.

  3. oops………tool. πŸ™‚
