Winstonia Store Dotting Tool review and leopard nail art!

Affiliate Code, Press Sample (Some of these items were sent for review)

Hi Guys!

Hopefully this week is treating you well, the weather by me has been so crappy. It’s been raining for about a week straight and it’s not letting up anytime soon. Come on! It’s Summer! I’m supposed to be sitting in my driveway every day after work with a frozen drink and yelling at all the neighborhood kids for leaving their garbage all over my lawn. This is a true story, I’ve actually become this lady lol Hey, just don’t act like an ass outside of my house and leave your trash and we can all exist peacefully. Haha!

Winstonia Store dotting tool nail art review

Well onto my mani that I’m so in love with. I was sent a new dotting tool from Winstonia Store for review, I was like dotting tool? Why do I need a new dotting tool? But now that I’ve used it I’ve seen the light! It’s actually pretty great and I think they’ve improved the whole dotting experience. It’s a metal double-ended barrel and the tips unscrew from the ends and then can be stored inside of the barrel. It comes with 8 interchangeable tips, so instead of having 4 double-ended dotting tools you can now have one! It’s very well made and has a good weight to it. It feels pretty fancy actually haha The only downside that I could think of, would be if you were in the middle of doing a mani and wanted to switch out a tip you’d have to unscrew one and potentially mess up your in-process mani. But for this mani I only needed to 2 size tips so I just screwed them in before I started. I don’t think I’ve ever needed more than 2 sizes for one design so I don’t see myself running into this problem but I thought it was worth noting.

Winstonia Store sent me a 10% discount code, use code TWISTAR. Pretty clever code right? HA! Love it.

This purple! I reviewed the Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neons HERE and then I also did a bunch of stamping manis with this collection HERE. I’ve been wanting to use ‘Diggin’ The Dancing Queen’ again and leopard seemed purrfect! Like my review said, these polishes got mostly bad reviews BUT I find using 2 coats over 1 coat white undies and they are sooooo pretty! They’re a little thick but sheer but the white undie cancels it all out and they’re worth it to me.

Different Dimension Big Bang polish swatch silver holo glitter

The silver holo glitter goodness is Different Dimension Big Bang, still one of my most favorite full coverage glitters. It covers perfectly in 2 coats. Just love this one! The 2mm black round studs are from ebay.

Winstonia Store Dotting Tool review and leopard nail art

The Winstonia Dotting Tool, reminded me of the lead holders I used in college for doing technical drawings. It feels very mechanical and I love that about it. The tool speaks to the EngiNerd in me haha. 4 of the 8 tips are thicker and fit into the larger slot end while the other 4 tips are slimmer and fit into the opposite end. This will definitely be replacing my old loser dotting tools haha!

Don’t forget to use my code TWISTAR for 10% off at Winstonia Store.

Now that you see my fancy dotting tool, do you think you need one? Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Oh I need this! Whenever I'm using my dotting tools, I have to keep them from rolling all around the table. The roundness of this barrel on this looks to be similarly rolly. I love this manicure! The studs reminded me a lil Mickey!

    1. It's got a little weight to it so it won't roll as easy, but you know how barrel type tools are, always trying to escape! haha! Thank you!
