Nail Art Dotting Tool Set

Nail art dotting tool set £1.32 eBay 

I'd been looking at these cheap sets of nail art dotting tools on eBay for absolutely ages and last month  I finally got round to ordering a set. I chose to use an overseas seller but there are now also quite a few UK sellers who stock these sets usually at around £1 additional cost.
  When they arrived of course I had to try them out straight away and one particular style that had caught my eye a while back was the mermaid design where the nail is covered in overlayed multicoloured dots. This style is practically impossible without a dotting tool (!) so I knew I wanted to try that out first but as you can see from the photograph above I got a little carried away!
Although they are mostly round tools there is one tip in the set that is more of a pointed shape which if you don't have any brushes or nail art pens can be used to draw lines (albeit slightly messy ones!).
 The thing that disappointed me most about the set is the variety of the dotters as I personally would have liked them to range in size a little more. I also would have liked to have seen more versatile tools like the pointed one but overall I would recommend these sets. 
If like me you enjoy trying out different nail art designs then it's a bargain at a small £1/2. I really don't know why I didn't invest sooner, they definitely would have made things like my Pokeball nails a whole lot easier!

Polishes used: Collection 2000 BMX Bandit, Models Own Sterling Silver, Barry M Grey, Topshop Pool Party & Future (Limited Edition), Nails Inc Bluebell (Limited Edition), OPI Skull & Glossbones
