This pattern is patterned off of (har har, pattern puns) the Eames Dot pattern - a design Charles and Ray Eames did for a printed textiles competition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1947. I am a huge fan of mid-century modern product design and especially the Eames; their design principles really resonate with me. Fun tidbit: I graduated with a BS in industrial design, so I try to work my little design inspiration nuggets into nail posts sometimes ((like these nails inspired by Karim Rashid, who I have had the pleasure of meeting in person!!))
For my supplies, as per my new policy for February, I used two untried Floss Gloss polishes - Dinge, a pale, dirty pinkish creme, and Faded, an amazing grey inspired by faded tattoo ink. I really like both colors but was a smidgen bummed out at how Dinge applied (it took three coats instead of 2, and my expectations were high because I've heard a lot of hype about this brand). BUT probably the extra coat is my fault for not mixing my bottle of Dinge enough before applying it! I used a dotting tool and a trimmed down brush to replicate the Dot Pattern. I feel like this is a pretty easy design - especially when looking at a photo - and is a lil similar to my recent constellation nails. If you can do one of these designs you can deffo do the other!
