Cute little dinosaurs for your personal enjoyment, right at your fingertips.


  • Base coat
  • Three/four polishes
  • Dotting tool/ toothpick
  • Topcoat
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Paint your base coat, and then your base color.

    Step 2

    With the bottle brush, make sure you don't have too much polish on the brush, make the body of your dinosaur. Just a swipe of polish, however big you want your dinosaur.

    Step 3

    Then with the bottle brush again, make your dinosaur's head.

    Step 4

    Use a a small dotting tool (or toothpick, pencil, bobby pin) make the little triangle spikes up it's back.

    Step 5

    I used a black striper but you can use whatever you used for the spikes, to make an eye and a mouth. Clean up with polish remover and a small brush or q-tip. Then top coat, and you're done!

    Step 6

    My other dinosaur. It's actually a little bit better than my other one. And the bottom left pic, that is the dotting tool I used.

    Step 7

    Enjoy your dinosaurs!! •The dot design on my pointer is called interlocking dots, and I've done a guide on it if you are interested.
