Create stripes using dotting tools

Hi,
Today I'll show you a new technique to make an abstract, striped manicure.
All you need for it is three different-coloured nail polishes and, surprisingly,
a dotting tool. If you don't have the latter, you might as well use a toothpick,
the tip of a bobby pin or a sewing pin. 
I started with two coats of Illamasqua -Gamma and then I created thinner and
thicker stripes using Sinful Colors -Amethyst and Astor -Iconic Red.
You don't have to use this colours, any other combination will look good.
Unfortunately I don't have a tutorial for this design, but please watch this Youtube tutorial
that inspired me, too. What do you think?

Wow... doesn't that make a huge mess? It's not really my style, but it's a form of art, I think. Each nail is unique :D
