Orly: Grave Mistake

For these nails I started out with a base of 2 coats of Orly Grave Mistake.  Then I used the shiny mirror reflective dots placed on the nail.

To achieve the mirror dots, I had a metallic gift bag that someone had given me for a birthday, and I purchased a hole punch from Hobby Lobby(in the paper art section with the other hole punches). I used the hole punch to make the dots using the smallest hole available on the punch and this is what I got! I am happy to say that the dots did not crinkle or anything when I put the topcoat on. 

To smooth it out I used 1 coat of Gelous and 2 coats of HongKong Girl Topcoat.

 What do you think about the silver dots?
