Overlapping Polka Dots - NOTD

Last night i had a sudden urge to paint my nails and that's not really like me, especially lately as i feel that it's pointless for me to paint my nails when they get ruined within a day(with a job like mine).
Anyway i had a vision in my head of what i wanted my nails to look like, at first i wanted polka dots then i thought the overlapping of polka dots would look pretty awesome to, so i put it to the test and this is the finished result, i'm pretty happy with them if you ask me! Though at first i was like, what the heck!? But taking a step back and really looking at them i actually love them and thought i'd share them with you! Some may think it looks messy but i do think the messier the better with these.. It's a love/hate thing so let me know what you think of them.
The first step to achieving these nails were to paint them a solid white, i used the OPI Alpine Snow which is the perfect white polish, i then let that fully dry before i moved on to the polka dots. The first colour i took was the Sinful Colors in 24/7 which is a gorgeous bright pink neon shade, i took a cotton bud to do the dots as i do-not own a dotting tool, however if you do then it would be easier to use that.
I just dotted them on evenly on each nail then took the Barry M Gelly Hi-shine polish in Greenberry which is my all time favourite polish for Spring/Summer time and then again dotted them on inbetween each pink dot, i did go back and dot some more pink and then some more green just to even them all out a bit.  Then lastly i just topped it off with my Essie Top Coat to blend them all in a little and to give them a little bit of a shine.

What do you think?.. Love or hate them?...
