Since I decided to browse the thread, I decided to re-try the dots.
Its still not as good as the original, but its better than my last attempt.
eta: nail colors are: Mark. (it was on the Avon site) in Industrial (it looks a lot grey-er in the bottle then on my nails... somehow it has a purple-y hue) with the matching plum Mark. dots, Avon (for the green) and Nicole for the pink/peachy color. I'll get the exact names when I get home. The only one I know is the base color.
Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity
Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)
Known HGs: KCCC, homemade fsg, honey
