This week we're going to show you a really simple technique that any nail art novice can master in no time. You only need two nail polish colors and a household object to make little polka dots! We were inspired by these cute spotty LuLu*s finds below that highlighted the dotty trend:
Here’s the look we’re going for:
- black nail polish
- white nail polish
- fast dry top coat
- a dull pencil
We chose to use a dull pencil as a dotting tool for our polka dots but you can also use a bunch of other household objects for this nail art technique. You can make tiny dots with the end of a toothpick or a pin and the head of a pin can make large dots!
Start with a few coats of your base color. Allow the coats to dry completely before continuing. Then take your white nail polish (any contrasting color will work!) and put a few drops onto a scrap piece of paper or on some foil. Then use your "dotting tool" and dip it into the paint.
and then add a top coat and you're done-- your nails will be cute as a button!
