I’ve been in a “polka dot” frame of mind lately and since my nails are behaving and not breaking I went for a more nude look. Sally Hansen so graciously sent me some colors to play with so I went crazy! The nude look is very on trend and I thought I would switch it up by doing polka dots. Other than patience this is super easy! Definitely a recommendation for the beginner nail artist.
To start off this design, I used a sheer nude polish – Arm Candy. I did three coats of this and it’s still pretty sheer…which is perfect if you just want to enhance how your nails look naturally! I then used Good to Grape, Barracuda, Peach of Cake, and Rosy Outlook for all the dots!
For this particular design I used the smallest dotting tool in a set (like this one) but you really can use anything! Toothpicks would be a great substitute to do these small dots, or even a sharp pencil. There’s tons of options for polka dots so you don’t need dotting tools.
Here is a close up to see how I did the dots:
