How to Create a Polka Dot Nail Design

Have you ever wanted to know how to get the perfect dotted nails? Have you tried everything and still not been able to get them in the shape you want? Well I’m here to help! What you will need is:

  • Red nail polish
  • White nail polish (Colors may be replaced with different colors.)
  • Toothpicks
  • A nail file

To start out, you’ll need to take your base coat and apply twice to ensure that the nails are fully colored.

Then, you’ll take your toothpick and dip it into the opposite color of the nail. Test your dots out on a piece of paper.

AFTER your nail base is dry, start applying your dots. Do a line of dots and then repeat. If you want a random look, scatter your dots. Apply the same way down the nail. Repeat. And TADA! you have the perfect dots.

It may take a few tries to get it perfect, but it is a much easier way to get your nails in that perfect form. For extra detail take black or gold or a color that is different and write your favorite team’s logo, put a flower or even put your initials.

To finish add a sealing clear coat for extra shine and hold.
