Polka dot nail art tutorial

Saturday, 25 January 2014

Hello!  Fancy some polka dots?  I've got a little tutorial for you all today.  This is a bit of a mish mash of polka dot patterns, and was just something I knocked together as I went along really.  Also, you don't have to use the mix of colours that I've used here, you could try reds and yellows or pinks and gold... whatever you fancy!

So, for this manicure you will need:
  • White polish
  • Black/dark grey polish
  • Purple polish (or alternative colour)
  • Pale green polish (or alternative colour)
  • Dotting tool
  • Top coat
First, start by painting your nails with a white base.
