Hello!  Happy new year!  How's about a tutorial to start the year off?  Fancy some polka dots?

For this manicure you need the following:
  • Base colour
  • Black polish
  • White polish
  • Dotting tools
  • Top coat
I've started off with a blue gradient base, but you could use a solid colour if you like.  Also, you don't have to use blue.. pick any colour you fancy.

Take a black polish and paint a thin strip down the centre of your nail.

Use a large dotting tool, and place large white dots down the the black stripe.

Use a small dotting tool and black polish and place some small dots on either side of your centre stripe.

Take your base colour (in this case, I've used blue) and place some small dots in the centre of your white dots.

Let this dry thoroughly and then add top coat.

Also... if you fancy it... mix up your finish!  I've put a matte top coat over the top of this.
