Polka Dot Nails Tutorial

For the very first time, instead of going to the nail saloon to get my nails done, I tried to do it myself. Although the outcome isn’t as perfect compared to the ones done by the saloon, but I think it’s quite good for first timers. 😉

Colorful polka dot nails!!! Not only this is the first time doing this myself, but this is also the first time I have colorful nails. Honestly, I was never a fan of colorful nails before, but I’ve seen so many people around me has different colors on each nails and I just thought of trying ’em too. 🙂 This is simple to do, and if they were to get it done by the saloon, it’s gonna cost quite a lot of money.

So here we go…

Pick a few of your favorite nail polish colors. I’m using these 5 colors and they were bought from Face Shop.

After the 2nd layer has dried, choose the color of nail polish you want as the polka dots and drop a few drops on a piece of unwanted paper. For me, I’m using a clear plastic.

Using a toothpick, just “dot” your nails randomly. You can use a mechanical pencil too, but the reason I’m using a toothpick is because it’s sharper. Hence, it creates smaller dots.
