How To: Polka Dot Nails

I posted this picture on Friday and got a lot of compliments which really made my day. I’ve done this ‘how to’ post so you can do polka dot nails at home! It’s very easy and more affordable than going to get your nails done at a salon.

What you need: Any 2 colors of your choice and a bobby pin.

Step 1: Apply 2 coats of your base color. I used Revlon’s ‘electric pink’ which is a really beautiful color.

Step 2: Take your bobby pin and dip it into the nail polish to add polka dots over all of your nails. I used a white nail polish by Sinful Colors. The size and shape of the polka dots are more consistent when using a bobby pin instead of a brush.

 Let me know if you try it!
