NAIL ART | Polka Dots

DIY PROJECT, Nail Art

Over the last couple months, multiple gel manicures have taken a toll on my nails, so I decided to give them a breather. White is always my go-to nail color, but I have been having a bit of a polkadot obsession, so decided to test out some of my new nail art tools and give my basic mani a spotted makeover. I am also OBSESSED with the Foil Nail polish, so gave a couple of my digits a metallic touch. Steps and supplies after the break!

Nail care: I have a habit of picking off my gel manicure (I know, I know, It’s horrible) which leaves my nails super brittle. I started by snipping my nails super short with my nail clippers, because in the current state they would undoubtedly break. Then, I filed down the uneven surface of the nail and rounded off the top with a nail file. I added a base coat to strengthen the nails before painting.  Sally Hansen Double Duty 2-in-1 Base and Top Coat is one of my favorites.

Next, paint an accent nails with your Silver Foil.
Next, dip your dotting nail art tool in black paint and dab on your nails creating polka dots. I like to pour a little out in a tray, and dip the tool in between each dot for a consistent look.
