Step by Step: Polka Dot Nails

Playful polka dots are a cute and easy way to refresh your spring manicure. In 5-steps, we show you how.


1

BASE COAT

Start by applying a layer of base coat. This will prevent staining and give your polish something to stick to.

 



 

2

BASE COLOUR

Then apply a strong base nail polish colour – we love white for creating contrast. Allow your nails to dry.

TOOTH PICK

Now, pick two nail polish colours to create your dots. Pour a small amount of each nail polish onto a strip of tin foil. Then take a toothpick and dip it into the polish.

CREATE DOTS

Use the toothpick to dab dots onto your nails; alternate the colours as you go along. Leave your nails to dry.
