Polka Dot Nail Art

While painting my nails yesterday, I got a little creative and decided to jazz them up a bit by adding some cute polka dots and a small heart. These nails are bound to get you some compliments! Also, I know my pictures aren’t the best so sorry about that! Let’s get started!:)ImageImageImage

I first painted my nails two coats of a dark green. I really love this shade because it’s so pretty! After letting the polish dry, I took a dotting tool and some white polish and began to apply the polka dots carefully on my ring finger. Make sure that the dots aren’t too close together! After you’re finished with the polka dots, take the same dotting tool and start to create a heart on your thumb. Take your time with this! It’s okay if it doesn’t look perfect. After everything has dried, apply a top coat and you are finished!

I like how the white stands out against the green and I will definitely try more polka dot nail art soon! If you have the right tools, this will be very easy nail art!

If you’re wondering, I received my dotting tool in a set with other nail brushes from Amazon. I use the other brushes for touching up my nails or for creating French manicures.

I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you next time!

Vintage/Color Block Nail Art

Yesterday  I tried some interesting nail art inspired by a pin on Pinterest. I’m not quite sure what it is – vintage? Color block? The pin specified that it was vintage, so let’s just call it vintage for now! It look relatively easy, but it’s harder than it looks! My nail art is definitely far from perfect, but it was a fun design to try!Image

You Will Need:

  • white polish
  • pink polish
  • tape
  • top coat

I first painted my nails with two coats of the white polish. After letting the polish completely dry, I cut some tape and applied it on the top half of the nail, and other strip on the lower half of the nail. Make sure the tape is firmly pressed down so the pink polish won’t accidently run into the white. After you’ve taped your nails, take your pink polish and paint the remaining space of your nail where there isn’t tape. Try not to paint the tape, only the middle section of your nail. (Does this make sense? Lol. If you have any questions, just leave a comment and I will try to answer it.) Slowly remove the tape immediatly after painting the pink shade. Feel free to touch up your nails too. After the polish has dried, finish it up with a top coat!

I like wearing this on my nails!  I do need to get better at it though! Make sure to take your time and wait until the white nail polish is completely dry before applying the tape. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below! If you want me to do any specific nail art, let me know and I will get to it!

Do you think you will be trying these vintage/color block nails?
