Polka Dot Nails.

Polka dot nail art is a cute look for Spring and Summer. There is no need to spend a bunch of money at a salon to get this look. It is easy enough to do it yourself at home. Even if you not artistically inclined polka dot nail art should be doable. 

(Sorry I didn't get step by step photos. Next time I will. Honestly, it is so easy you don't really need them.) 

Step 1: Apply a base coat.

Step 2: Paint your nails with two coats of the base color you are using. Let the polish dry between the first and second coat.( You can choose any color, I used a coral shade to give the nails a spring feel.)

Step 3: After the main color is totally dry, put a few drops of your accent nail color on a paper plate. (You can use several or just one color for the polka dots. It's all up to you.)

Step 4: Dip the end of a Bobby pin into one of the colors, then carefully touch the bobby pin to your nail. You can make as many dots in that color on one nail as you want. (Note, you can get bigger or smaller dots by varying the amount of polish you apply to the bobby pin.) 

Step 5: Repeat step four on all nails. 

Step 6: Repeat step four with the other colors you wish to use. 

Step 7: Let the dots dry for about 5 minutes. ( This is to be sure the polish is totally dry, other wise the dots will smear when you apply a top coat.) 

Step 8: Apply one to two coats of top coat. 

You're now done. Enjoy your fun nails!
