Painting Polka Dot nails
In painting Polka Dot nails, start off with the regular base color. You can choose any of your likings. You can even opt for a clear base color if that goes with the design or color combination that you have in mind. Before doing anything else, leave the coat to dry.
The next step is the fun part; putting on the polka dots! Choose the polish color that you want and what you must remember is that lot of tools can help you put on the polka dots; just be sure to choose which one is comfortable for you.
The easiest tool to spot at home would be toothpicks. Break out the pointy edge of the toothpick so that you will have a thicker and rounded edge. Dab a small amount of polish on to a clean sheet of paper. And slowly but surely poke the toothpick into the polish and slowly coat your nail base polish with small polka dots.
A band aid is also something that you can find commonly at home. Simply cut off the part where there are small holes poked into the band aid and pace it over your nail. The band aid will stick in place and you can simply paint over the band aid’s holes. Remove the band aid and you will have extra small but pretty looking polka dots.
Q tips, cotton tips and pencils also follow the same procedure and they can be easier to use for some who would want bigger or wider polka dot sizes. Nail art pens and permanent tip markers are specially designed to create perfect looking.
You can also overlap polka dots with each other to achieve a wonderful effect! Of course don’t forget to apply your top polish to preserve the polka dots which you have creatively dabbed on your manicure.
