How To: Paint Polka-Dots

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to be showing you how to paint polka-dots on your nails! It's super easy and fun! Let's get started.

For this project you will need:
  • Marble Dotting tool (I got my kit at Sally's Beauty Shop for about $5.)
  • Clear Nail Polish (you don't need need this, but it helps if you put it as a base coat and top coat to make it more shiny) 
  • Two or three different colors of nail polish (you only need a third color if you want different colored polka-dots)
  • Napkin, old magazine, or paper plate

If you are putting on a base coat, do that first with the clear nail polish. 

After the base coat has dried, take the color of nail polish you want and paint it like you would if you were just painting nails without dots. Let dry before going on to the next step. 

Then, take the color(s) you want the polka-dots to be and put a little pool of it on the napkin/paper plate/magazine. 

Dip your marbler into the nail polish, 

{Check out the gingerbread house and Santa claus holder...ho ho ho XD}
And press it onto your nail. Do this several times until you have enough polka-dots, then repeat on the rest of your nails.
If you are doing a top coat, make sure you let the dots dry COMPLETELY before you paint it on. If they aren't dry enough, the dots smudge, and it makes it looks weird. 

Let dry and your done! Hope you enjoyed the tutorial! :)
