Day 11: Polka Dots

The first day of the 2nd part of the Challenge – Polka Dots Nails. This design is always fun and easy to do :) Today I combined two colors – lilac and purple:

Polka Dots Nails

I decided to take Done Out In Deco by OPI and a purple nail polish by Pupa. I applied 2 coats of OPI on my nails, and for my accent fingers I used Pupa – 1 coat. Then I used my dotting tool to fill in each nail with the opposite color. When the design dried I added 1 coat of a clear top.

Here is the dotting tool I used to do the mani:

Overall, for the Polka Dots Nails I needed:

  • Clear base – OPI for natural nails
  • Lilac polish – OPI Done Out In Deco
  • Purple polish – Pupa (no name)
  • Dotting tool
  • Clear top – Orly Glosser

      Thank you :)
      I used to draw dots with a nail art brush before I got the dotting tool, and I must say that this tool makes it all much easier for me. I would also recommend to buy a double ended one for big and small dots, that way you ll be able to do more designs and flowers.
      btw I just realized I photographed the wrong end of the tool %) This one is for tiny dots, but the idea is the same :)
