Multi-Coloured Polka Dot Design

Published February 23, 2013 by beginnersnailart

Hi everyone. Off out tonight so thought I’d share the nail art I’ve done for it. You can use any colour you like for this and it’s really quick. You’ll need a base colour, three bright colours for your dots, and two dotting tools: one large and one medium. Here I used Collection 2000’s Liquorice for my base, Technic’s Amethyst and Nails Inc’s St James for my large dots, Nails Inc’s Atomic for my smaller dots, and for my dotting tools I used the end of an eyeshadow brush and a dry ball point pen. I choose these colours to match my outfit for tonight. Enjoy!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, thanks for looking, Kirsteen.
