Polka Dot Nails

If CÉLINE’s head-to-toe ensemble for the Resort 2013 collection is any indication, the polka dot trend is set to pop up all over this season. To give your nails a piece of the spotted fun, check out the tips below on how to achieve a fashion-forward polka dot manicure:

What You’ll Need:

  • Two polish colors (I used essie’s “Lady Like” and Sally Hansen’s “White On”)
  • Scrap paper
  • Mechanical pencil
  • Clear top coat

The How-To:

  1. Paint your nails with two coats of the color you would like for the base. Let them dry completely.
  2. Put three large drops of your second color on a piece of scrap paper.
  3. Dab the tip of the mechanical pencil into the puddle of polish and gently dot each nail until you get a design you like.
  4. Let polka dots dry for a few minutes.
  5. Apply a clear top coat to finish.
