Polka Dot Nails
For my birthday a few weeks ago I took the day off so I could enjoy relaxing at home with nothing to do all day. It was wonderful. Like any other day free, I painted my nails. Looks complicated but it is a pretty simple idea and combines all the same techniques I’ve done before.
- Scotch tape
- Tooth pick
- 3 colors of nail polish
- Top coat
Cut scotch tape and place on nails in a diagonal pattern as shown. I did my middle finger and thumb in an opposite pattern. Be sure to cover all parts of nails not to be painted and smooth tape to avoid bubbles.
Using second color (black) paint over non taped parts of nails. Allow polish to dry 5 – 10 minutes and then rip of in a gently, fast motion.
