Nail Art: Mix & Match Polka Dot Manicure

Mix & Match Polka Dot Nail ArtA few nights ago I was flipping through an Avon catalog and ran across a little nailspiration. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a polka dot manicure and who doesn’t love mixing navy and white? And I mean…I love polka dots!

Of course, I wanted to put my own twist on things. I decided to use a shimmery dark blue for my base color instead of a plain navy. I used 2 coats of essie Bell-Bottom Blues. Then I let that dry slightly before adding white polka dots with essie Private Weekend.

I used the smallest dotting tool from my dotting tool set and made the polka dot pattern a bit different on each nail. This added variety plus it takes away the pressure of making every nail look the same. And for me, that’s by far the hardest part of nail art.

Polka dots just make me happy and this manicure is no exception. I’m definitely going to be rocking this manicure until it chips. And probably taking photos of my nails in my car. Because that’s normal.

There are a couple additional swatches under the jump!


PS: If you don’t have dotting tools you can easily make one. Check out my DIY Dotting Tool post. However, dotting tools are inexpensive. The ones I use can be found here on Amazon. They are $1.50 and ship free!
