Spice up your neutral nails-polka dot style

As I have been sharing ways to spice up neutral nails, I have been spicing them up with things I love. It was books last month and this month it is polka dots.  I LOVE POLKA DOTS!  These nails are super simple and quick to do.  Lets break it down into simple steps.

  1. Gather your supplies.  You will need your neutral nail color, 1-5 colored nail polishes, and pointy tipped Q-tips.  
  2. Paint your nails the neutral color.  I use Essie Marshmallow.  (See post here)
  3. Let them dry completely.  Do this while watching your favorite show and the time passes more quickly. *wink*
  4. Decide what colors you want to use and in what order you want your polka dots on your nails.  I decided to do 5 different colors (one different color for each finger).
  5. Next dip the pointy end of the Q-tips into the various colored nail polishes.  
  6. Before you put the polka dots on your nails make sure you take off the excess nail polish.  I did not do that at first and the polka dots were horrendous.  Absolutely awful.  (See below) 
    Right way
    Wrong way
  7. Let the polka dots dry and apply a top coat if wanted.  
Enjoy!  I think they are so fun!  

Inspiration for painting my nails this way came from this pin on Pinterest.

I found this post via the Frugal Friday Link Up Party. Super cute nails. I found a tool at the Dollar Tree that is specifically making polka dots on nails. I find q-tips are much more messier than this tool ( I am super uncoordinated) . Thanks for sharing those adorable nails of yours.
