Multi Colored Polka Dots

Hello Everyone!

Another nail post today were I have a trick for creating polka dot nails easily with something you probably already have in your make up bag.

Another nail post today were I have a trick for creating polka dot nails easily with something you probably already have in your make up bag.

  1. I use an old felt tip liquid eyeliner brush and I have cleaned and dried throughly, Simply snip the pointy end off with a scissors leaving me with a flat felt tip base. 
  2. Source for Image
  3. Then I cover a plate in clingfilm (clear plastic wrap) and drip some nail varnish onto the plate. Get your eyeliner brush and lightly dip it into the nail varnish - careful not to put too much nail varnish on the brush or it will create blobs not dots.
  4. I used four differant colors for this look, so I dipped so cotton wool in nail varnish remover and cleaned the top of the brush between colors.
  5. It is important to take your time with this look and try and leave 2-3mins between each new color. 

Top Tip: Do not apply clear nail varnish for at least two after applying the dots are it may smudge and run, ruining the look

Then nail varnishes I used for this look were:
Base; Sally Hansen - Pink Slip
Orange: Catrice -Fred said Red
Red: Rimmel - Double Decker Red
