DIY Polka-Dot Nails

By Aling of What’s Last Call

I was searching for some inspiration this weekend and ended up finding it in this really cute blouse I bought from H&M a few months ago (sorry, they don’t carry it anymore). I loved the cute little stars sprinkled on the top so I used the same color scheme sans the stars, mainly to save time.


I started out with Wet n Wild’s Megalast in Sugar Coat 205B. The baby pink color was the perfect match and I do love the fat brush. For light colors, especially if I’m layering a design over it, I always do three coats to make sure color is even. Top off with a layer of topcoat for a candy-coated look.


Then I used my new handy-dandy dotting tool. Using the smaller end, I started placing random dots of Sinful Color’s Secret Admirer. Although it’s hard to see, this black has silver shimmer in it. I tried to vary the size of the dots a little to match the blouse.

Tag: Wet n Wild’s Megalast in Sugar Coat 205B, $1.99 at Walgreens.

Sinful Color’s Secret Admirer 933, $1.99 at Walgreens.

Dotting Tool, $7.00 at Sephora.

One more layer of topcoat, and you’re done!
