I LOVE nail polishes and I love mixing colours and trying to do different Nail Designs and although I’m not great at it, I do try even if my tools consist of a toothpick/cuticle stick..haha

I wanted to create a look on white nail polish so it’s like a blank canvas and thought I’d go for something colourful and cheerful as we I have plenty of time to bring out the darker colours!

What products did I use for my Nail Designs?

Nina – White Polish – French White

O.P.I – Turquoise – Fly (Nicki Minaj Range)

L.A Colours – Hot Pink – Lightning

17 – Deep Blue – Midnight Saphire

Cuticle Stick

I like to look after my nails and since I change my nail polish every 2 days or so I set some time aside in the evening and remove all traces of nail polish, soak them in lukewarm water with a few drops of oil and then apply a hand cream.

Once everything has been absorbed by my skin I’ll apply a base coat and by the time I’ve picked my colours for my Nail Designs they’re dry and ready to go! 🙂

Step by Step to achieving this ‘Dotted Nail Designs’ Look

– Soak nails in lukewarm water with a few drops of oil.

-Apply Base Coat

-Pick Colours 🙂

– Apply 2-3 coats of white polish to get a true, solid base colour.

– Randomly dot different colours on the nails using your two bright colours, I used pink (L.A Colours) and turquoise (O.P.I).

– Using a dark colour (17) dip in a toothpick or cuticle stick and try to do a little ‘c’ on the edges of the colours to outline the colour in a leopard print style.

-Let them dry FULLY

– Apply Top Coat

So there you have the steps to creating this Dotted Nails Designs however it took me quite when applying my polish using my left hand…I’m right handed so you can imagine haha!

For my very first attempt I’m very happy, next time I do this I NEED to go and get myself a black nail art pen especially if I want to create Nail Designs!

When applying your top coat make sure everything is dry as you don’t want to drag the darker nail polish over the white as this will cause smudging and all your hard work will go to waste! 🙁

Let me know what designs you like creating and what your favourite nail polishes are!!

      I was the same as you, I didn’t like it as I thought it looked like tip-ex but now I love it, especially with a bit of glitter xxx
