Polka Dot Nails for the #31DC2016Weekly


It is now time in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge that we start doing specific nail art elements.  The first one is the easiest...Polka Dots.  You can make dots with a ton of different tools.  You can use dotting tools or items around the house like toothpicks and bobby pins.  It took all of my will to not do a #doublesidedots manicure but I do them all the time.  So I went with something a little different.  I did tiny dots in a swirling pattern.  I used a little toothpick to make my dots, so this is a design that anyone could do.

The base color is a deep eggplant purple creme from P2 Cosmetics called "Diva Expressiva".  I used a toothpick and Maybelline "Bold Gold" to create the dots.  I topped it off with a glossy top coat.

Then I had to see what it would look like with a matte top coat.  I chose to use the Matte Top Coat from Polish 'M which dries to more of a satin finish.  Doesn't it look like velvet!?
