Weekend Nails: ~polkadotted tip~

This is just a quick post.
A simple way to spice up your nails. It would just take you a maximum of 20 minutes to do it....

Sorry for the blurry pic..
  • As always start with a base color...
  • Then make a french tip using a contrasting white or yellow...or anything.
To make it 'edgier' i decided to make my ring fingernail different from the rest of it...(& actually it's also a way to hide the fact that i broke my nail on that finger ^_~)

  • Make some dots on the tip by dipping your tool (dotting tool, toothpick, hairpin, etc) on your base color.
  • Then apply it...
Its easy to make dots, just touch the tip of your tool on the so

  • Now decorate your nails with dots
  • Finish it off by lining it with black line using a thin,long bristled-brush or nail art pen
  • Then top it off with a clear polish & top coat!
Don't forget to clean the edges of your nails...

This actually just took me 15 mins (provided you have fast dry polish)..including the drying time...pretty fast i might say!

Didn't i say that this is just a short post?

Have a nice weekend,girls!

Jaa ne~!

you can apply base coat every other day if you are growing your nails so that it won't peel that much...
also buff the edge of your nails so that it won't peel that easily
