Rainbow Dots



Dotted nails are one of the easiest, fastest and yet eye catching nail art designs there are. This is just one of the ways to do a dotted nail. I think it looks bright and summery,  perfect for this weather. 

There are just two easy steps a dotted nail: apply a base colour (you don't even need that if you don't want), then add your dots. 


The above photo shows two sizes of dotting tool. You can get a set of 5 cheaply from amazon or ebay. The largest the ball at the end, the larger the size of the dot. You could substitute a small dotting tool for a tooth pick for certain designs. 

Pop a blob of polish on a spare piece of paper. Touch your tool to the polish as far in as it can go. Then dot on to your nail. 

Tip: Keep your tool evenly covered with polish and make sure  the pressure you use to dot onto your nail is even. This keeps the dots the same size. 

Have fun with the different colour combinations and different sized dots you can use. Keep posted for some more dotted designs. 

Tip: Search "dotted nail art" for inspiration.
