What we used:
-Ulta3’s ‘Hollywood’
-Boe Beauty’s ‘Green Valley’
-Boe Beauty’s ‘Ballet Pink’
-N.Y.C’s ‘Blue Bottle’
-Dotting tool

1. Using the Hollywood nail polish, paint two coats on your entire nail.
2. Go over the nail again with the Green Valley nail polish, but leave some of the blue nail polish visible.
3. With the Ballet Pink nail polish, go over the middle of the nail, leaving the blue and green visible.
4. Last but not least, using the Blue Bottle nail polish and a dotting tool (see our dotting tool post) and dot along the white nail polish.

Funky Dotty Nails!

This is a fun way to upgrade your nails from one block colour to simple funky dotty nails. I used a toothpick to do the dots, if you want more dotting tool ideas check out our post Nails: Dotting tools at home.

For the first base colour I used a pinkish-brown colour and then applied a clear top coat. I then went and added the black dots after it had dried. You can be as creative as your want with the dots; any pattern, any colour and any size. So be creative and also remember to add a clear top coat again over the dots to protect the design.

Happy Painting!
