DIY Polka Dot Mani...

My unhealthy obsession with polka dots continues with these 3 easy steps to dot my nails.  You will need a base coat, your fave nail polish color, Sally Hansen nail art pen {found at any local drug store} and a top coat.




Shown here: Loreal polish in Club Prive 105, Sally Hansen nail art pen in white, Seche Vite fast dry top coat

Let's get started:
Step one:  Apply a base coat on clean dry nails, let dry.  Apply 2 coats of fave nail color and let dry.
Step two:  Press art pen lightly on dry nails, creating dots randomly.
Step Three:  Apply top clear coat and let dry.

**Tips: Shake pen really well and press down on a paper to get polish moving.  Let nails dry really well before applying top coat to avoid smearing dots.  I use Seche Vite fast dry top coat before I create dots, then I finish with clear top coat.  Get creative! You can dot just the ring finger nail, or space out your dots more, or try a different polka dot color {pens are available in most colors}. Have fun and enjoy!!
