a simple polka dot manicure using only a q tip!

I don't know about you guys, but I really feel like I have my life together when I have a good manicure. Pretty nails make everything you do with your hands more fun. I could be doing something silly like peeling a potato and I'll feel like a hand model! With that being said, over the summer, we're going to share three easy DIY nail tutorials (to make you feel like a hand model always)!

 The first nail tutorial is a fun polka dot mani - in this case we used white with purple polka dots, how cute is this?!

To start, pick your favorite base color. It's best to choose a color that is lighter than the color you want your polka dot to be or a metallic color for your polka dot if you wanted a darker base. 

We started with a simple white base and used a fun purple color from Essie.

Next, use a q-tip to paint the polka dot! Simply dip the q-tip directly into the nail polish and then onto the nail.

The harder you push down the bigger the dot will be. If you want a tiny dot apply really light pressure and for a bigger dot (like we did) push harder!

It's easy to switch up this type of manicure with different colors and different sized dots depending on your mood.

Let them dry and now you have fabulous nails to take on the rest of the week with!
