POLKA DOT NAILS

I did a polka dot design tonight on my nails. Of course I was really looking for an excuse to use my new camera :)


I came across a great nail art blog, Asami had some really great tips on doing polka dot nails. The blog is called MY MANICURE, and it is great. Great step by step guides with pictures. Anyone interested in nail art should take a look :)

You all might remember that mint green color I saw on Khloe Kardashian awhile back, well I ordered China Glaze - Groovy Green. It's petty close, but a bit on the light side. I would prefer it to be more green. That's the color I used on my tips. Since Groovy Green was so sheer I painted a base coat of China Glaze - White on White. I used black acrylic paint for the dots. I messed up a little doing my right hand, and not all of my dots are uniform in shape, but I really like it!

Great nails - and great pictures! Thanks for the nail art blog link, I'll go take a look. :-)

JAMIE - You should really like her site, it's so handy for novice nail art-ers like us - lol! And thanks for the compliments!

Asami said...

Aw, thank you for the link! I really appreciate it. :)

You can add a few drops of a darker green polish to this bottle if you have one. That'll make it a little more green, as long as you're okay with mixing. Even better if it's the same company.

Your nails look super cute!

Brooke said...

ASAMI - No problem! I have to spread the word, your stuff is just too cute and informative too! Truly one of the best step-by-step nail art blogs I have come across! :)

Asami said...

Thank you! You know, something I thought of after I left my last comment, is OPI's "Gargantuan Green Grape." It kind of reminds me of this color, but with more punch. It's one of my favorites to wear as tips with white polka dots. Check it out! :)

ASAMI - I will for sure check that out. Thanks for the tip!
