Polka Dot Nails

I’ve always loved doing my nails. Give me a Sunday afternoon, a Law and Order: SUV marathon and a new nail polish color, and I’m one happy girl. But beyond french tip nails, I don’t do anything fun with my nail color. A couple of weeks ago, a picture on Facebook caught my eye. Jessie, one of my oldest family friends, had posted a picture of her nails with adorable polka-dots. And polka-dots rock. I thought they would be perfect on the new green nail polish I recently bought.

First, I painted two coats of the green nail polish. Then, per Jessie’s instructions, I bent a bobby pin to make the polka dots:

I dipped this into while polish, made some dots on my ring finger and, once the dots dried, finished with a clear topcoat:

I loved the finished product, but I was a little concerned it was too “cutesy” for my business professional dress code at work. I tried one line of polka dots next:

Love, love, love it! And it was so easy. I plan to re-do this soon for St. Patrick’s Day, maybe with gold dots instead of white. This will be a lot of fun with bright summer colors as well. Thanks for the idea, Jessie!

  1. Love polka dots! My Pinterest board has something like this on it! Definitely for you younger gals…I’m going to stick with a polka dot dress, shirt or scarf. Way too cutsie for a grandma 🙂

  2. Let’s do that! Always fun to go outside your comfort zone when you are on vacation 🙂 Maybe I’ll do streaks of fucshia in my hair…hmmmm.
