Floating Polka Dot Manicure

Floating Polka Dots ManicureNude nail polish can feel fresh, clean, and simple or make you say ‘why even bother painting your nails’?! I, for one, lean to the ‘fresh & simple’ side and love a nude mani. But I can never leave anything plain, so I decided, why not throw some polka dots into the mix!!

Here’s What You’ll Need…

Floating Polka Dots Manicure - What you'll need

+ Nude polish that closely resembles your skin tone {Here’s a wide variety of nude shades}
+ A basic white polish or add a summer neon for a neon + neutral look
+ A dotting tool – Got this guy off eBay (only $1!!), but could also use the head of a pin or bobby pin

Start with two coats of nude polish, then break out the polka dots!
