Hello nail art lovers!

I had great fun with the post of today! ModCloth invited me to take part in a nail art challenge where dress designs are interpreted into nail art and if I get selected by their media team my design will be showcased on the ModCloth blog. I loved the idea and rushed to choose between over 3000 summer dresses on their website and found this chick polka dot beauty :) My nail design follows, stay with me to see how I made it.

The Chic Dress in Polka Dots

I love the dress, I think it is super cute and capturing its design in nail art was simple and fun!

First, paint your nails white
Get your white base done and dry. You might take a look at my How to make white polish work tutorial for the best result.

Then, add polka dots
Using different color to match the Chic dress in polka dots design, add polka dots to your white base. For my design I used the round head of a pin, cleaning it between color on a cotton pad soaked in nail polish remover.

Last, add your favorite top coat
Finish off with top coat to smooth your design and also help dots from fading too soon. Your dots have only one layer of color and are also different nail polish formulas (unless you used the same nail polish brand for all of them). I had a layer of my favorite Essie Good to Go to help drying and increase shine.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed!

      I can absolutely get your point in the two-year-old part :) I always do my nails when my little boy has fallen asleep or I would not be able to do anything at all, or at least wouldn’t show it, haha
