Polka-Dot Nail Art Tutorial From Instagram

This New Nail Art Trend Is the Chic Answer to Typical Polka Dots

Popular YouTube blogger Amymarie Gaertner recently took to Instagram to provide a chic and customizable take on typical polka-dot nail designs. She starts her tutorial by lacquering her nails navy, creating one white accent nail. Then, instead of painstakingly painting on perfect dots, she uses a dotting tool for various pointillist patterns. Each talon is different, resulting in an eye-catching look.

The great thing about this particular technique is that you can tailor it to your personal taste and nail art skills . . . because there are plenty of us who would feel pleased by just crafting a few solid spots. If you don't have a dotting tool, don't fret — using the head of a bobby or sewing pin works just as fine!
