Cute simple polka-dot pattern nails version 2 tutorial

Hey there.

I am BACK!
With another nail version of the polka-dotted pattern. This look is slightly different to the usual polka dots as it is more dense. Click on this link if you want a makeshift dotting tool.

I decided on a white base so that my colourful dots will stand out. A word of caution if you decide to do the same, any imperfection will stick out like a sore thumb.

I have received a fair few compliments from friends and strangers alike. They were cute but also classy.
Most people have told me that liked the combination of green and purple, as well as the blue and purple (thumb and index finger respectively), but you can play around with what you have available.

I've added a quick tutorial guide in case you're interested in replicating this pattern.

 With a bit of practice, you'll get this.

I also tried it on a dark cherry red base, with pink and white dots. It reminded me of rocky road chocolates!

I personally prefer the dark base as I can get away with mistakes ;P

Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend!

I love how intricate the dots are without looking tacky! And the colours are so dainty and demure - timeless! Plus your guide is incredibly helpful! :)
