Polka Dot Nails

I love having my nails painted! As much fun as it is to go get my nails done at the salon, it’s not always practical time wise or money wise. So I do a lot of quick paint jobs at home. This is one of my new favorites! It’s super simple and I love the classy and fun look once it’s done! Plus, with endless color possibilities, it’s really versatile!


1. Clean, file and trim your nails. I also used my trick for how to make nail polish last before getting started!


2. Then put on your nail color. I am using Essie BBF Best Boyfriend which is one of my favorite nude colors. It has just a hint of pink in it.

3. After the color is dry, I used my new favorite thing: Sharpie Metallic Fine Point Permanent Markers. They come in gold, silver, and bronze. I used bronze for my manicure. I put little polka dots on both of my ring finger nails.

4. I applied a clear, quick dry top coat! Voila!
