Bobby pin dots
This technique is ridiculously easy and versatile. You can do polka dots as shown below, a single classy dot at the base of each nail, a row of multicolored dots… All you need are a bobby pin, two+ colors and a dream. Here I used Essie “Chinchilly” and Sinful Colors “Snow Me White.”
- After applying your base color and letting it dry, use the brush to make a small pool of your dot color on a piece of paper.
- Dip your bobby pin in the dot color and make as many dots as you want on your nail. Re-dip after every dot to ensure uniformity. Press down lightly so your dots aren’t patchy.
- Wait to dry so you don’t smear them and then apply top coat. Err on the side of caution – better to wait too long than to apply topcoat too soon and smear your work.
