Let’s start with how to add polka dots to your nails

Color you wish to Wear

Choose the base color you wish to apply on nails. This could be either the same color as of your dress or some contrast that it contains to make it match with your clothing e.g.  If you’re wearing a red dress with some black borders or embroidery then I will suggest you should have a black base. Make sure to apply a good base.

Colors which goes good in contrast actually look cool in polka nail  art such yellow, pink, sky blue, grass green sort of bright colors with white base. Moreover, it also depends upon the type of function are you going to attend and what dress you are planning to wear.

Apply Dots

Toothpick for Polka dots

Take a nail or a toothpick and apply a small amount of the contrast color on it. Make sure you don’t apply too much color on it or else it will become messy. Gently apply it on your nail and press it straight to have a dot on your nails. Reapply according to the design you wish to have. Don’t apply dots unless the base is not dried properly.
