DIY poka-dot pedi!
Flo writes… sorry I’ve been so MIA recently! But I’m back and I will get round to answering your questions very soon, so sorry if you’ve been waiting long for an answer! But today I’m going to show you this cute DIY pedi design (which works equally well for a mani in case you were wondering!). Its super simple to do and only requires one other polish and a thin tipped paint brush (although you can still use the brush from the polish I prefer a thinner point to get smaller dots). So lets get started!
- Apply a base coat to protect your nails from yellowing and damage from the polish you are going to apply. I used Rimmel london 60 second polish in 740 clear.
- Next apply two coats of any polish colour. I used a silver because I wanted to make it festive! My choice was LA colours nail lacquer in shade 22. Make sure that you leave at least 1 min between coats!
- Now pick the colour that you want to create the dots with! I think white and black work best but you can pick any colour you want, or even use multi colours! I used a thin tipped paint brush (which you can just clean with nail polish remover afterwards) and created lines of dots, which gives it a neater look. I used 17 fast finish nail polish in nightshade.
- Leave quite a while to allow the dots to dry before applying your top coat, otherwise the dots will smear and ruin all your hard work! I used sally hansen insta-dry anti chip top coat.
There how simple was that?! If you guys give it a try then I’d love to see a picture :)
Any questions? I’m going to be answering them all in the next few days! xxx
