Anonymous: Hi, love your blog! Where did you buy the application tool to create dots with nail polish?

Thank you! Those are called dotters. I get mine from eBay for about $2 for a pack of 5 (double ended.) They ship from China so they do take a while to get to North America but they are worth the wait. Check out user Art La Lic. You can use household items such as toothpicks and bobby pins, but I find the tools are more consistent.

See how easy it is to get this look? It’s just a few well-placed dots that make it look like the colours interlock. What I didn’t show in this video is putting a base and top coat on. For tutorial purposes I skip the base coat but you should always use a base and top coat to protect your works of art on your nails! Always wait until your polish is dry before applying your top coat or else you risk ruining your design with streaks. What do you think of this tutorial?

These interlocking dots are SUPER SIMPLE to do! I promise! My next post is a video tutorial on how to get this look. Check it out!

Oh hey there retro tribal! This look was achieved with only nail polish! I sponged the different colours as a base and then drew the tribal design on with black polish. One of my faves…ever!
