Polka Dot Nails {Nail Art Tutorial + Manicure Monday!}

Saved By Grace will be participating in a fun blog hop for all you manicure crazy beauty queens out there! Join me every Monday for “Manicure Monday” where you can not only check out my weekly nails, but check out other awesome nails!

I have been getting a lot of compliments on my latest nails! They are super easy to create and I wanted to share how I did it with my readers!  Read on for this great nail art tutorial.



Supplies Needed for Nail Art Tutorial:

  • Clean nails
  • 2 colors of polish in contrasting shades (I used Sally Hansen polish, one of my favorites because of how long it lasts and doesn’t chip!)
  • a mechanical pencil

Start by painting your nails one color. Apply 2 coats.

When your nails are dry, dump a tiny bit of the second polish color onto a piece of plastic or plastic paint palette. Lightly dip the tip of your mechanical pencil into the color and make small dots on your nails, with gentle touch.

Finish with a topcoat.


You are now done! Mechanical pencils make great detailers for nail designs.
