Pink on Pink polka dots!

Today's nail art is simple - solid polka dots on a darker color in the same family, in this case pink on pink. As the base, I used 3 coats of Essie "Mod Squad", and Essie "Fiji" for the dots. To get the most uniform pattern, I start in the center at the base of the nail and then do 3 dots up the middle. From there I place the next dots offsetting the ones in the middle on either side, and work from there. To get the most complete look, I keep going all the way to the edges, even if they're not full circles. Clean up with a brush and some acetone and you're done! Make sure the dots are fully dry before applying topcoat - or you'll end up with streaks like on my pinky nail.

I hope you love this fun and flirty look!

Happy Polishing!
