I am in love with polka dot prints and manicure nail art design and have been my most favourite. Whenever I get an idea related to polka I can’t wait to get it to implement on my nails. Follow each step to try the same nail design at home. You can create it more amazing than any salon does for you.

I love this because in summer floral is best option to flaunt with your nails. You can check this recent art where I have used different colors with tools. Polka Dot tool have a major role to create this design, let’s learn how?  

1. Tools For Manicure Nail Art

Polka tool is really simple to use, I have been using it for my every nail art designs. You can get many different size polka tips. Here is an image you will see 4 sizes but I will use only 2 different sizes. The alternative for polka tool is gel pen, toothpick or thin needle etc.

2. Nail Paints For Nail Art

You can see nail paints that are in pastel and neon colors. For this polka art, I have used different shades like Orange (VOV), Yellow (Makeover), Green (Colorbar), Blue (Teen Beauty), Pink (Nykaa). You can also use available nail polishes at home but remember to pick only neon colors. These colors will be used for the centre polka dot.

3. Highlighter For Nail Art

These two colors are a major part of this manicure nail art design. Here Maroon red (Makeover) polish is used for a base coat and white (Teen Beauty) polish is used for flower polka. If Maroon color polish is not available to you then try white as your base coat.

4. Nail Base Color

As you can see I have applied maroon nail paint as the base coat. When you will apply any base coat be careful of not mess with your cuticles. To avoid this you can follow this method, push your side cuticles downward before applying nail polish. Apply two coats of maroon color because double coat hides thin lines. Wait until it gets dry perfectly.

5. White Polka Design

In this step, we will use the polka dot tool to make beautiful flowers. Here I have covered only the tips to create a floral part. I have used two size polka tool first one is the medium size to create this French floral tips. Size of polka depends upon your nail size. Make your nail tips more symmetrical by adding polka on nail tips.  

6. Center Polka Dots

Here it’s come the end of art, now I have used my all pastel and neon color to complete manicure. Drop the nail polish on nail art tray than pick the nail polish on the doting tool. Now gently apply the centre dot on each flower, use five different colors for each fingernail. Once you are done with this seal your nail art design with top coat.
