This nail polish collection is a seasonal color which is almost available to everyone. Here I am using Black Magic (Teen Beauty), Victoria’s Red (Teen Beauty) and White (Colorbar). With this Medium size polka tool, you can create your nail design. An alternate tool can be used like a Gel pen tip or toothpick.

2. Apply Base Coat

I have noticed that when we apply a base coat before nail polish it really stay for a longer time. When you use a good base coat, it prevents nail polish from chipping and streaky. It works as a barrier between your nail plate and nail polish. This will help your nails from getting a yellow stain and also eliminate ridges.

3. Nail Art Base Color

Once you do that apply it in the same sequence like below, keep the lighter color on the forefinger. Apply the double stroke so that nail polish brush patches get hidden properly.

You need to collect three major things like polka tool, nail art tray and cotton bowls. Today I will let you know the correct method to place your polka without any chip. Use alternative color for making polka from the base color, as shown in the image.

Add a single drop of nail polish in nail art tray than pick the color on polka tool. Gently place the polka in a straight line from the centre and on side alternatively. To avoid chipping clean your polka tool point end on every two dots. When you found the nail polish is thickened in nail art tray than add another fresh drop of nail polish for polka dot nail designs.
