Red and White Polka Dots for GOT Polish Challenge: Dots

Oh, the best laid schemes of mice and men… This week’s design isn’t what it started out as, but in the end is a simple polka dots pattern with a cheerfully bright, classic red. Simple, easy, quick – I wonder why I had planned to do anything else.

What I used:

Supplies for Red and White Polka Dot design by Shelly Najjar at Ten Tiny Paintings for GOT Polish Challenge: Dots

  • base coat (not shown)
  • Red Red (414) by Wet n Wild
  • white (unnamed, no number) by Kiss Colors (part of French mani kit)
  • 1 mm dotting tool
  • generic quick dry top coat (not shown)

What I did:

Step 1: Base coat, then 1-2 coats of red. For the accent nail, use 2-3 coats of white instead.

Step 2: Using the dotting tool, add polka dots evenly spaced over the nail, in opposite color of base color. Top coat and done.
