Dippin Dots nail polish tutorial

My Dippin Dot Nails!!!Yeah, I know that my hands are in an akward position:)
Hey everyone! This week I was feeling summery, so when I looked at all of my nail polishes, I wanted to use all of the bright, summery colors. While figuring out what to do, I stumbled upon a couple blogs , like Amber's , who did a dippin dot themed nail art that I loved and could include all of my neon colors in. Score! Also, I just bought some dotting tools from Amazon that I wanted to try, so I was also excited that I could use them instead of my usual dotting tool (the head of a pin stuck onto a pencil's eraser). Yipee! The nail polishes that I used were: Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Nail Polish in Snappy Sorbet, Milani's Neon Polish in PINK ROCKS, Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in Mellow Yellow., Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in Blue Me Away, Sally Hansen's Intsta-Dri Nail Polish in Clearly Quick, Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Nail Polish Base Coat, and Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in Mellow Yellow.
Tutorial:
  1. Paint a clear base coat of nail polish to lengthen the wear time and strengthen your nails. I'm using Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Base Coat. Let dry.
  2. Pour a small amount (about quarter sized) of each nail polish color on a painter's pallet if you can, and use that to make the nail polish more easily accessable for the dots.
  3. Pick up some paint with your dotting tool, and dot a circle onto your nail. Continue doing this, varying the dot colors, until your nail is covered. Let dry. 
  4. Seal in your new gorgeous nails with a clear coat. I love Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri nail polish in Clearly Quick.
That's it! I love this nail look, and whenever I look at my nails, they make me hungry for Dippin Dots! Thanks for reading!
