After being hidden away in thick socks for months, my feet are super pale at the start of sandal season every year. Throwing on a little nail polish is the quickest and cutest way to make them look a little less ghostly! And while I’m painting my toe nails, it just makes good sense to do my fingers too, you know?

I usually just paint one color and call it a day, but then I found this inexpensive and easy-to-use dot tool that lets you add fun designs to your nails even if you have shaky hands! I decided to do a nude and metallic daisy for my first nail look of the season, and it couldn’t have been easier to pull off. People have literally been grabbing my hands and asking where I got them done!

Supplies:
nude, white and gold nail polish
nail dotting tool

Start by painting an opaque layer of nude polish. It took a few coats for my nails to really look like the color in the bottle.

Once the nude polish is fully dry, use the small end of the dot tool to add white daisy centers. I dipped the tool right into the polish bottle, and then dotted away! Start with just a little polish on the tool until you get a sense of how much you need—the tool is pretty forgiving and you can go over the dots a second time if they aren’t big or bold enough. Use the large end of the tool to add your petal dots!

And that’s it! The tool is so simple to use. This look only took a couple minutes longer than painting one color nails. I’ve never gotten so many questions/compliments about my nails—I can’t imagine ever painting plain nails again! Next time I want to make little sunflowers on a white background. What designs would you add to your nails? xo, Kayleigh
