The Best Polka Dot Nail Art Tutorials on YouTube

As wonderful as nail art is, it can often be difficult to DIY, especially if you’re a newbie. However, that’s not to say creating some cute designs on your nails is impossible — you just need to start off with something that’s simpler to execute, especially if you have a not-so-steady hand.

Enter polka dot nails. This classic nail art design is fairly simple to pull off… all you really need is a dotting tool (or a toothpick, Q-tip or bobby pin). Once you master the dotting, your options are endless, really. Try a negative space polka dot mani (clear tape will be your best friend for this!) if you’re feeling more daring or go extra cutesy with Minnie Mouse-inspired nails.
