We recently got our hands on our very own nail dotter, and you could say we’ve gone a little nail art crazy.
We’ve always enjoyed experimenting with our nails. A fresh coat of lacquer is the easiest and most economical way of switching up your look. We love a nude, understated shade when we’re going for something more polished, and often reach for our pastels and bold varnishes when we need an added pop. But anyone can paint on nail polish straight from the bottle. When we really want to bring a personalised flare to an outfit, nothing beats nail art. You nails are the perfect canvas for you to unleash your inner Picaso. In our nail art posts, everyone is always commenting how they wouldn’t be able to recreate the looks or “I’m too uncoordinated”. But that’s the beauty of DIY nail art, it can be as simple and messy as you like. Something as basic as polka dots will instantly transform your nail game, and the fact that your design is not clean and neat is what makes it so special.
You don’t need any fancy tools to get creating. We often use a bobby pin, cotton bud or paint brush to draw on our designs. Sticky tape is also your friend when it comes to DIY-ing your own nail art. But after experimenting with nail art for a number of years now, we decided to pick up a dotter. It essentially does the same job as the tip of bobby pin would, but the longer handle allows a lot more control. We’ve been having way too much fun with our new toy, so expect to see a few more nail art posts very soon.
