Easy Nail Art for Beginners

1 2 3

Ah yes…nail art. Sheer utter of the words can make some gals a nervous wreck. But, the truth is, you don’t have to be a professional nail tech to crank out beautiful nail art designs.

I have terrible coordination and can still do pretty decent nail designs. Let’s do the easiest nail art techniques: polka dots and designs using a nail art pen.


-Nail polishes of your choice (see our Beauty at Its Best favorite nail polishes here>>)

-Dotting tool (you can find affordable ones at transdesign.com and Sally Beauty Supply)

-Nail pen (I’m using Color Club’s Nail Art pen)

Be sure that your base nail polish color is dry before attempting any designs. “Almost dry” isn’t good enough.

    I love the way nail art looks when done well, but for someone like me with shaky hands its a little frustrating. Sinful colors has some great nail art pens that I would recommend and they are cheap.

  • penelope:

    I’ve done polka dots before and a easier way to do the polka dots is to use a nail pen. Not only that but you can use the nail pen for other things too like drawing lines or letters on your nails.
