How to Create a Polka Dot Bow Nail Art Design

Learn how to create a bows with polka dots nail design in this Howcast nail tutorial.


Hi I'm Miss Pop, a New York City based nail artist, and we are here at my favorite bar/nail salon. Beauty Bar, right here on 14th St in New York City. Today I'm going to show you my favorite nail designs and let you in on some secrets. So lets get started.
Now we're going to do black and white polka dots with big red bows. Okay you're going to start by just using a motter with the red; just simply dotting the middle of the bow. Now just brush on the sides of the bow. Oh it's a little Pee Wee Herman bow tie! Okay now with my really thin brush I'm going to go in with black. I'm just outlining it with a little bit of black to make it pop. So I'm just going in and cleaning it up. Now I'm bringing that dotter back in that I used for the center of the bow with some black on it to "polkadot" this out. Again don't worry about what you get on the side; it comes off so easy with an orange stick or just washing your hands. Just add a little top coat, clean it up around the edges and your good to go with bows and polka dots.
