WhatIWore: I never thought I’d be one for polka dotted nails, but after seeing the Deborah Lippman nails for the Kate Spade New York Fall 2012 presentation, I knew I had to try them for my own.

Initially I was going to go for a navy base and just white dots, but a multi colored polka dot piece of fabric inspired me to try multiple colors.  So here’s how I did this manicure.

1. Start with a navy base (two coats of No Limits from Nicole by OPI).

2. Next I went color by color to add tiny dots. I used the wide end of a toothpick (a clean stick for each color). Instead of going straight from the bottle to my nails, I removed excess paint by dabbing it onto a scratch piece of paper.

3. After letting the dots try, I used Sally Hansen No Chip Top Coat.
