Polka dot nails are simple and cute. To complete a pink and yellow polka dot manicure that is perfect for spring, you will need pink and yellow nail polishes of your choice.

You will also need a dotting tool to make the designs and a clear nail polish to use as a base and top coat. To recreate this look, you will use your pink nail polish as the base color and yellow polish to create the polka dots. Here’s how to create cute pink and yellow, polka dot nails in four simple steps:

Paint one, thin and even coat of clear nail polish onto your nails. This is the base coat that will prevent your nails from being stained by the pink polish. Allow your base coat to dry completely.

Apply one or two coats of your pink nail polish and allow your nails to dry thoroughly.

Use your dotting tool and yellow nail polish to create small polka dots randomly across the surface of each fingernail you wish to have polka dot designs on.

Once all of your dots dry completely, seal in your spring nail look with clear nail polish.
