How to create Dalmatian Nails!

After seeing LLYMLRS dalmatian nails, I knew I had to recreate them (obviously in my own little style). I think they're a simple but effective design and they are very on trend. I don't know if you've noticed but animal prints seem to be pretty big, a key trend for A/W 2011.

To create dalmatian nails you will need the following:
  • White nail varnish
  • Black nail varnish
  • Dotting tools (or cocktail sticks)
  • Top coat 
Do not feel like you have to rush out and buy fancy tools for your nail art as cocktail sticks work as great nail art tools. The great thing about using cocktail sticks too is that you can just dispose of them in the bin, cleaning dotting tools is a pain in the neck! The only reason why I bought dotting and nail art tools is because I do nail art on a daily basis.

If you would like to create dalmatian nails all you have to do is follow my nice and easy steps.

1.) Apply the white nail varnish to your nails. I would recommend applying 2 coats as white nail varnish tends to have a thin consistency.  If you have a matte white nail varnish then 1 coat may be enough.

2.) Using the black nail varnish and a large dotting tool, dot a few large dots on your finger nails (excluding your ring finger nail).
Using the black nail varnish and a small dotting tool, dot a few small dots around the larger dots.

3.) Let's draw 2 paw prints on our ring finger nail. To do this use the black nail varnish and a large dotting tool, then dot 2 big dots on your ring finger nail. Once dry, apply 4 small dots at the top of each large dot, again you can do this by using the black nail varnish and a small dotting tool.

4.) Once dry apply a top coat.

If you prefer watching videos, here's the video tutorial for this design...
