NOTD: Surreal Polka Dots

This is a really simple NOTD where I fancied something a little different than just plain nails, but nothing time-consuming or complicated! I started with Nail Envy as a base coat, followed by two coats of Maybelline's 'Surreal', which I seem to have posted about a lot - probably because I love it! I then used a medium-sized dotting tool to make a border of dots around half of each nail, using Models Own 'Snow White'. I finished with a coat of Jacava London's UV Inhibitor Top Coat* to protect my design and give a shine, and this is how it looks:

What do you think? Are you a fan of simple nail art? What's your favourite top coat?

  1. Oooh these are pretty - sometimes the simple designs are most effective! I hardly ever attempt nail art, it's hard enough to get a plain polish on neatly! :)
