Nail Art of the Day: Pink with Black Polka Dots

Color Club Vintage Couture

Pastel pink with black polka dot nail art

Good morning and Happy Tuesday! How was everyone's weekend? It's been super busy at Steph's Closet. In the next month or so, I plan on revamping the entire site for my lovely readers. So expect user friendly searches along with cool features and loads of new pictures in my Photo Gallery. Please bear with me in this long transition.

Let's move on to the next order of business, Nails! And today I'm bringing you my favorite nail art, cute lil' Polka Dots using my handy dotting tool! For this design I used Color Club's Vintage Couture nail polish and black acrylic paint for the dots.

Have you guys picked up a dotting tool from Sally's yet? Don't be intimidated, it's super easy I promise! You can even apply with your non dominant hand.

Check out one swatch below.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

This is gorgeous! I love the pop of this color, and the dots make it stand out even more!

Soo cute! I love this!

I'm loving the color combo. I've tried this on my toes but not my hands yet. I used black as a base coat then use my Sally Hansen art pen in hot pink for the dots.

Sounds so cute!!

Ooh, I love those! I was actually at Sally's last week on Thursday looking at the dotting tool and ready to buy it. But I have one question: How long do the nail beds have to be in order to apply nail art to the nails and make them look good? Because I'm afraid mine may be too short, even though I've been growing them out.

Hi Samantha,
Your nails can be ultra short, it don't matter. Polka Dots look great on all shapes and sizes! :)

My favorite combination of colors is pink and black. I always love your polka dot manicures! So adorable.

Thanks so much Lucy!

Do you know of a sally Hansen colour that would match this pink?

Hi Peach,
Unfortunately, No I don't. Sorry I couldn't be more help :(

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
