My name is Natalie Hua. I'm a medical student, a DIY-er and a craft-er. Medicine is my main road but art has always been keeping me sane. I enjoy sharing my creations as well as learning from many others who share the same interest.
Just wanna quickly share with you this simple polka dots manicure i did while traveling. When I’m away, I only bring a 2 bottles of nail polishes with me, one neutral and one color. As you can see here, a nude pink color and emerald green. These colors go with most of outfits that i brought with me and they’re both from Brucci by the way. And when I feel like I want a playful manicure, I can combine them. This is one of those times. I didn’t even bring my dotting tool with me so I used the end of a Q-tip. You can use a toothpick, an old pen or the end of a bobby pin but I was looking for a bigger circular shape for this one. The bigger dots cover my nails quickly so I don’t have to spend too much time while traveling.
I started by placing a row of dots down the center of my nail (like how i did here- a more sophisticated polka dot design) and then space the rest of the dots accordingly. The Q-tip gives the dots a rather blotchy and water coloring look, which i like.
