Create Your Own Dotting Tool

Dotting Tool is a key tool when you want to design your nails. 
I'm so excited! Lets get started! 
  1. 1.)Get a straight pin. You’ll notice there are different sizes when you’re at a fabric store (we used superfine for this).
  2. 2.)Get a number 2 pencil with an eraser or one of those retractable erasers as seen above.
  3. 3.) Insert the pin into the eraser. Try to keep it straight. If you push it into the eraser and notice it’s crooked, just bend it a little to center it. That will insure you get a perfect dot every time.
  4. 4.)Dip + dot!
Here are some of my favorite dotting tool designs that we found while surfing around!

    1. Maybe you could do nails with all the sized dots and colors. That would look so cute

  2. I love the first image of the spotty nails, they are FANTASTIC. Once I'd get to my right hand I know I'd mess it up, such a shame *sad face*.

  4. This is great! I've never tried to do dots, I'm too impatient, but I was considering doing it soon and couldn't think of what to use other than a toothpick. But this is even better. Tack so mycket!
