Beauty Trend: Polka Dot Nails

I was obsessed with Kate Spade’s fall presentation as a whole. But when it came to beauty I could not get over the Deborah Lippmann polka dot manicures! Dots are a huge this season. And nails are an inexpensive way to hop on the trend.

Instead of replicating the black and white version, I was inspired by Kenley Collin’s colorful designs on Project Runway.  My white and hot pink mani even made me dress Kenley-esqe.  I mixed prints, went ultra girlie and slipped on cat-eye frames for a retro finish.

That’s what I love about beauty trends. They inspire you when getting dressed.

Tip: When doing the manicure at home, make sure to let your base color dry completely before attempting the polka dots. Then, seal the two layers with a top coat to avoid chipping.
