Hey everyone. How are you all doing. Today I want to show you How to do your nails with Dotting Tool. I have been exploring simple nail designs for beginners lately. I also used Striping Tapes in this design. If you are looking for a design with minimal art work, then try this one. It is simple and fast to complete. I have two different ideas incorporated in this Nail Art. I made dotted flower design as accent and Red Nail tips on other fingernails. Let’s get started with this Dotting Tool Nails and Striping Tape Design.

Simple Nail Designs For Beginners

Items and Tools I Used

  • Base Coat Nail Polish
  • Peach Color Nail Polish – Julie G Nail Polish, Freshly Squeezed
  • Red Nail Polish – Bonita Salon Nail Polish True Diva
  • Red Acrylic Paint
  • Green Rhinestones
  • Nail Art Dotting Tool
  • Nail Art Striping Tape
  • A pair of Scissors
  • Top Coat Nail Polish

How I did the Nail Design

Start by applying base coat polish on all the nails to prevent yellow stain and enhancing the staying power of your manicure. Let the nails dry and then paint all the nails with Julie G Freshly Squeezed nail polish. This is such subtle and classic color. Click Here to see the full review and swatches.

Let’s start with the striping tape design. Cut a small piece of striping tape and place it on the nail tip. Insert one more piece parallel to the first tape. Placing two Striping tapes will create a straight and clean line under the french tip. Make sure the ends are well secured.

Take the red nail Polish and paint it over the nail tips. After you are done painting the nail, remove the sticker as quickly as possible while the polish is still wet. You will see a crisp and clean red tip. I used True Diva by Bonita Salon Nail Polish. Absolutely love this polish. It has a gorgeous Satin finish to it.

Now on to the Accent Nail Design. Dip the smaller end of your dotting tool in red acrylic paint and get prepared to make easy flower design. Make four dots in diamond shape to create the flower. I made four flowers on my nail. If you have longer or short nails, make more or less flowers according to your nail shape and size.

Let the paint dry and then add some clear polish/top coat. Insert red rhinestones in the center of four dots. Seal the whole design with a final layer of Top Coat. You’re done with this simple Dotting Tool and Striping Tape Nail Art.
