Pinned It, Made It! Monday ~ Easy-Peasy Polka Dot Nails

Good morning, everyone!  :)  It's been a long time since I've participated in Pinned It, Made It! Monday, a linky party hosted by my mama over at her blog, Country Girl at Home.  I'm glad to be participating again!  :)  Pinned It, Made It! Monday encourages bloggers to share what they've been pinning and making via Pinterest!  :)


In the past year or so, I've started doing more with my nails.  And as I've tried to tackle some of the more difficult patterns and such, I've had a hard time figuring out how to easily make polka dots!  I haven't been able to find a dotting tool, toothpicks don't work very well, and while the point of a pen dipped in nail polish works somewhat, it still just didn't work that well for me.  
And then the other day I was scrolling through Pinterest and I saw this picture!

Genius, right?  Why didn't I ever think of that?  The little round part at the end of a bobbi pin is perfect for making polka dots!

So I sat down and tried it out.....


.....and it worked really well!  I love red, so I did a red-and-white color combo.


I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.  :)  It's hard for me to paint the polka dots on the right hand since I am right-handed, though.  :)


That's all for today, folks!  :)  

God bless you and have a great day,
Joy :)

Your nails turned out so cute! Of course I love the red too! And I'm not sure where you got your pretty nails, but it wasn't from me!
