YouTube Nail Art Week - Polka Dots Stripes

Hi everyone!

So with nothing new to swatch right now, I decided to come up with a new week-long series of nail art! I've done Pinterest Week before, when I recreated designs that I pinned to my Nail Inspiration Board, so this time I'm doing YouTube Week, where I'll find seven nail art tutorials on YouTube and recreate the designs!

I'm excited about this because I know there's so many great nail artists out there to choose tutorials from. The hard part is going to be narrowing it down to seven!

The first one I've chose is a tutorial by the user PackAPunchPolish. I actually wasn't a subscriber until now, but as I was looking up which tutorials I would recreate, this one came up in the recommended section to the side of the video I was watching! How convenient, right?

For some of the tutorials, I might switch some colours up to better suit my own style, but I really liked the colours she used in her original design, so I went with those.

First off I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White. Then I used striping tape to section off four horizontal sections on each of my nails. Then using a small dotting tool, I added the dots in between each piece of tape using China Glaze Creative Fantasy, Def Defying, Escaping Reality and Hanging in the Balance. All four of those are from the Cirque du Soleil Collection.

I really like how this turned out! I've done my fair share of polka dot manis, but I don't think I would have ever thought to incorporate striping tape into one!

Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoy this series!
