It's A Thing: The Polka “Not” Nail Trend

It's A Thing: The Polka “Not” Nail Trend

As a child, I was obsessed with polka dots. Any size, any color, on anything; I just absolutely loved polka dots. And I still do to this day!

While they're super adorable and basically like wearing instant cheeriness, covering yourself in polka dots can sometimes look a little kindergarten-esque.

So, I have found the next best thing, which I’m calling polka ”not” nail art. All the fun of dots, but without the 7 year-old--vibe. 

Here are three of my top picks from Instagrammers.

This is a chic(but still super playful) way of incorporating dots without going totally overboard. You can mix and match fun colors and it’s a unique look that’s not too tricky to create on your own.

These are probably my favorite and I’m going to try them out for myself ASAP. 

They remind me of the audio spectrum things that I see when my boyfriend works on making music, so if you’re a music lover or a festival-goer, they’re a definite must-try.

These nails are ultra-modern, sophisticated and they’re a great way to get your adult polka dot fix in.  You could include the accent nails, do all nails with a single dot or adorn every nail with multi-dots. Options galore!

I personally would opt for all of my nails to be as lovely as the gray accent nail here.

Go grab a pencil and start experimenting with dots. If you come up with any cool designs make sure to tag @lovelierie on Instagram so I can stop by and admire your work!
