To do this manicure you will need:
- Base color. I'm using an Essie polish called Sweet &Delicious
- Metal colored polish. I'm using another Essie polish called Pin the Tassel
- Clear top coat. Using my favorite Ulta brand one
- A dotting tool
- Nail polish remover and q-tips to clean up your edges
First, paint your base color. This particular Essie polish only needed one coat but I did a second just to make sure it was smooth. Let it dry completely before you move onto the next step.
I find it easiest to place a drop of polish onto a piece of paper and dip my dotting tool into that. Using the larger dotter, place a line of evenly spaced dots in the middle of your nail from the base to the tip. This should look like a line of rivets. Repeat this step on each nail.
Once dry, top with clear nail polish, then clean up your edges with the q-tips and polish remover. I really love how this looks, though it feels more Fall than Spring with the particular colors I used. But that's the fun of these manicures, you can choose any color combination you want.
