Amy Valentine Inspired Dot Nails

So recently I have been massively fan-fangirling Amy Valentine and her style, and this nail look really caught my eye in one of her latest videos. Its so simple but looks really effective so is perfect for all the lazy girls out there who want pretty nails without the effort!

Things You Will Need:
Nude Nail Polish- I am using Barry M's Gelly polish in Lychee
Black (or any dark) Nail Polish- I am using Barry M's Matte Black
A Kirby Grip
Clear Top Coat- I am using Champney's Clear Base and Top Coat


Without stating the obvious, begin with clean nails, and put a base coat on if you so wish (I didn't because the colour I am using is so light). Then add two coats of your chosen nude/light colour. I am not actually a huge fan of this Gelly nail polish, I find it too thick for my short nails and it makes them look even more stumpy. So I added a little drop of nail polish remover to make it slightly thinner (that's a life hack right there).


Then get your kirby grip (or bobby pin, whichever you call it) and dip it into the black polish and then simply dip it onto the middle of your nail bed to leave a little dot. Try not to get too much polish on there otherwise the dots end up getting bigger and bigger! Also, if you are using the same black nail polish as me, make sure you give the kirby grip a wipe every now and then because the Matte paint dried really quickly and gets a bit clumpy.



Then just add your base coat to make them nice and shiny and you're all done! Easy!




Hope you like!

  2. I really like the color combination. The dot gives it a little oomph without being distracting.
