Bubbly Nails

unnamed Hello! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been quite busy. I am going to show you a new updo – these nails! I call these Bubbly Nails. They aren’t that hard. Let’s get started.


– base coat (optional)

– light pastel polish

– black nail polish

– dotting tool or black nail pen

– top coat or matte coat

– cotton

– nail polish remover

First, you can paint a base coat. This step is optional. It just prolongs the life of your nails and protects them.

Paint on the pastel polish. I used a light blue. We are using this color so the black really stands out.

Take out the black polish. On the tips of the nails, add some big circles. You can do that by adding small strokes and then evening them out. Once that dries, take out your dotting tool or black nail pen. I used a nail pen. These are really convenient and aren’t that expensive. Over the big circles, paint medium sized circles. Over those, create smaller and smaller circles until it comes to dots. As you can see, we have created a circle gradient. If you want, you can create a design on the ring finger. I used my nail pen to create a line with loop-di-doos. Then, I filled in some of the circles.

Last but not least, finish it with a sealing coat. I used a matte coat (partly because I was running low on my glossy top coat) for a cooler touch.

And that’s it! I really hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Stay bubbly, and don’t forget to comment!
