For October, I wanted to use polishes in fall colors and do something that is fun & easy. While I’ve featured a spotted manicure before (here), this time I decided to try two different colored dots and make them large enough that they actually stand up off the nail, giving it a nice texture. All the tools you’ll need are shown above – pick 3 polishes of your choice (one will be your base coat and the other two for dots) and 2 round-ended toothpicks (a bobby pin also works great). Here’s a guide for recreating at home:

So just and FYI….thee Lauren Conrad just pinned your manicure 🙂
I love it! It's such a gorgeous mani for fall 🙂
I've been able to do a quick and easy dot manicure using a dried up Sharpie marker. I pool a small amount of polish on to paper and dip the marker into it and then make the dot on my nail. Using a regular sized pen helps me control the application better. I absolutely LOVE your color combination!
