    You can use a dry ballpoint pen as well.
    I used toothpicks as a dotting tool before as well. :) to make pollka dot nails.

    I love the soft colors… thanks for the additional tip of using a pin as opposed to buying a dotting tool…

    Hi Azraa & Diva. An easy way to create this look without a professional dotting tool is to use a pin. Push a pin into an eraser so that you have a solid handle, dot the head of the pin into your nail varnish and lightly press it onto your nails – works like a charm!

    This is super pretty! I’m not a big fan of nail art but this is so subtle and tasteful, I’m keen to give it a bash.

    I love this, it looks so easy to do, might do it on my toes though as I am not a huge fan of polish on my fingers.
