Guest Post - DIY Beauty : Make Your Own Dotting Tool For Nail Art

Chance upon TheBeautyDepartment.com on Pinterest ( if you do not know, read this post: I’m on Pinterest ) and found some really cool stuff and I’m sharing one from them now.

If you like to paint your own nails and explore creative ways of doing it, I’m sure you will know about the dotting tool. Prices for such dotting tools vary depending on where you buy them. But why buy it if you can easily make your own with resources you probably already have in your home? Don’t know how? Let’s find out.

Quote from TheBeautyDepartment.com :

1. Get a straight pin. You’ll notice there are different sizes when you’re at a fabric store ( we used superfine for this ).

2. Get a number 2 pencil with an eraser or one of those retractable erasers as seen above.

3. Insert the pin into the eraser. Try to keep it straight. If you push it into the eraser and notice it’s crooked, just bend it a little to center it. That will insure you get a perfect dot every time.

4. Dip + dot.
