Polka dots can be sophisticated, especially when they’re paired with this simple manicure. WGSN Beauty Assistant Emma Grace Bailey tests the latest nails trend
Sometimes a little simplicity is all you need, which is why I’ll be recreating this subtle dash of nail art in no time at all. A polka dot for the more sophisticated palette, colour paring is key.
What: One of Olivia Palermo’s latest shades for Ciate – Napa Valley – spread liberally across the nail with a simple dot of golden lacquer placed strategically on three. Use Bobbi Brown’s nail art tool kit to perfect that circle.
Why: I tried to get on board with polka dots, I really did, but this is just so much more me. Dotty but not spotty.
Cons: Have a little patience before applying that contrasting dash of colour. Without it, the two mix together into an unflattering shade of puce.
