Hearts and Polka Dots Nail Art Tutorial

I’m very excited for my first ever nail art tutorial. Actually, I’m much into nail arts these days and I love doing it without tools. I have always loved funky designs and mellow colors on nails. What appeals to me the most are animated designs with a degree of ‘cuteness’ in it. So, here’s a tutorial that shows my love for heart shapes and polka dots!

Beside the nail paints, all I’ve used in this nail art is a dried-up ball pen and a piece of cardboard paper. It’s quirky, fun and above all very easy and quick. Let’s go through the steps!

 Materials required

  • Golden nailpaint
  • Red nailpaint
  • Maroon nailpaint
  • Coral nailpaint
  • Pink nailpaint
  • Cardboard paper
  • Dried-up ball pen
  • Cotton swabs
  • Nail polish remover


  • Paint all your nails with the golden nail color and allow them to dry for 1-2 minutes. I’ve applied 2 coats here.

  • Meanwhile, take a small piece of cardboard paper and cut out a heart shape out of it. You can cut out any of your favourite shapes like stars, triangles, squares and so on.

  • Place that piece of paper at the middle of your nail and hold it firmly.

  • Apply nail paint over it and then remove the paper carefully.

  • Similarly, repeat it for all the fingers using various colored nail paint. I’ve used red paint for the thumb and middle finger; maroon nail paint for index finger and little finger and pink nail paint for the ring finger.

  • As soon as the heart shapes dry, it’s time to use the dried-up ball pen to make polka dots on it. I made random dots with the coral nail paint for all my fingers except for the ring finger, where I’ve used maroon nail paint to make the polka dots.
