How-To: Solange Knowles's Polka-Dot Manicure

How-To: Solange Knowles's Polka-Dot Manicure

Call me crazy, but Solange Knowles is rapidly becoming one of my favorite celebrities — and not just because of her famous big sister. Her music is catchy, and she seems content letting big sister B be the pop superstar of the family. Plus, she's willing to take some risks with her style. Case in point: This polka-dot manicure.

If you want to recreate Solange's nails at home, here's what you'll need:

  • Black nail polish (try Sinful Colors [$1.99] in Black on Black)
  • White nail polish (like Sephora by OPI [$9] in A-ha! Moment
  • Top coat and base coat
  • Wooden toothpicks

After painting nails with a base coat, paint them with black or white polish. (For the white polish, you'll need two coats.) Then, dip a toothpick into the opposite color. Carefully place a drop of the polish on your nail, repeating until you have the pattern you want. Let nails dry for up to 30 minutes, then seal with a top coat. Easy!
