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!

Hey! I was rockin' this look back in the mid eighties with a minni mouse t-shirt dress, leggings, jelly shoes and a white patten leather belt! LOL! I think Fergie's were more like dominoes... not much diff, but a little. Also, I did my 10 year old daughter's toenails like this last year with black and pink... too cute!

I don't really think it's slutty... if anything, I think it's a little kiddish--I did it all the time in middle school. In Little Tokyo by where I live they have nail polishes with liquid-eyeliner-type brushes so you can make designs. They have like every color ever and they're super fun.

I think I would probably try it on my toes...I work in the prehospital emergency care field and doubt that look would be accepted as professional. Cute idea though!

I do this all the time now that I figured out how my manicurist did it - but I hate black and white nails so I usually do bright colors...

I rather do the whole "matching your eyeshadow to your nail" style. Besides, I'm terribly attached to my gold nail polish.
