As the models stomped down Topshop Unique's Fall 2011 runway show, dalmatians officially became trendy.
But when Burberry immediately followed suit with the spotted motif , the trend transformed into a full-fledged Cruella De Vil mania.
And yes, we're really into it.
Taking a cue from Topshop's show, we decided to attempt the dalmatian-print manicure. Turns out, it was (thankfully) pretty easy!
Here's how we did it:
1. Paint two coats of a chalky white polish (think french tip white) on each nail.
2. Wait about 15 minutes for this to dry! (Be patient!)
3. Once dry, take the rubber-like end of a bobby pin and dip it into any ol' black lacquer you've got lying around. quickly press the pin to the nail, creating a simple black dot. As a general rule for varying size of spots: The more polish on the pin, the bigger the dot will be.
4. Continue spotting each nail, until it looks good to you!
