Yes, we’re ready to talk about THAT dress. You know, the one which has always clogging up our news-feeds all summer , and every gal pal we know seems to own. Zara’s dalmatian dress has got the breed barking with their perfectly flowy, mid length, ruffled hem dress. Somehow, Zara has mastered the art of making everyone look great in this dress. And of course, mylee being mylee, we figured the best way to honour the dress of the summer is to turn it into the perfect dalmatian manicure! 

Step 1: Before heading straight into this fun nail art, prep your nails thoroughly. Your nails must be neat and clean, the mylee way! For a step by step guide on how to prepare your nails, read all about it as spoken by style guru, Stephanie Staunton.  

Step 2: Once you have prepped your nails, move onto using mylee Base Coat Gel Polish. This step is super important as it lays out the foundation of your polish, and also offers a protective layer against the pigmented colours. Once applied, cure nails for 30-60 seconds. Before curing, prevent the Base Coat Gel Polish slipping on your skin, after curing this will be extremely tough to remove.

Step 3: Now, this is where the fun begins! Using Break The Ice or Ice Queen, begin to paint. A top trick to get an even flawless coverage is to start in the middle. Using the brush, proceed a clean sweep in the middle of your bed, and then repeat on both sides of the strip. Do this with thin strokes the first-time round. Once this is done, cure for 30-60 seconds. Follow this step one more time before moving on to creating the spots.

Step 4: Zara have totally mastered the formula of creating abnormal polka dots. However, we think this should be on personal taste. Using dotting tool, you can either create small or large dots. We were inspired by Zara’s petit randomly placed dots, so we began this process by placing small dots first, and then going in with larger dots in-between spaces.  Cure nails for 30-60 seconds once you’re happy with the design.

Step 5: Last but not least, finish off your design but glazing the your nail with mylee Top Coat Gel Polish. Cure this last one for 30-60 seconds.

Step 6: The top may be slightly tacky. Remove this layer is by wiping the nails with a Lint Free Wipe soaked in Prep and Wipe. Finish off your ultra-cool nails by nourishing your cuticles with the Apricot Nail and Cuticle Oil , to keep them hydrated and healthy.

And voila, if you the perfect Dalmatian nails to rock you through the season!
