Dotting tools are an important staple to have in any nail artist’s tool kit. You can find a set of dotting tools online for less than $5, but if you’re in a pinch, any of these items work just as well.

A toothpick is a very inexpensive way to create tiny dots on your nails and it’s also very useful for picking up rhinestones and glitter to place on your nails. If you want the dots to be a bit bigger, a bobby pin will do the trick. Regular or mechanical pencils are also a quick way to replace dotting tools.

One of the most important ways to make your manicure look beautiful is taking care of your hands, cuticles, and nails. Using great products can improve how your nails look and can get your polish to last longer. Over time, I have used many different products, and here are some of my favorites!

1. CND SolarOil: I love this cuticle oil because it doesn’t make my cuticles greasy—and it smells great.

2. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream: Just recently I started using this product and it’s amazing. I really have noticed a difference in my skin. It goes on very thick (almost like Vaseline), but instantly replenishes moisture.
