Take a step back from fancy with our 4 step simple nail art design

I can’t help it — I’m a lover of all things minimal! I love the simple things in life, nothing too bold or attention seeking for me. So when I saw that one of the beauty looks from the latest fashion shows around the globe featured this simple nail art look, I knew that I had to try it out for myself.

It doesn’t take long, is super easy and there’s so many variations that you can take on! Next time I’ll definitely be using a few different contrasting colours, and maybe even a different shaped brush to get some smaller dots in — stay tuned, it might be my next nail tutorial! But for now I am loving the neutral base with a pop of burgundy. Perfectly suited to my Autumn wardrobe!

What you’ll need:

  • Coloured nail lacquer (I used ‘Susan’ from The Nail Lab)
  • A top and base coat (I used one from Boe Professional)
  • An old paint brush or eye shadow brush


  1. Start off with clean nails that you have filed and buffed to your liking. Apply a base coat and let this dry.
  2. Dip the end of your brush into the pot of coloured nail lacquer.
  3. Apply the end of the brush to your nail, leaving a dot.
  4. Once the dots are dry, apply a top coat. This is important to bind the dot to the base coat and make sure it doesn’t chip off.
