I started with removing my prior polish, trimming my nails, buffing my heels and all the essentials that you receive when you go to the spa. Don’t neglect your toes people, toes need love too!
I’m a huge fan of Essie nail polish and I love that it’s available at Target. I picked up this fun and simple color called Mademoiselle because I knew I wanted my design to be a little more vibrant but the background to be a bit mute.
I separated my toes with cotton balls and painted two coats of the Essie nail polish on my toes. The easiest way to paint your toes is three brush strokes, starting from left to right.
After my nail polish had dried I picked out a few colors of acrylic paint I had.
I then gathered a few bobby pins and pushed them back so that I could use them as my “brushes”.
By simply dipping my bobby pin in the acrylic paint and then dotting the bobby pin on my toe nail I began to create polka dots on my toe nails.
That is how I easily created flip flop ready toe nails!
I want to thank Amy for letting me stop by today. If you’d like to visit with some more here is where you can find me:
What a darling idea! The wheels are turning for how to adapt this idea for the Fourth of July. Thanks, Lauren!

How cute is this? And you saved money besides. I wouldn’t have thought of the bobby pin, but it worked perfectly.
