About Nail Dotting Tools

The first time you try to put perfect eyes on your nail art drawing of a kitten, you realize there has to be a better way. The answer is to use a nail dotting tool, which gives you perfect results every time. The tool itself is a pen-like tool, with a metal nib at one end. That nib has a small ball that you dip in wet nail polish and then apply to your nail. These are also handy in marbling techniques, since you can use the tip of the tool to pull the nail polish through the water. You can find nail dotting tool sets that have tips of different diameters to give you a wide range of options in your nail art. If you only need one nail polish dotting tool, it is a good idea to stick with one of a medium diameter to give you the most use from the tool. With the huge inventory on eBay, you can find just about any size nail dotting tool that you need to add to your nail art tool collection.
