10 Minimal Mani Devotee-Friendly Dot Nail Idea

Electric Dot

This colorful manicure has delicate dots and a gentle French tip. Red and yellow make this design pop. 

Burgundy and Black Dot

This manicure is perfect for fall with its burgundy French tips and black dots. To achieve this look, use Lights Lacquer Nail Polish ($11) in Tuxedo Mask and OPI Nail Polish ($11) in Got the Blues for Red.

Mismatched Dot

Mismatched manicures—like this one—are always striking. One hand bears dazzling black dots and the other multi-color stripes. Strange combo, but it works.

Black and Yellow

This basic design with sheer black dots and marigold yellow is excellent for adding color. Use Cirque Colors Nail Polish ($13) in Nirvana and NSFW Jelly to replicate this look.

Brown Dot

With a nude background, the colorful dots shine. The brown dots make this nail fall-appropriate.

Faded French Dot

A faded French tip gives the manicure a fresh look. The look is luxurious and unusual with black dots on each cuticle. To achieve diffused nails, use CND Shellac Power Polish ($15) in Powder My Nose and Cream Puff.

Classic Dot

What better way to decorate short nails for fall than with basic nail art? Sundays Studio's high-contrast style has a nude, glossy base and a nicely placed black dot.

Baby Blue

Another nail design showing how beautiful nude polish with color is. Baby blue specks at each nail base are carefully positioned.

Green Dot

Though more complex, this design is simplistic. Beautiful green French tips and small dots make this manicure stand out.

Ombré Dot

Add ombré to each nail to enhance a delicate dot manicure. Brown hues were employed to produce a gradient dot effect.
