How to Get Marc Jacobs Dot and Daisy Inspired Nails: 

Step 1: Pick out your favorite nail polish. Make sure that you choose colors that are complimentary to your favorite fragrance. For this tutorial, since we're pulling inspiration from our mini Marc Jacobs fragrances (Dot and Daisy), we chose to use nail polish from Butter London in RedWhite and Black

Step 2: Start by painting your nails red to use as the base color. Leave one accent nail blank so that you can paint that a different color. Apply two coats of red nail polish and allow them to dry.

Step 3: Start painting or designing your accent nail. While you are waiting for your other nails to dry, now is a good time to apply a white base color to your accent nail. Here, we chose to accent our ring finger nail with a white nail polish and gold bow to incorporate the colors from the Daisy fragrance.

Step 4: Once the red has completely dried on your nails, you can begin to add the black french tip to them. Grab your black nail polish and with one quick swipe, add a straight line of black color to the tip of your nails. This can be as thick or as thin as you would like it to be. 

Step 5: Next, use a dotting tool or a toothpick to add little dots on your nail - to symbolize the dots on a ladybug.

Step 6: Add a quick drying top coat and you're good to go!
