What Is a Nail Dotting Tool?

Nail dotting tools are used commonly to create dots or lines using nail polish on nails. The tools generally consist of a double-ended stick with a different-sized ball on each end.

Dotting tools are versatile and can be used to create simple dots or lines or fill in larger areas. Dotting tools can also be used to create leopard or camouflage prints. Nail dotting tools can also be used to pick up rhinestones or studs after they are dipped in clear nail polish.

After dipping the nail dotting tool into the nail polish, gently touch the tool to your nail to create a dot. Gently drag the nail dotting tool along your nail to create a line.
