Start with a coral base coat. Let it fully dry and then place one page protector per nail over the top of the nail.


Paint & peel

Paint two coats of yellow over the bottom half of the nail and let dry.

With the orange, paint a line over where the yellow and coral meet. Then paint the moon of the nail orange also. When the orange is dry, paint a white line and smaller moon above the orange. You'll then finish the citrus design with two vertical lines connecting the white line and moon. Finish with a top coat.
