Base coat

Start with a black base coat on all the nails except the ring finger.

Tweed print

Using the larger of the two brushes, paint some broad gray strokes both vertically and horizontally. Using the smaller of the two brushes, paint some thinner white strokes over those. Make them in a haphazard fashion so it doesn't look too perfect.

Paint a blue coat on your ring finger. While it's still wet, dip it into the flocking powder, covering the entire nail. Gently press the powder into the nail and blow away the excess. When it's dry, you can lightly brush off extra furry parts from around your nail. Finish the tweed nails with top coat.
