Begin with a white base so that all your colors pop!

Layer stripes

Using your small brush and working one color at a time, paint a gray stripe across the top of each nail. Let it dry a bit and then layer on a peach stripe right below, making sure to make the edges ragged. Skip a spot to let the white show through and then paint a stripe of gray, then dark pink and light pink. Paint a few marks here and there over the gray stripes with the light blue polish for dimension. Let dry and finish with a top coat.
