Use the small brush and white polish to make the taco shapes on all nails. Let dry, then cover with the light yellow polish, leaving a bit of white showing through for texture. Add some dark yellow polish on top of that for more dimension.

To create the filling, use the dotting tool to dot some brown polish on the bottom side of each taco. Then use the brush to make small lime green brushstrokes on the top of the tacos for lettuce, going down to meet the brown "meat." Brush on a few darker green strokes and then make red dots for the "tomatoes."
