Begin with a blue base coat on all fingers except your ring finger, which you’ll paint white.

Step 2. Dot

Using your dotting tool, paint some alternating pink dots on all the blue nails. Then in the spaces in between the pink dots, make some silver dots.

Cut a piece of Scotch tape into thin strips and place two of them diagonally across your white nail. Make sure it’s pressed down well and paint a layer of blue on top of the whole nail. Let it dry and then remove the tape. Using the striping brush, paint two thin silver stripes along the nail. Let your nails dry and then finish with a top coat.
