The first coat was a clear base coat, which I always put on, to protect my nails from the nail polish.
Then I put a layer of the pink and waited for that to dry completely.
Then there was the silver. I dipped a toothpick into the polish and slid the silver across my nail. I made sure to apply the silver randomly, and in the bits where it was too smooth and there was too much silver, I drew through parts of it with the tooth pick, revealing a line of pink underneath. This resulted in the sort of zebra print random bodies of silver with the background of pink.
Last, of course, I put on the clear overcoat, to preserve the design for longer and give my nails a shiny smooth finish.
Here's some of my other designs...
Sorry. These pictures aren't very clear.
I used toothpicks to make these dots...
The pink here was watery and smudged into the green, which I was too impatient to wait for to dry.
This isn't really a design but I made the blue sparkly with a sparkly white sheen on top.
I didn't do the next one myself, but my friend did. She says she followed a tutorial.
Just a little colour mixing: a thin layer of silver over a light blue to make a bluey white.
And sometimes clear nail polish is all you need.
