Regular polish- After letting the base boat dry, apply the first coat of polish to your toes. White for the big toe, and pink for the others. Let the polish fully dry and add a second coat.
Gel polish- Apply the base coat and cure in an LED or UV Lamp (30 secs. for LED/ 2 min for UV) Apply the first thin layer of gel polish and cure after each coat. To get maximum opacity, I recommend 3 thin coats of colour.
Now on to the fun stuff.
Using the pink polish, paint a wide stripe down the center of the nail. As you can see, it doesn't have to be perfectly straight. The silver polish on the sides will make the stripe appear neater. If using gel, Cure. If regular polish, let completely dry before moving on to the next step.
Now add the silver stripes. Using your liner brush (or toothpick) draw silver lines where the white and pink colours meet. If you're using gel polish, and you make a mistake, just wipe it off with a lint free wipe and isopropyl alcohol and try again!
Now get creative and add your favourite gems, studs, pearls etc. I used silver diamond shaped studs but the possibilities are endless. You can use nail glue to secure the studs on both gel and regular polish. I prefer to use Che gel to secure my gems because I can get the placement perfected before curing.
Almost done. Finish it off with a top coat. Go around and in between the gems not over the top of them.
Cleanse with the isopropyl alcohol and a lint free wipe to remove the sticky layer. If you're using regular polish, put your feet up and relax until they dry.
