5 Steps To The Perfect Graphic Mani
On the right side of each nail, create a crescent shape in a light blue lacquer.
Follow the direction of the first shape in a cobalt blue.
Continue with another layer of a fuchsia polish.
Add a thin stripe of a dark blue polish. Don't worry about having a steady hand—wavy lines work here.
Fill in the remainder of the negative space with a white polish.
Add an accent with a gold glitter polish. Done and done.
