  2. Using a silver glitter polish, create dots around the top of the nail.
  3. Using a dotting tool, create the flower petals with black, white, and dark pink polish. Add silver dots for the center of the flowers. Finish with a clear quick dry top coat.

Retro Bow

  1. Apply bold pink and French white nail polish.
  2. Use a striper brush and create vertical lines with pink polish over the white tip. Use a shorter brush and paint two triangles for the bow. Allow to dry.
  3. Dip the shorter brush into a fuchsia polish and paint the center of the triangles. Put a white dot in the middle of the triangles using a large dotting tool. Finish with clear top coat.
