   Polish the nail brown. Using a size 0 brush, paint two green circles as far apart as the nail will allow. Paint an upside-down triangle in pink between the eyes. Add white strokes that start at the tip of the nose and fan out.
   Use a 18/0 l iner brush to create tiger stripes (paint tiny lines next to each other to look like fur). Outline the mouth and eyes in black. Paint a gray fan partially on top of the white chin. Paint white fur around the tiger's eyes.
   Using a 18/0 liner brush, continue adding fur in white. Paint triangles under each side of the nose. Add black pupils. Add a line at the corner of the eye, pointing down. Add dots to the cheeks and add nostrils. With a dark brown, continue the line from the corner of the eye down to the sides of the nose.
   Use orange to highlight the fur. Draw a line across the nose, adding a dip in the center. Add a few lines on top of the gray chin. Add two white dots for pupils. Apply top coat.
