1. Apply a nail tip to the nail using the proper procedure. Polish the tip bright pink. Apply top coat and let dry. (Optional — recommended for strength: Add a clear acrylic overlay to the tip.)

  

2. Apply top coat diagonally on the free edge, then immediately dip the section into fine, transparent embossing powder (shown is Stampendous Embossing Powder in Transparent).

  

3. On a separate surface (not on the tip), shape three Super Sculpey polymer clay cookies with a slight curve so they will adhere better. Bake the three cookies according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Use acrylic paint to color the cookies tan with dark brown dots. Apply top coat. Glue the cookies to the tip.
