Apply silver gel on the nail at a diagonal. Cure.
Apply a band of glitter gel that’s parallel to the edge of the silver gel. Cure.
Use striping paint to add black lines parallel to the glitter band. Then add black lines at the opposite slant.
Fill in every other space with black. Let the striping paint dry for a few minutes. Use red striping paint to outline the border of the glitter band. Apply gel top coat. Cure.
