Use a sponge to dab yellow polish onto the nail, starting from the corner of the free edge and applying diagonally. Next use a sponge to apply orange polish diagonally, then coral polish, then teal polish.

  

Repeat step one, focusing on deepening and blending the colors together.

  

Starting at the yellow corner, use a black striper to add two lines in a V-shape.

  

Add black lines to create the branches and leaves.
