Victoria Zegarelli demonstrates how to do Sochi Nesting Doll nail art.
1. Paint the nail with red polish. Draw a baby pink circle toward the top of the nail. Create the neckline with a wavy black line, as shown.
2. Draw mittens on each side of the nail with blue paint. Apply yellow at the top of the face for hair. Draw a black line to the right to create the coat. Draw three lines horizontally across the vertical black line. Paint five dots in the Olympic colors where shown.
3. Fill the center of the dots with smaller red dots to create the rings of the Olympic patch. Using black paint, draw a face; outline the face and hair. Draw shoulders connecting to the mittens. Draw small triangles on the ends of the horizontal lines. Paint a black line across the bottom of the tip and fill in. Create the shape of a hood at the top. Highlight the mittens with a light blue paint, and the hood with white paint. Lightly highlight the top of the arms and coat closures. Seal with top coat.
