1. Paint two coats of white nail polish. Allow to dry.

2. Use a makeup sponge to randomly apply spots of color on the nail using purple, blue, red, and silver polish. Repeat until desired opacity. Allow to dry.

3. Use a thin brush and black polish to handpaint a mandala-inspired design. Once dry, seal the look with top coat.
