1. Apply three tones of yellow paint or polish in a diagonal curve along the side and tip of the nail. Start with the lightest yellow and end with the darkest.


2. Apply three tones of blue paint or polish in a diagonal curve below the yellow. Start with the darkest blue and end with the lightest blue or white if you prefer.


3. Add three back V shapes to make the birds. To make the sun, apply a dot of the darkest yellow and paint triangles around it to create rays.


4. In the lightest yellow section, apply tiny dots of dark yellow and brown paint or polish to create sand


5. Allow to dry and apply a clear top coat.
