1. Apply gold polish to the nail.


2. Use a long striper to paint a red line straight down the nail and another one going across.


3. Using a small striper, paint thin black swirls on the gold area. Paint a thin black line down the center of the red lines.


4. Form a bow using 3-D nail art acrylic and place it where the two lines intersect. Add a rhinestone to the center of the bow and add a clear top coat.
