1. Cover the entire nail with purple polish. Create a pink moon on the first nail. Immediately dip a dotting tool into pink polish and create the wavy outline of the moon. Repeat on all the nails.


2. Use a large dotting tool to create the head of the anchor. Dip the same large dotting tool in purple polish to make the center of the anchor. Paint the rest of the anchor with white polish.


3. Paint white dots on the moon area and finish with a clear top coat.
