1. On a white nail, using a dotting tool and black acrylic paint, place six dots where you want the tie to be.


2. Color in between the dots with black acrylic paint.


3. With a small art brush , paint thick, dark purple diagonal lines on the tie (reversing the direction on the knot portion) and thinner light purple lines as an accent color.


4. Top coat it with Rapid Dry Top Coat by OPI.
