1. Apply two coats of a flesh-toned base coat and allow to dry.  Paint a white French with a chevron smile line on the tip.


2. Using a thin brush, paint a swirling design using navy blue and red.


3. Fill the design with the colors, being careful to not touch the small white areas between each color.


4. Paint a line between the base color and the tip with silver glitter. Add the stars using nail glue. Finish with a clear top coat.
