2. Paint a red line down the left side of the nail with acrylic paint. Write “A+” at the top left corner with black paint.


3. Paint very thin blue horizontal lines across the nail with acrylic paint.


4. Using black acrylic paint, write simple words on the blue lines. Finish with a gel matte top coat.
