1. Polish the nail nude (a color similar to the client’s skin tone).


2. Add five vertical stripes, with the middle one being the longest, all from the same starting point near the eponychium.


3. Use blue, green, and yellow polish to create elongated ovals at the end of each stripe.


4. Use a thin brush and green and blue polish to make small strokes all around each stripe. Add vertical gold glitter polish stripes in between each feather. Apply top coat.
