Apply a white nail tip to the nail using the proper procedure. Tap turquoise paint diagonally on the free edge.


Tap light green paint sparsely over the blue.


Use light gray paint to draw the dolphin’s head.


Add a black dot for the eye, and a pink line for the tongue.


Outline the dolphin’s smile in black. Highlight the head with light gray. Shade above the nose with dark gray. Use a thin wiggling motion with white paint to create the waves. Apply top coat.
