Polish the nail dark purple.


Use a striper brush and white acrylic paint to draw two touching V-shapes in opposite corners.


Use a striper brush and light purple acrylic paint to fill in an inverted V-shape inside of the touching white Vs. Also draw a purple line adjacent to the exterior of each white V.


Fill in the center gap with blue glitter polish.


Use a dotter tool and white acrylic paint to add varying sizes of white dots around the design.
