  3. With your bobby pin, add a yellow dot in the centre of each flower
  4. Finish with a layer of glossy topcoat (Seche Vite is the best), making sure to cap the ends.

  1. Apply a thin layer of base coat
  2. Paint on two coats of white (alternatively bright and pastel colours also work well for this)
  3. Add patches of black of varied sizes to each nail. These should be uneven shapes and every nail different from the last. You could also do this with a nail art brush, or make your own by taking an old polish brush and trimming of most of the hairs
  4. Add a topcoat, both glossy and matte look great with cow print.
