  3. Now we need to protect the cuticle from getting at her nail polish. For this purpose, the two most common ways:
    • neatly pasted each nail with tape so that the "outside" was only the nail plate;
    • the area around the nail is very generously lubricate fat cream for hands. By the way, for such purposes is fine and oil for cuticles.
  4. Remember, in the first case can be preTape off all the nails at once, so you do not get distracted by it. In the second lubricated fingers should be phased, 2-3 at a time, just make sure that the cream did not get to the nail plate, nail then simply do not lie.

Luck will form a layer of a thin film on the surface of the water. Do not forget after each droplet to wait, so the varnish will have time to spread a few seconds. For a beautiful pattern, we need 5-10 drops of contrasting shades.
  6. Once the droplets flowed and formed into a filmform a circle on the surface of the water, we need to create a pattern. To do this, take a toothpick or a needle and begin to divide the circle into parts. First, divide into 4 equal parts, for this conduct tip toothpick from the center to the edge of the 4 times. Do not immerse the toothpick too deep into the water, and after each contact with the varnish necessarily wipe the edge of the napkin.

Bend your fingers so that the nail plates were placed parallel to the water surface, and gently lower the closer to the center of the pattern fingers. Hold for a few seconds, but this time with the other hand take a toothpick and gently remove the remaining water spray.
