Apply base coat to stop nails staining from coloured polish,
and to give longer lasting results.

A second coat may be needed if the polish is not very opaque.

*Helpful Hint*

Do not worry about any polish that gets onto nails
Its really easy to get that off with a q-tip / cotton bud 
dipped in polish remover, or wait till nails are completely dry and scrub
 around you nails with a nail brush.

STEP THREE: Sweetheart in Gold

The shimmer gold polish is applied with the very tip of the brush.

Using a light hand apply the polish to the tips of your nails in a 'V' shape.


Above Is one side of the heart complete.
Using a light hand start quarter way up the nail and drag 
downwards towards the centre of the tip.

Because of the shape of  the brush it will create the top of a heart shape.

STEP FOUR: Final Top Coat:

Once It's all completely dry
Finish with final layer of a top coat.

Use a Q-tip or / cotton bud dipped in polish remover 
to remove and smudges around your nails.

Enjoy your sweet nails. pair with something gold like a clutch 
or gold jewellery to really make them pop!

STEP ONE: Prep

File your nails into desired shape and clean thoroughly to rid nails of any

 grease or dust that will prevent professional results.



If needed buff top layers of nail to reduce ridges.

Apply base coat to stop nails staining from coloured polish,
and to give longer lasting results.


STEP TWO: Brown Coat(s)

Apply the brown varnish to your nails excluding the ring finger. 
A second coat may be needed if the polish is not very opaque.

STEP THREE: White Coat(s)

Apply the white varnish to your ring fingers. 
A second coat may be needed if the polish is not very opaque.


STEP FOUR: Dotty!

Using the white polish, drop a small amount onto a surface 
that is either wipeable (with varnish remover) or better than that,
 onto a piece of scrap paper or card.


Using your dotting tool, whichever item it may be, dip into the white polish and 
systematically put dots (in lines) on all the brown nails.
(Or randomly whichever you may prefer I tend to like big and small
 dots just to make it a little more interesting.)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Then switch over to the brown polish, drop a small amount onto your surface, 
and use it for dotting the white nails. 

Repeat this for all nails.

STEP FIVE: Final Top Coat

Once thats all completely dry
Finish with final layer of a top coat.

Use a Q-tip or / cotton bud dipped in polish remover 
to remove and smudges around your nails.


VoilĂ  it is done!



Go rock your Brown and White Dotty nails and wait for the compliments roll in.
