Sorry that is has been so long. I had even more issues than I thought I did with my pictures and I finally had the time to get them all straightened out.
These are some fun multi-colored semi-intricate nails that I did for a friend. After cleaning, filing, and applying a base coat:
1. apply two coats of base color (in this case, on most nails, dark blue, and on the statement nails, gold.)
2. use a white striper to make designs on each nail
3. go over the designs that are in white with other colors (it is necessary to put white first for the other colors to be able to pop out against the background color) (I decided to put accents of gold on some of the white on the purple nails and to do half purple, half turquoise on the gold nails)
