3. Apply a bright red polish from the tip to middle of nails.

4. Using a precision art blush (or nail polish remover pen), create a half moon shape.

5. Apply a white or beige polish to the tips of two alternating fingers. Use a precision art brush (or nail polish remover pen) to create a half moon shape.

6. Using a skinny brush (or nail art pen), apply camel colored acrylic paint to create ‘spots’. Then, using the brush/pen again, use black or brown acrylic paint to outline each spot.
