1. Paint a base coat and then a silver polish. Even though you won't see most of the silver in the end, keep it even or else, the next coat will look uneven.
2. Start with your first stroke in the middle of the nail but leave a small gap between the cuticle and where you start. Use your cuticle as a guide to where you should place your brush. I have a little bit of a more square shaped cuticle so I'll have to round off my painting.
3. You should get something like this. It's not even yet because it's your first coat. Once it's settled a little, go over with the 2nd coat.
4. Now you should have this. Go over it with a top coat.
