Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
I used these for my design. YOU WILL NEED:
  1. A black polish
  2. White polish
  3. Orange polish
  4. Light orange of yellow polish
  5. Blue polish
  6. Cuticle stick
  7. Small paint brush
  8. A thin nail polish brush
  9. Clear top coat

Step 2: Color

Picture of Color
Paint every nail blue. Once that dries, Paint the orange design shown. (Leave the thumb plain blue) You may need multiple coats. I used blue and orange because they're opposites on the color wheel and they'd really pop together!

Step 3: Details

Picture of Details
  1. Use the thin brush and dip it in black. Outline the orange.
  2. Using the non-brush side of the paint blush, paint it yellow and add spots to the orange.
  3. Using the cuticle stick, paint one side white and add the suction cups
  4. Use the non-brush side of the paint brush to add a big white dot for the eye
  5. Paint part of the cuticle stick black and add the black pupil to the eye
And with that, you're done! Apply top coat once it dries COMPLETELY. Please rate, leave comments, follow me, and check out my other designs! Thanks :D
