Step 1: Materials

These are a lot of polishes, so let me just break down what you actually need : Every color of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple), a light pink, a grey, a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen, and Kiss Nail Art in black and white. (Or paint brushes if you have those)

Step 2: Step 1

Paint big toes blue

Step 3: Step 2

Clean the polish off the Black Nail Art brush and dip it in red. Paint rainbow stripes, cleaning the old color off before dipping it in to the next paint. If you're painting this design on someone else, do the opposite of how I do these, or you'll have to do what i did- paint the Nyan Cat upside down. It's hard, avoid if possible!!!

Step 4: Step 3

Paint the Nyan Cat! Start with the pink poptart, then paint the silver head of the nyan cat. Paint red dots in the pop tart, then paint in the eyes. Last, apply top coat when the polish dries! It's hard, I know, just don't give up :)
