Step 1 Start with clean nails.
Step 2 Add a base coat.
Add a base coat of any color. I chose green.
Step 3 Draw a line down the middle.
Using whatever tool your comfortable with, paint a straight line down the middle of the nail. The color of this line should be a darker shade of whatever base color you chose.
Step 4 Add details.
Draw thinner lines of the same color angling out of the center line.
Step 5 Add more details.
Add more line angling from the center line. The color of these lines should be in the same color family.
Step 6 Add even more colors.
Step 7 Add a clear top coat.
This will keep your nails from chipping.
