Applying nail polish

1. Apply nail polish

To kick start this swirl nails look, go over each nail with a blue and a white stripe. Try to be as neat as possible.

2. Create the swirl effect

Using a dotting tool while the polish is still wet, carefully swirl the colors together to create a mesmerizing pattern.
