1: Apply one coat of yellow nail polish. Let it dry.
2-3: Apply thick coat of yellow nail polish.
4, 5, 6: Drop blobs of brown nail polish over wet yellow base color. To create small and large pebble shapes, place the blobs at various distances from one another.
Once dry, you can seal the design with a top coat.

Tips:
a. If you want the giraffe spots more circular: Apply a thin layer of yellow coat, wait for it to settle for 10-15 seconds then start placing the brown spots. (When the base layer is settled the blobs spread less, making the spot placement more controllable).
b. If you want a more mosaic shape: Apply thick layer of base nail color. Start dropping blobs of brown color immediately. (Since the base coat is wet, the blobs spread wider).
