4. Then, use a striping brush to paint a thin white line down the center of each maroon line. Continue painting thin white lines vertically
and horizontally across the nail. Repeat with yellow polish.

5. Seal the design with top coat. Next, apply a dab of nail adhesive at the base of the nail. Use a pair of pointed-tip tweezers to place a charm on the nail and let it dry. Seal the charm with more top coat.
