  • STEP 1

    Prep your nails with two coats of OPI Nail Envy, and two coats of Essie Mademoiselle.

    SLIDE 1 OF 4
  • STEP 2

    Use the striping brush to create three-point guide dots on your nails, and paint the middle finger nail, leaving a blank stripe in the center.

    SLIDE 2 OF 4
  • STEP 3

    Connect the dots from your cuticle to the top center with the striping brush and fill in the empty space on the two sides.

    SLIDE 3 OF 4
  • STEP 4

    Dab a small amount of clear top coat where the stud should be, then place the stud. The wet top coat will "glue" the stud to your nail without using nail glue. Do this one finger at a time. Finish this design with two more layers of top coat, you might need to do thicker coats for the spike studs to secure them to your nails.
